Will Rixon

Will has been playing, composing and performing music since childhood, first on the piano and later, on a variety of other instruments. Though a founding member and writer for folk-rock band Garden State, his first love is classical film soundtracks and he has composed for several short films including Flea, I am Thou, and Virgin Shorts finalist, The Big Idea.

Will was trained as a classical pianist, but considers himself formally untrained, as he composes entirely by ear and by instinct. With this organic background in composition, his music feels both familiar and unique.

His debut classical album, Acinematic, is a selection of 10 pieces, intended for films that are yet to be made. Each song represents a sub-genre of film composition that Will feels passionate about as both a film-lover and film score enthusiast.
