We are Daniel and Joshua, composers and sound designers from Singapore.
I am a reformed self-loather of my audio interests. Sometimes, I wish audio were better understood and valued. Usually, I love it precisely because of its arcane, under-the-radar power. Audiences hear sound but are rarely conscious of its emotional effect.

Josh defies drummer jokes by being that good—at writing, singing and producing, too. He has impeccable taste in musical sound design and elegant polyrhythms. He has also scored a feature film we can’t yet talk about, and shall write something about himself shortly.
