BEHIND THE ART

Akira Wing has always been musically and visually inclined with a love and passion for film & varying blends of symphonic and electronic music synced to picture; From a young age, inspired by great collaborations of the past, between composers and directors such as Ennio Morricone/Sergio Leone, John Carpenter/Alan Howarth/Shirley Walker, Stanley Kubrick/Wendy Carlos as well as early works of Vangelis, Jerry Goldsmith, Basil Poledouris, Tangerine Dream, Brad Fiedel, Kitaro, Jan Hammer and Genesis. As a dual major in both Film and Music in college, Akira Wing became the go-to person for music for many students; through this journey he met longtime collaborators Matt and Ross Duffer (Stranger Things, Hidden, Wayward Pines). He scored their early films, 'We All Fall Down', 'Eater' and the Duffer produced 'Abraham's Boys', directed by Dorothy Street; All to positive film festival success. He works periodically with long-time friend and colleague Mark Nicholson, who directed 'The Milkman'; Akira and Mark made the viral short 'Vengeance Rides a Train' together. Akira has also scored several projects for other Chapman alumni including Justin Lutsky of Epic Image Entertainment. Akira collects vintage analogue synthesizers with Mark Nicholson of Eyepatch Entertainment (Listed to the right), programming unique polyphonic and unison sounds. He also runs a fairly popular YouTube channel in his spare time making silly videos.
