Brandon-Shea Mutala has been a fan of music since he was a wee boy and his mother would throw dance parties in their living room, spinning the vinyl sounds of Supertramp, Streethart, Whitney Houston, and Tina Turner. This love of music would expand over many years but would explode with a love of electronic music when he was 18 years of age, attending the University of Regina. It was then that he discovered Tangerine Dream, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and more.
Movies were also a major part of his life. While they could not afford a VCR of their own, Brandon-Shea has many fond memories of going to the local movie rental store and then stopping by his grandparents' house so that the family could borrow a VCR. At a young age, probably too young (definitely too young) his mother introduced him to scary films and tv shows which would shape his viewing preference going forward.
While he was always a fan of movie soundtracks, it wasn't until 2010, and the hectic addition of children to his life, that he discovered his love of film scores. Too busy to sit down and watch the essential minimum of at least four movies each day off, he began to collect films scores so that he could listen and imagine or remember the movies while he was working. His original love of electronic music has definitely influenced his preferred film score type.
He is happily married to Marcy and has three wonderful daughters Aubrey, and twins Annika and Ezri, who he is slowly exposing to the classics of the silver screen
He is also obsessed with Star Trek.
