Hey there music lovers, I'm Alun Richards - film and TV composer, sound designer, and audio mixing and mastering maestro extraordinaire! Back in 1994, I established Cut & Paste Generation, which quickly became one of the most respected and highly sought-after original music composition and audio post-production facilities in South Africa and around the globe.


As one of South Africa's most awarded film composers, I've snagged an impressive array of accolades from highly respectable international awards ceremonies for both short form advertising and long form film and TV work. I'm talking multiple Cannes Lions Grand Prix, The Loerie Awards, LIAA, Clio, DnAD, SAFTA, Hollywood Music Workshop, and more!


After successfully scaling Cut & Paste Generation, I established Kwazi Mojo Media in 2004 as the industry's leading audio post-production facility. And in 2005, I became a co-owner and founding investor of Bladeworks Post Production facilities - which, with its targeted core team of the absolute best video and audio post-production creatives, redefined what the future of post-production facilities would look like.


I'm highly experienced in all the strategic, management, creative, technical aspects and film production industry workflows, including post-production supervision. With over three decades of successful business ownership and operation of class-leading film, video, and audio production and post-production facilities, I know my stuff!


Recently, I've begun releasing my extensive back catalog of tracks and film scores, along with newly produced tracks and albums, through Sheer Publishing's and Downtown Publishing's production music library. And as of 2020, as the post-production, music composition, and film, TV, and gaming industries adapt to newer and more cost-efficient structures, I'm excited to operate Cut & Paste Generation remotely from my private state-of-the-art certified Dolby Atmos music composition, recording, mixing, mastering, and audio post-final mix studio.


Some milestones? Oh, I've composed and post-produced over 10,000 advertising commercial music scores and soundtracks since 1990. I've also composed over 40 feature film original music scores and facilitated full sound post-production on over 45 feature film, TV, and long-format projects. And let's not forget my impressive wins, like my first of six DnAD's in 1996, my first "Best Music Composition Worldwide" for "BMW Hypnotist" at The One Awards in 1998, and my first Cannes Grand Prix for "Best Music Composition" for Reach For A Dream "Sam" in 1999.


But enough about me, let's talk about the services I offer. I have a Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 HE certified music scoring & audio post-mixing studio, where I create bespoke music scores and offer licensing and publishing services. I also have a library production music catalogue through Sheer Publishing. And I specialize in stereo, Apple Spatial, Dolby Atmos, and Immersive audio mixing and mastering, as well as songwriting, recording, and production. For artists and bands, I'm a music producer, and for TV and film, I offer audio post-supervision and music and soundtrack direction and supervision.


So, if you're looking for a maestro to elevate your music and audio to the next level, look no further than Cut & Paste Generation. Let's make some beautiful music together!
