Peter Hobbs

Composer, Sound Designer

Composer and sound designer Peter Hobbs cut his musical teeth playing in Dunedin bands (eg Kitset) while studying music at Otago University — he also ran a community recording studio in war-torn Bosnia. His soundtrack credits include movie I’m Not Harry Jenson and a run of based-on-a-true-story telefilms (Jean, Abandoned, and Tangiwai - A Love Story — for which he was NZ TV Award-nominated). Hobbs has composed for TV series Rude Awakenings, Aussie reality show Highway Patrol, commercials and a variety of live performances. He runs Auckland music studio Harmonic Studio (aka Harmonic Music and Sound). 

I've always wanted to be a spaceman and/or a composer. My first record was the soundtrack to Star Wars, aged seven. It was a revelation to have the thrill of the soundtrack behind me while playing with Star Wars toys, and to learn how music can change an experience. Peter Hobbs in The NZ Herald, 12 May 2008
