Why Ron Kristy?



First of all, listen to the reel.  You can start with “Essential Ron Kristy.” Ron believes that music is the deepest expression of the soul.  Great music enhances and underscores the emotions of the visuals.  Even in modern “loop-based” music, you should be able to feel the depth and the passion of the composer. It’s also nice to know that you’re dealing with a seasoned professional, and that your project will come in on time, on budget.  Please feel free to check out what Ron’s clients have to say about his music and his way of working – and please feel free to contact any of them.
