Gregory Tan (or Greg for short) is a music composer and arranger for Film, TV and other forms of multimedia.
His compositions fall somewhere between the larger than life orchestral works of Thomas Bergersen (Two Steps From Hell) and the uplifting spirit of Christoffer Franzen of Lights & Motion's melodious cinematic post-rock.
His most memorable encounter with music stems from the time he heard Vivaldi's Four Seasons playing through his parent's home stereo. At 6 years of age, he begged them for violin lessons and proceeded to complete the ABRSM syllabus. At 16, when a classmate brought a guitar to school, Greg was mesmerised with the instrument's capabilities and picked it up not long after. He has not put it down since and went on to obtain a Specialist Certificate from Berklee College of Music (Online) in the genres of Blues, Jazz and Rock while in the midst of completing a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Melbourne in Political Science and Sociology.
Greg professes to be a lifelong student of the beautiful mystery that is music. He has a deep interest in the fields of music technology and musicology and thus spends huge amounts of time researching on the impact modern technology has had on the creative developmental process in humans.
He loves God and his family very much.
He also confesses to drinking too much coffee and is a proud alumni of Anglo-Chinese School.
