Sean Beavan

COMPOSER/SOUND DESIGNER/ENGINEER

Producer/Writer/Mixer Sean Beavan’s credibility for sonic artistry in industrial and metal is legendary. He has worked with some of it’s most influential juggernauts, such as NINE INCH NAILS, MARILYN MANSON, SLAYER, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, PUSCIFER, FEOTUS and GUNS N ROSES.

With a knack for evoking emotion, the visual and voyeuristic quality of his critically acclaimed trip-hop band, 8mm, has led to 80% of their catalog being licensed to film and television.

Renown for his ability to translate ideas into sound, it is no surprise how quickly he is becoming popular with filmmakers through word of mouth and reputation.
