Rotem Hecht - Film and game composer, Sound designer, arranger, producer...

I got an email introduction from Rotem Hecht, a young Israeli composer a while ago and slowly, bit by bit (not being proficient in Hebrew myself!) I've been piecing together something to post about him.

Rotem Hecht
Film and game composer
Sound designer, arranger, producer...

TEL AVIV - Rotem Hecht is a composer, arranger, music producer, sound editor (at Sound Post Frodkshin) and more - everything to do with creating music, sound design and recordings. He has worked as a Composer and Sound Editor on TV series, movies, video games, commercials, plays and shows and today owns  his own business under the names RH Studio and Theta Music .

Rotem was born in a kibbutz in the north near the Lebanese border, where the age of eight he started to play the piano and quickly fell into the world of music. He began arranging compositions for various musical instruments in the sixth grade and at age 13 he was playing jazz, Beatles, European classical music and had started to learn music theory. He also played in 3 different bands.

His stage career began at age 16, when he started to perform in Israel with singing groups as a pianist even as he was still learning music in high school. By age 18, he'd learned to play the piano and managed to learn the guitar, drums, saxophone, clarinet, accordion, working with synthesizers and Skoonsrim. "I'm not bragging," he says, "I just loved to play."

At 18 he moved to Tel Aviv, "the center of things." Once settled in, he continued to play with various artists and singers and began recording. "At 22 I had my eye on a new synthesizer out and hop!!! I found myself with a whole studio equipment. (It's addictive)," he says.

He began to compose his own music. "Here and there things went and I found myself working for a living at it mainly as a television composer and arranging songs artists. While working I also do mixing, editing, sound post Frodkshin and more and more and more ...." Diversity is the salvation of every creative freelancer.

His client list includes the Luli and Hop! Channels (Israel), Hasboro (USA), Microsoft (India), Juicylime Productions (Portugal) and KAL Airlines (Israel) among many others.

Happy Freuds - Echo Of Sounds
Independent: May 31, 2019
Stream/Buy on Bandcamp
Stream it on Spotify

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
