Lachlan, a talented composer and music producer, received his early musical education in classical piano and theory at the Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium in Australia. He was awarded the junior and senior scholarships for instrumental study during his time there. Later, he studied composition at the University of Newcastle under the tutelage of Colin Spiers and Richard Vella. In 2017, Lachlan graduated with a Bachelor of Music (Honours, Class I) in Composition and Creative Production.
Lachlan’s unique approach to music is influenced by technology, combinations of modern and classical instruments, and lesser-known experimental musical genres. He is fascinated by how different mediums such as screen and video games can inspire new directions in music. Lachlan’s professional debut in this area was in 2018 when he composed the full soundtrack for Retro Army Ltds game “The Spy Who Shot Me”. Since then, he has worked on the soundtracks for various independent video games, films, and more.
Lachlan’s compositions are influenced by a diverse range of styles, including minimalism, progressive rock, post-rock, jazz, heavy metal, film scores, and video game music. He is a member of the Australian Guild of Screen Composers.
