Eden Mulholland

Eden is a well-respected and prolific composer and sound producer for theatre, film and dance. He also produces and performs his own music. His take on composition can involve unexpected arrivals and departures, conventional and operatic voices, ripped apart rhythms and ethereal bridges, solidly resounding hooks and moody ascents.

His first love was dance and he has composed for an array of companies and performance artists. Eden has worked solidly as a collaborator with Malia since 1999.

Eden was the winner of the 2009 & 2010 Best Music at the Tempo Dance Festival and was nominated for a Qantas Media Award for Best Music for a TV series for his work on World Kitchen, which has played in over 50 countries worldwide. His commercial work has been commissioned internationally for companies like Zoomslide Media, Radiation, 42 Below, MTV, C4 TV, TV3 and licensed to MGM and CBS.

A background in performance with a strong visual and kinaesthetic understanding has allowed Eden a particular approach to composition.

A gifted multi-instrumentalist, digital artist and vocals freedom fighter, he is known for his generous and uninhibited delivery, whether performing solo or with his bands. He carries student-of-life qualities into the studio where that preparedness to let rip and let go, and be open to new perspectives on his songs, stand his recording collaborations in good stead.

Eden has produced dozens of music videos since 2008 for his own work as well as other musicians and bands within New Zealand and Australia.

There seems to be no limit to what Eden can compose for. Eden is also accomplished at editing and designing. A true jack of all creative trades.
