I am a composer and audio producer who was born and raised in Tasmania, Australia. As a young person I developed a strong passion for music and through studying piano and music theory began to write music.

I have recently completed a Bachelor of Audio at SAE Institute in Melbourne. SAE offered the specialised units of study that enabled me to focus on my areas of interest and strength which are creating soundtracks and audio assets for video games and film.

In both my contract work and in assessments I have consistently demonstrated my capability as an efficient and reliable worker who can effectively manage a range of roles in team projects. I hope to forge a strong career in the creative industries that encompasses my passions.



“I approached James McGowan to compose for an animated children’s television series I was producing that aired in 2015. He delivered a professional sounding product within the short time-frame required, and worked around the notes delivered by my client. Overall the soundtrack he provided elevated my production to another level, and I look forward to working with him again in the future.”
