Tim Rideout is a maestro of musical magic, performing feats of auditory illusion to the delight of motion picture audiences worldwide.
His mastery of storytelling for episodic form, use of sub textually-driven score and deep knowledge of modern production also entertains and amazes creative collaborators as well.
Never mind his Hollywood orchestration chops, background in jazz drums and classical piano – Tim also writes pop hits, produces EDM and plays a mean Irish bodhrán at the pub.
So how did a fish-shovelling, rock-drumming band geek from the back woods of New Brunswick become a prolific film, television and media composer?
A lot of hard work, consistency and a little bit of magic.
