Ken has been active in the music production business since early 2000. After graduating from Pulse Recording college he set up his own recording studio where his clients included Jon Bon Jovi, Cathy Davey, Mundy, Celine Dion, The Blizzards, Moya Brennan, Juno Falls, Jerry Fish and David Kitt. Ken has also worked with EMI and Warner records developing artists.
He released three critically acclaimed albums under the name "AUTAMATA". This original and innovative music caught the attention of TV/FILM executives around the world and he has worked on adverts, films and TV shows for a broad cross section of clients including Mitsubishi North America, Kaiser Permanente Healthcare USA, Yoplait, Birds Eye, 3 Mobile, Middlesex Bank, Greenflag, C.S.I. Miami, MTV, Setanta Sports, Channel 4 and RTE.
He has also created music for the Golden Globe nominated film Match Point as well as Tara Road, Standing Still, Swing State, Bickford Bchmeckler's Cool Ideas, The Actor's, Parked and Saltwater.
In the past year Ken produced and recorded the gold selling album "Doing Their Thing" for the Dublin Gospel Choir along with hotly tipped indie acts Hoarsebox, Dirty Epics and The Danger is, as well as releasing a new album of his own original compositions under the name WE SAW HEAVEN.
He is currently putting the finishing touches to the fourth Autamata album which will be released later this year.
Aside from all of this production work he has toured extensively with Autamata, runs his own record label, creates his own websites, music videos and album artwork.
Ken is running a DIY artist development week long workshop in various venues around Dublin in July. Check out www.musicacademy360.com for more info.
