XGYPSY - Tony Mitchell - warts and all …

“After riding around the block a few thousand times with various bands and artists of all different shapes, sizes and egos, it was time to take a different direction.

In 2004 I came off the road and formed XGypsy with my wife Dawn, specialising in music for Film, TV and Media. Having a huge back catalogue of original material wasn’t enough. To do this, I had to fine tune myself as a composer by orchestration. I had to get inside the scenario to create the perfect piece to fit”.

“At first, I worked to storyboards from independent film companies and did this for free just for the experience, which proved to be invaluable. I found out that I was more than qualified to do this and took it to the next level. Although, to an extent, soundtracks have to be contrived, I think of myself edgier, darker and more dynamic than the normal and love to create on demand, if need be”.

“Even though I love creating high energy, metal riffs that would speed through any action scene, I also like the earthiness of the acoustic guitar, which lends itself to a more honest, personal theme. Orchestration and choirs pieces are what I am requested to create the most. I love to do this, especially when blended with tribal or war drums and makes for the ultimate blockbuster or trailer”.

“Those who know me know I am a huge fan of the horror and dark fantasy genre and get great satisfaction out of composing for this field. If I have a forte, I would say dark western or Latin American films, ranging from 60s Ennio Morricone to present day composers. I am a huge fan of Tarantino too, who is a perfect template for a vast amount of my music. He inspired my 2010 concept album, Kingdom of Deadmen’s Black Rhapsody & 2013 follow up album "My soul to take", of which, I am very proud of and have people pitching this for a movie in the US”.

“Now fully established, not only am I passionate in what I do, I look to the next challenge I am always looking to better what I have already achieved”.

"Those who know me, know I have to have things done right, and won’t take “that’ll do!” as an option -  I suppose that I have not gained many friends this way. I have been criticised for living like a recluse when writing and shutting myself off from the rest of the world, but this is how I work and always have".

"In order to create the right composition, you really have to be it! I am my own worse critic but this is me".

 "This is who I am … this is what I do … MY GIFT, MY CURSE"!
