Simon J. Hunter focuses on what he excels at: bringing auditory sophistication to stunning visuals.

Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Simon relocated to Los Angeles after attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston, quickly becoming one of the most in-demand composers for film and television.

His work can often be heard in over 130 countries on hit dramas such as CSI and CSI NY as well as movie trailers for Iron Man, Hulk, and Wanted, among others. Kurt Vonnegut collaborated with Hunter in creating an other-worldy, musical interpretation of Slaughterhouse Five entitled "Tock Tick" featuring Mr. Vonnegut's vocals. In 2006 Hunter created "Simonic Boom", dedicated to providing tastemaker music and sound design to movie trailer producers.
