About

Brian “Tweex” Arnold broke out into the scene in late 2003 when he was introduced to his first piece of music software.  Since then, he has developed his skills as a composer, programmer, sound designer, musician, and DJ.  He is currently located in Atlanta, Georgia where he continues honing his craft of music composition and sound design for all types of media.

His initial classical knowledge was the starting point for his compositional career, and his involvement with the OverClocked Remix community has taught him the process of sonic manipulation.  He has spent the last 6 years in the pursuit of mastering the skill.

Tweex graduated from the University of Georgia in 2008 with a degree in Theatre and Film Studies.  He produced and created custom Music and Sound Design for more than a dozen theatre and film productions, including the world-wide release of “War of the Worlds”, a modern adaptation of the classic story by H.G. Wells.

Since his studies in college, Tweex has composed music and sound design for national advertising campaigns including Delta, Coca-Cola, Nike, Sprint, Wrangler, and others.  He has also worked on numerous award winning theatre, radio, video game, and film productions.

When he is not crafting custom music and sound design, Tweex can be found working for Gaming Union as the Podcast Producer, in house Sound Designer and Musical Composer, and Sonic Brand Manager.
