The introduction of a Commodore 64 computer into the family home in the early 1980ʼs began Luke’s fascination with computers and sound. Having had no formal musical training but instead yielding to a keen interest in how things work, Luke has developed a unique rapport among choreographers & directors in the development of soundtracks for dance, theatre & film. Luke’s appreciation of cinema has inspired a diverse sound making practice and led him to work in areas including music composition, sound design, foley and sound effects editing. Luke is renowned for producing detailed soundtracks with a focus on a complete sound experience, a quality that sees his work in great demand both nationally and around the world.
