David Lawrie

Music Producer & Sound Design Artist

Working professionally in the music industry for the past 6 years, David has produced and arranged with and for many artists, and he has written for commercial projects, film and theatre. In his solo musical work, David makes use of found-sounds and sound design, which led him to work with director David Diley as sound designer for the film “Of Shark And Man.”

Classically trained from the age of 7, David has a particularly musical approach to sound design, with the results being very creative and inspired, rather than purely functional. He is a perfectionist who will go the extra mile to add that final “sparkle” to a project.

David sometimes composes under the pseudonym “Haruko”, and he set up Ishikawa Records as an independent label for independent musicians.

David is an exceptionally talented Sound Design Artist with a meticulous ear for detail and the nuances which elevate a production from the ordinary to the extraordinary and this skill, in conjunction with our cinematography and post production ensures that not only do your projects look incredible, they also sound incredible.

David is just another reason to choose Scarlet View Media to help you stand out from the crowd.
