Brian Clifton is a Belgian film composer with international recognition. As an autodidact and multi-instrumentalist, he has contributed his revered talents and chameleon-like skills to a growing-body of feature film and telemovie soundtracks, and also across numerous tv-series, short films, musicals, theatre productions, commercials and game scores.
Brian's versatility allows him, even better, constantly seduces him to experiment with various styles and musical directions. At the same time, whenever he's permitted a free hand, some distinct features and characteristics all his own keep jumping out: mostly epic, still intimate, catchy melodic, rhythmic, and inherently an elegant blend of acoustic orchestration with electronics. For many directors and producers, this eclectic interplay means the appealing elevated value in the high-end realization of their projects.
What I like most about writing music for film is not only the exciting experience of what my music can do to a scene, but what film gives back to my music.
