Musonic is home to composer and sound designer Rod Morris. He works with filmmakers & digital media content creators to help to bring visual ideas to life.
I’ve been working in the field of creative audio production scoring ads, short films & documentaries for over 10 years. Working closely with digital media content creators making sure they get their audio right. Providing original music composition for directors when library just wont do. Bringing a subtle, forensic realism to audio mixes in post production that is often overlooked. Going above and beyond the scope of the project when it’s gotta be done, and always, looking after my regular clients.
That’s what I do.
“Rod’s instincts for finding the right sound are matched only by an obsessive attention to detail that makes him truly exciting to collaborate with. If you’re looking for a button-pusher, look somewhere else – Rod is a storyteller – the kind of artist you can trust to go away with your project and return with magic. You will not be disappointed.”
Rod was extremely professional and adaptable when faced with constantly shifting deadlines as a result of Covid delays. Most importantly he worked brilliantly to the director and producer’s briefs and composed a beautiful score that perfectly complimented the tone of each episode. He is a great communicator, easy to work with and very talented. I look forward to working with Rod again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
“Working with Rod was a great experience. Rod is passionate about his work and has a wealth of experience and knowledge of what works and what doesn’t. He designed the sound for our short film, Hasan Everywhere, and gave it that extra personal touch that’s only possible when you’re working with someone who really loves what they do. I would highly recommend him.”
Rod had two weeks to compose an entire score for our feature film, Bojaya. Not only did he deliver, but he elevated the project. He brought his own style and class to create a beautiful and moving soundtrack to some very difficult subject matter. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.
“I have worked with Rod on several occasions and have always found him easy to work with. From briefing through to final versions, he is always open to collaboration on revisions which is really essential for advertising. He shows great commitment to a project and goes out of his way to help make things happen. Pretty good at lending a hand recently on a lyrics-led piece which required quite a lot of tricky composition and arrangement.”
My studio is based in Connemara in the beautiful West of Ireland, with unrestricted sea views and surrounded by sycamore forest. The studio is client-friendly and the perfect location for a final post-production mix. It also serves as a creative retreat for directors who wish to spot their current project with the composer at hand. I provide food and board for small groups with additional lodgings available nearby for larger groups if required.
I charge a base production rate of €400/day, €50/hr. Usages fees for original content are negotiable and vary according to media, territory & your budget.
