Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, Alex Harris grew up in an interesting multi cultural family and today resides in Italy, living as an Italian American. He grew up playing drums to Led Zeppelin, but the sounds of Enya’s music and Jan Hammer’s “Beyond the Mind’s Eye” inspired him to write music for films. His career began by creating classical orchestral music mixed with intricate motion and ambience for the luxurious Bang & Olufsen’s line of home theatre products. Since then, he has set a dramatic tone for numerous scenes in documentaries and short feature films.
Dramatic, epic and heart moving, these are only a few words used to describe Alex Harris' repertoire of music. "You don't need a video in order to write good background music...just take a look at the world."
