WELCOME TO ICARUS MUSIC


Partners Eddie Freeman and Marta Victoria  .  Studio 2002

For over a decade, great folks have been hiring us to add scores to their films, tv projects and venues. Even now, somewhere in the world, an Icarus Music cue is playing. Don’t take our word for it.

Cool, right? Yes, except… that’s so one-directional. You hear us, but we don’t hear you.

An Invitation

So we overhauled this site to invite dialogue.

Please… post music comments, tweet or facebook us?

Go ahead and e-mail or call us? Ask questions, or share what you think! We’ll respond.

We’re totally listening.
