A SOUND APPOINTMENT FOR MACHINE.
19 January 2022

One-stop audio shop Machine have announced Brice Cagan as their new head of music.

As a composer, Cagan has scored many high-profiles commercials over the years, as well as movie and video game trailers. So, what does he hope to achieve in his new gig?

"We now have opportunities to integrate post-production in a creative and streamlined way," Cagan says. "The talent at Machine is amazing and their attitude makes working here an absolute pleasure. It's incredibly exciting to have such high-calibre sound design and music working together under one roof."


Brice brings a wealth of experience to the team, along with intuition and enthusiasm.

 ”

The move also sees Cagan swap Los Angeles for London, with Machine executive producer Matej Oreskovic welcoming him at the door: "Brice's composition skills, versatility and music knowledge are a rare find. We couldn't be more thrilled to welcome him into the Machine family."

Head of production Louise Baker adds: "Brice brings a wealth of experience to the team, along with intuition and enthusiasm - we are excited to build our music composition offering with him."
