Michael Horsphol is one of the many gifted and talented modern-day composers to emerge from the Australian classical scene in the past decade. He has been playing and composing for over 40 years. His catalogue ranges from symphonies to solo piano music, to orchestral arrangements, in keeping with his new role as Head of Orchestral Music for Blue Pie Records.
In his compositions, he brings to life a one-man orchestral show with virtual artists. He brings "a superb piece of musical heaven to the ears and minds of people from all walks of life and all races and creeds".
Michael Horpsphol's music has featured on the Discovery Channel, Broadjam, BBC3, National Geographic, ABC Documentaries and ABC TV, to name a few.
With a catalogue of over 200 titles and songs, Horsphol is one of Australia's most in-demand producers. He has been called on to produce, write and arrange for many of Blue Pie's roster of artists, providing them with a theatrical cinematic soundscape to attach to some of their more 'orchestral' compositions.
In 2009 Michael Horsphol signed a world-wide recording and publishing agreement with Indie powerhouse Blue Pie. As Damien Reilly - CEO of Blue Pie says:
"Michael is nothing short of a music genius that you get to meet once in every 30 years if you are lucky. I see an exceptional amount of talent in my role as the CEO of Blue Pie and see an amazing future in cinema for Michael. We have assembled a team to develop Michael's presence and music brand in the coming years. Look for his name in the musical credits of your favourite film in the not too distant future. We are honoured to have what I regard as one of Australia's greatest classical and ambient new age composers on the label."
