From the meditative piano to tension-creating strings, PremiumBeat artist Evan MacDonald creates filmic music for improved storytelling.
Evan MacDonald was born in Montreal, Canada and discovered his love for music writing early in his career. His passion led him to Berklee College of Music, from which he holds a Masters in Scoring for Film, Television and Video Games.
Today Evans music is a mixture of orchestral elements and organic soundscapes. It's full of bold experimentation and youthful energy that you don't hear often. Its sound takes the listener on a journey from the comfortable nostalgic lows of days gone by to the energetic heights of the video game world. From tasting the moment to enjoying the future, his tracks guide us through a wide range of emotions. We love to showcase Evan's work and talk about his approach to music writing.
Evan's work stimulates the listener's senses with his meticulous attention to detail and strict structure. His cinematic music is timeless and stimulating at the same time. Each composition is a unique and sincere melody that can help evoke more emotion in any video scene. The lows and heights of its sound take the listener on an inspiring, fast-paced journey on which he can merge his dreams with reality.
Stories are important to Evan. But it is also about his personal experiences and feelings. From the initial idea to the orchestra session across the room, Evan has every experience where the sound captures its surroundings. This immersion in sound results in incredible tracks that are perfect for both short commercials and complex movie scenes. Let's listen to Evan.
