Guillaume 'Guigz' Art
French-British composer based in London, UK.
Audio for all media.
With over 20 years of music making, Guillaume "Guigz" Art, (prononced Giggs...and also sometimes simply known as ‘G’), loves crafting soulful and expressive soundtracks for all media. Picking up guitar in his teens (after hearing GNR's Appetite for Destruction!), he started writing and performing in multiple rock, folk and alternative bands in France and the UK, where he grew as a songwriter, often switching roles between guitarist, vocalist, bassist, engineer, programmer and producer.
After graduating in broadcast and sound design from the University of Westminster, London, he then subsequently cut his teeth in the world of music for media with the lo-fi 'American Dreams' documentary and the short film"Mr Bubbleman" back in 2011.
While working in licensing, Guigz perfected his overall production skills in rock, industrial and electronica. He progressively graduated to other instruments, extending his palette to funk, synths and hybrid/ and neo-classical. Guigz's sound - driven yet polished and broadcast ready - continues to evolve with the exploration of new landscapes (such as spatial audio/ 3D sound). Recently, his music has been featured on productions for SKY TV and UNIVERSAL MUSIC. Guigz also 'puts out' original music regularly (see details on socials / news).
_GUITAR, VOCALS AND MORE
In Today's environment we adapt, combine and "cross-over" to different styles when required by the emotion we look for, sometimes within the same piece. Guigz strives to place his guitars & vocals in minimal, dramatic or simply unusual ways together with more traditional instruments. The goal is always to create a distinct and expressive narrative.
Guigz always starts by understanding what the story needs emotionally and creatively, working as a team to deliver the best result for our audience, on time and on budget. We then decide what the key moments are, the pace, the twists and the turns. From there, ideas are born and sounds are made. A soundtrack is then beautifully crafted, produced and delivered!
