Michelle Scullion has composed for film scores since the 1980’s. In the film genre, she has written and recorded for features (4), short films (25), documentaries (13), audio visual presentations (10), videos (over 50) and interactive CD Roms. She has also composed for contemporary dance works (13), theatre (many), television and radio, and is a recording artist with 5 CD’s on her own label. Michelle composes a wide range of styles, including classical to country, hip-hop grooves to new age, funk and rock to electronic, and avant-garde. She also at times incorporates the sounds of the environment within her scores.
Although she writes with an international flavour, her work certainly shows the vastness of the New Zealand landscape and at times is interspersed with sounds of the Pacific. She works with instruments from Maoritanga, traditional Western sounds and those from the rock and electronic fields. She has her own studio. Several of her soundscapes are currently part of the installations at Te Papa, the Museum of New Zealand. Many of the films and programmes she has composed and recorded for have won awards internationally and continue to be screened around the world. Michelle enjoys composing for films of all kind.Source: Michelle Scullion, March 2004
