Truly Unique Music
I’m Nathan Gulla and my mission is to change peoples’ perception of what media music can be. I’ve heard it referred to as “watered-down Classical” and perhaps that’s true in some cases, but that’s not good enough for me and there’s no reason it can’t be more.
I feel as though there’s this narrow window of acceptability that composers are pressured into tip-toeing around. My philosophy is of course, partially, to make my music fit my director’s vision, but it’s also to create something that has a level of sophistication and interest. Something different, even if that sounds a little scary.
I love the way I write, and I think you will too. My style is highly melodic and rather rhythmic, underscored by not-just-your-typical-ho-hum chord progressions. Suffice it to say, I would be thrilled to work on your next project and I promise you won’t regret it should you hire me.
