Hey everybody,

Nick Norton here, music doctor.

I do a lot of different things in music and sound. One has to diversify to make a living as an artist! Fortunately I love and care deeply about all of my activities, because I hear and feel them all as expressions of the same passion.

As it turns out, communicating this effectively requires a whole website. You can scroll down a little to learn about what I do, scroll down a little more to learn about me, and scroll down a little past that to get in touch.

Here are some things I do:

As a composer,

I write music for everything from synthesizers to symphony orchestras, field recordings to fuzzed out guitars. I also dig performing with electronics.


As a music editor,

I do the heavy lifting when it comes to making music work with film, helping directors and composers realize their musical dreams.


As a sound editor,

I make visual media sound more real than real, cutting and designing dialogue, sound effects, backgrounds, and foley to make your project sparkle.


Of course this list is by no means exhaustive. I owned a high fidelity live sound company prior to the pandemic, teach music technology at Santa Monica College, and have recently gotten back into classical recording. If you've got a project you want to work on together, or need a hand with something musical, hit me up using the contact form at the bottom of the page.

A little bit about me

I grew up playing guitar in punk bands and saxophone in school bands and singing in choirs. I went to college — rather a lot of it — to be a composer, eventually earning my PhD from UC Santa Barbara after an MMus from King's College London and a double BA cum laude in music and political theory from UCSD.

In school I got pretty into music technology and recording studio work, and that has enabled me to develop a rewarding and varied career in post production sound. A life-long passion for cinema has me overjoyed to be working as a music editor, sound editor, and rerecording mixer on really interesting projects. And I spent some time in live sound before getting into post.

In music making, I find live performance insanely rewarding. I perform as a guitarist and electronic musician on my own and with bands, and love to write music for other people to perform as well. My album Music For Sunsets is available on all of the major platforms. You can check out my music on Spotify and bandcamp.
