Hamish Oliver

Composition & Sound Design for Games/TV/Film/Theatre

Hi! I'm a composer and sound designer for those things mentioned just above. I also do a lot of related things such as performing, arranging, lecturing, musical directing, and synth programming. My work as an arranger and performer appears on albums by a few different recording artists, and I've toured internationally several times as a keyboard player. I'm currently building contacts and skills in the video game world after winning a professional development award, and looking forward to attending the 2017 Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco to continue immersing myself in the music, sound and techniques of that world.

Full Bio

Game music/audio showreel

Over the last few years I've been composing and designing sound for video games, and aim to become as proficient in audio middleware (e.g. Wwise) as I am in music/sound creation. In 2015 I was given an APRA Professional Development Award ($NZD10,000) to further this.

Film/TV/theatre composition

I've been composing and designing sound professionally for film/TV/theatre since 1997.

Other Video Examples


I play piano for the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, and have toured internationally with several recording artists.
