Our Story

Welcome to Black Lab Music, where passion meets creativity.

 

As a composer, I am dedicated to producing original, beautiful, and emotional music that will leave a lasting impression.

 

My love for music is only rivalled by my love for family and dogs, and I strive to bring that same level of passion and dedication to each project that I work on.

Hi, I'm Michael.....and I'm The Emotional Music Guy at Black Lab Music

 

I am a Media Composer and Music Producer specialising in composing emotion through the medium of music. I take people on a transformational journey, engaging them in the story in a way that creates strong emotional bonds.

 

Because without the emotional music, Jaws was just another hungry fish.


I compose music for use within the media, creatively collaborating with Videographers, Filmmakers and Podcasters to tell unique stories and ensure that the audience connects with the emotional intent in a way that creates a lasting impression.

Music has the unparalleled ability to take all our joy and all our pain, condense it into a single moment & then enable us to relive that moment without any of the consequences.
 

It is the vehicle that enables a complex set of interactions between the subjective & objective, effecting our emotions, with the ability to change our mood & behaviour.
 

Music is the simple communication of complex emotion.

Every frame tells a unique story and so does every note. Bespoke music gives you control of every aspect of your creative vision, preventing the inevitable compromise of library/Royalty Free music. Bespoke music always stands tall.

Our music has been used for multiple clients including the British Olympic Rowing Team and TESLA.

As Dan Ford, Story Screen Ltd puts it....

 

"Michael provides a fantastic service to videographers like me.

 

The added value bespoke music gives to my video projects is massive, and Michael has a great understanding of emotional beats and storytelling.

 

His work heightens dramatic sequences and lends depth to more prosaic pieces.

 

Plus he's a great collaborator, keen to work out together what the work needs."

So why Black Lab Music? It's simple really. I have a Black Lab called Maya. She is exciting yet reliable and adventurous yet dependable…. everything we seek to be in working with you.

I look forward to connecting with you

God Bless

Michael
