Hello! I'm Erik Gullikson. Raised in Chicago, now living in Belgooly, Ireland.

I write music everyday. I live to create. Expression through music and sound is my true passion. I will go there every time, working with you to deliver strong and original results.  Using a wide variety of real instruments, software, sound shaping tools, and curiosities as a sonic palette, everything is an option. With my musical roots primarily in jazz, I appreciate that strong thematic melody and the accompanying harmony are paramount.  However, I also firmly embrace modern tools and recognize a very unique sound can be as thematic as a melody.  My goal is to arrive at that perfect balance to suit the needs of your project, while always injecting magic and soul.
