A recent participant in the Los Angeles Film Conducting Intensive with David Newman, Arhynn is a French/South African composer and pianist. Having obtained a degree in music and 2 diplomas in classical piano, she moved to London where she earned her Masters in Composition for Film and TV at the London College of Music, winning a composition competition just before graduation.
Her credits include short films, features, documentaries and a stage production of Chekov's ‘The Cherry Orchard’. She is currently scoring the spy action/thriller Eye for an Eye and the drama Nine Nights.
Arhynn doesn't realise how good she is, and this is a real strength in her work. She patiently and genuinely listened to what I was trying to achieve with the score. She guided the process with her experience, creativity, insightfulness and professionalism. The result was a score that far exceeded my vision of what it could be, bringing the film to life. It created another layer to the storytelling, guiding the viewers emotional journey in the way I hoped that it would. It was a privilege to work with Arhynn, and I would do so again without a second thought.

After my wife died of cancer a few years ago I wanted to try and make sense of her loss. As a film maker I decided to put together a very personal documentary film. As I wanted an original score I looked for a composer who would be sensitive to the particular material. I discovered Arhynn. We talked at length about life and death and dealing with them both. I liked the way she really endeavoured to get into the real heart and soul of the film. Over a period of months she produced ideas which we discussed and modified. I greatly enjoyed this relationship and found she was always ready to improve and adapt. I greatly appreciated her incisiveness and honesty. I feel she has the creative talent and the people skills to be a highly valued and respected film/tv composer and recommend her without hesitation.

Music to picture
Creating music is a mysterious process. As a composer I take visuals, colours, pacing and emotions and I turn them into sound. I believe each project calls for its own unique sound-world; that combination of instruments, harmonies, textures and style that reflects and enhances what is already there on screen. The music adds another layer and, like an actor, the way I arrive at understanding what that layer needs to be is through talking to the director about the mood, intent and trajectory of the story and combining that with my own instincts and what I react to on screen. For me arriving at the sound for the score is a completely synergetic process to realise the director's vision.
