Ian Gilchrist is a composer and multi-instrumentalist in Liverpool, playing piano and keyboards, flute, saxophones, recorders, Celtic whistles, acoustic guitar, mandolin and double bass.

Working in a professional level Mac Pro based home studio using virtual and live instruments, his musical background encompasses classical styles through folk to jazz, rock and EDM, using sound design to create hybrid styles and effects where required.  Ian is currently studying a MFA in Professional Composition and Orchestration through ThinkSpace Education accredited by Chichester University.

He is a keen cross genre improviser and carries that creativity over into his writing. The story telling nature of his music is emotionally rich and nuanced, and ideally suited to complement the moving image, drama and dance.

As well as playing double bass in local orchestras, Ian performs as a jazz saxophonist as well as providing eclectic music at various functions in duet with his cellist wife Lucy under the name Jazmania.

His previous involvement with the caring professions has also given him an interest in some aspects of music therapy, particularly in mental and emotional trauma.
