I’m Nathan Moody, and I make movies that play inside your head.
My music is made from found sounds, field recordings, modular synthesizers, guitars, toys, and anything else I can get my hands on, processed through a mix of modern software and vintage hardware. I most enjoy mixing atonality with melody, organic with synthetic, and soundscape with structure.
I’m a multi-disciplinary artist and designer living in the San Francisco Bay Area. On the audio side, I am a musician, sound designer for linear and interactive media, and a mastering engineer. I’m also a motion graphics artist and experimental filmmaker, interactive creative director and UX designer, animator, photographer, and illustrator.
