Steve Wilson's GhostWriter
WHY GHOSTWRITER? In music, a Ghostwriter is a composer who writes musical pieces or makes other contributions that are officially credited to another person. The concept of Ghostwriting (or "ghosting") goes back centuries, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a well known composer paid to ghostwrite music for wealthy patrons. The practice is controversial as typically the Ghostwriter is not credited, but it's widely practiced in our industry, particularly in the creation of film and television soundtracks. We feel it is an appropriate name for this project as Steven will be bringing his vast sound design and production experience to your music, but will probably never meet you, and as such is your Ghostwriter.
