CINEMATIC MUSIC COMPOSER
Emilia Takayama is a Helsinki / Askola -based cinematic composer and producer and one of the creatives within the new producer roster under the management of Katariina Sorsa.
Emilia is planning to release her trailer sync EP later this year alongside with her debut album.
She has studied in the International Film Music Mentorship program "Momentum" (Los Angeles). She has also produced and composed music for local and international collaborations and immersive sound art works.
Emilia is very much inspired by cinematic & epic sceneries when making music - you can often hear the sounds of piano with clouds of pulsating, swirling harmonic elements & organic instruments, fused with electronic synths & percussions.
