After years of playing in bands and producing his own electronic music for labels such as Neo Ouija (UK), Front End Synthetics & Underscan (DE), Rod’s love of audio tech evolved into sound design for picture for which he has worked on numerous features, promos and idents providing bespoke, creative audio.
