Joe is an up and coming young composer for media based in the United Kingdom. He is currently the founder and owner of Radiant Moon Audio Ltd, specialising in music composition for film, television and video games. Working from his studio in North Wales, Joe is constantly writing new and unique music in a vast range of genres. His characteristic sound features a blend of wondrous orchestral and choral scoring, enhanced with aspects of rock, folk and electronic music.
In addition to composing, Joe also works in Sound Design on occasion, often including interesting sounds he created or recorded in his music. With almost ten years of academic training in music, and many more spent studying a range of techniques independent of formal education, Joe is an avid performer, having played in many situations, from orchestra to small folk bands. This immersion in music has contributed greatly to his musical development and style.
Over the past few years, Joe has been commissioned to write music for numerous projects of different size and scope. These have ranged from simple student films, scores for orchestral performances and underscoring for a play to independent video games for the Xbox Live Arcade, iPhone and Personal Computer.
When not composing, Joe can usually be found reading, writing or playing video games. Other hobbies include mythology, playing the flute or piano in a variety of instrumental groups and collecting a variety of oddities from Japanese video game memorabilia to items and musical instruments of cultural significance around the world. Joe believes in maintaining a strong internet presence and is a proud member of the Game Audio Network Guild, amongst other social networks.
