Soundtrack Music

As well as producing/engineering other people's music, I also write and produce my own songs and music. Here's a selection of various pieces of music I've composed for different short films over the years.  Click here to see all my music videos on YouTube.

The Copy Girl

Composed & produced by Mark Hughes at Meinzi Music (c) 2015.

Originally composed in 2004 for a cute little short film called The Copy Girl, written & directed by Rebecca Stegh - I liked this piece so much I decided to remix and rearrange it to bring it into the year 2015.

Unfortunately the sample of the photocopier - which originally formed the basis of the main rhythm of the first version - didn't make it into the new mix. But its spirit lives on in the piano figure in this playful slice of Warner Bros-inspired latin music.


Tom Waits for No-One


Composed & produced by Mark Hughes at Meinzi Music (c) 2015.

Originally composed for an independent short film by Deane Robb called Rule of Thirds, could this be the best Tom Waits track he never recorded?  You be the judge!


Porta-Shed

Composed & produced by Mark Hughes at Meinzi Music (c) 2015.

Another piece composed for Deane Robb's short film Rule of Thirds, this one is meant to evoke Portishead's signature moody, suspenseful sound.


Jefferson's Airplane

Composed & produced by Mark Hughes at Meinzi Music (c) 2015

The third and final piece composed for Rule of Thirds, this is fairly self-explanatory.
A retro 60's kinda vibe for this one.

Scooby destination anyone?


Car Chase

Composed & produced by Mark Hughes at Meinzi Music (c) 2015

Originally composed in 2006 for independent short film, Flush - written & directed by Paul Hughes. I plan to to tweak and remix this track at some point, largely to make the rhythm parts sound a bit more...

...but in the meantime here it is in all its 70s cop show-vibe glory!


Fast Lane - Credits Medley

Fast Lane - Party Song

Composed & produced by Mark Hughes at Meinzi Music (c) 2015
