About Me

My name is Will Helliwell and I’m a composer and Python developer. I use music to help bring projects to life and to create things that never existed before. I write code to do the same thing but in a much more nerdy way. Growing up in the 90s I enjoyed playing on classic consoles like the SNES, Gameboy and PS1. I played a lot of different instruments throughout my childhood; the euphonium being the strangest and least cool one. I picked up an electric guitar in my teens and that’s all I could think about for the next 10 years. My passion for music and video games grew side by side until, in my 20s, I decided I wanted to make music for games.

Life is all about creativity and music is that creative outlet for me. I use my tech background to help me write and experiment with new music and to build communication services (need some way to pay the mortgage!) I also host and produce a game music podcast called ComposerCast (currently on hold). And on top of that, I’ve always got a number of personal projects on the go. The world of video games and media is always exciting and evolving which inspires me to find new ways of producing music. I hope to create something that hasn’t been done before that people will enjoy and remember.
