Manuel Federici is an Italian composer specializing in modern trailer music, sound design, music for video games, and films . He graduated in music composition, orchestration and midi orchestration at Saint Louis College of Music in Rome.
His style of composition is a continuous evolution. While influenced by his academic, rational and theoretical studies, his style is also derived from a more instinctive and unconscious approach. Manuel is fascinated by African rhythm music which inspires his trailer compositions. He is constantly improving his skills, working hard, and studying.

Music has been the center of composer Alexandra Martin’s universe from a very young age. First discovering her love for it at age five, when she sat down at a piano, her connection has only grown and grown and the rest is history. For over ten years she has also been singing and is deeply passionate about exploring her voice. Together with singing, she loves to compose- putting her thoughts into musical stories using an array of incredibly inspiring instruments.
She says,” I hope to take the listener on a transcendental journey, whilst weaving together different styles that may originate from any time, in any place in the world. Pushing the boundaries with no rules or limits excites me but most importantly, the ability to create meaning, beauty and new worlds within music that could unite us and bring us together. Currently I am working towards the completion of my first full length album.
I am constantly on the lookout for like-minded musicians who may share my aspirations. No matter what instrument you play, or where you are from! If you are interested in collaborating or would like me to work with you on a project then I would love for you to contact me.”

Joseph Ferris is a film, trailer, and video game composer from Fairfax, Virginia. Music has always been a big part of Joe’s life. When he was four or five, he heard the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle’s theme music and was instantly hooked. He grabbed a tape recorder and recorded himself singing it so that he could listen to it any time. It didn’t dawn on him to record the television. At age twelve he picked up guitar and began what would become decades of formal lessons and independent training.
At sixteen, he began recording himself with a digital 8-track (that recorded on 100mb zip disks.) Soon after, DAWs were discovered along with the vast and endless array of hardware and sample libraries, and the hopeless yet insatiable desire to own them all. Joe was able to “cut his teeth” in film by working with Jack Eagen of Down Poor Pictures, from Asheville, NC. They did many shorts and trailers together between 2010 and 2013 – some of which never saw the light of day (you know how it goes).
In 2013, and 2014, Joe composed music for Drew Bolduc’s second film titled “Science Team”, as well as for metal bands: Cryogen and Alleageon, from Denver, Colorado. The following year he worked on the upcoming Allegaeon record titled “Proponent for Sentience” (2016), an epic MMORPG video game titled “Sacrament” (2017), and Bolduc’s third film, tentatively titled “Assassinaut” (2017). As he is interested in licensing music for use in trailers and scoring films / video games, send Joe a line if you would like to use any of his music, and he will work with you to come to a fair price for your individual needs.
Featured below are his compositions “For Clayton”, “Dragonbinder” and “7,000 Years in Tibet”
