Whatever it takes - Media Composer Grant Kirkhope

Media composer Grant Kirkhope has spent the past 20 years not just making video games music, but making a name for himself.

The games he's worked on from Golden Eye in the '90s to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom in 2017, have sold over 30 million copies. Crikey.

From the lessons and habits learned as an in-house composer, to breaking out as a freelancer in a new country: looking for opportunities, an agent and  a day off.

It may seem like a series of ‘happy accidents’ but it’s a tale of persistence, creativity and professionalism. Doing whatever it takes to get the job.
