BIOGRAPHY

 

With a background in classical composition and a Masters Degree from AFTRS in composing for screen, Edwin Montgomery is a composer, musician and mixed media artist who works across film, games, immersive theatre, installations and mixed media artworks. They are known for the epic orchestral soundtrack to Warhammer 40,000: Regicide (nominated for Best Audio at the Australian Game Developer Awards), the dystopian soundtrack to Wasteland (released by Remote Control Records) and their live solo performances of original multi-instrumental film scores.

Their film credits include the Oscar nominated feature documentary Time, which won Best Documentary Directing at Sundance 2020. Edwin also creates sonic-driven interactive multimedia artworks and games, including Neon Cyborg Cat Club (winner of the Freeplay Experimental Game Award); and Isolationist Nightclub Simulator, an online interactive music experience funded by Creative Victoria. As part of The Parallel Effect they have created sound and music for the global Vigil for the Smooth Handfish and the immersive AI driven work, Message From Another You. Recently they composed the music for the John Olsen tribute projected onto the Sydney Opera House sails as part of Vivid Sydney 2023.
