TESTIMONIALS

"Chrysoulla was the incredible composer and sound designer for our short film. She is an enthusiastic, charming and professional artist through every aspect of her work. Chrysoulla has a wonderful work ethic and imaginative creativity, utilising her surrounds to create immersive composition. Our collaboration with Chrysoulla during the difficult circumstances surrounding the 2020 pandemic exceeded our expectations and cemented our decision to wanting to work with Chrysoulla on many projects to come. Her clear communication, versatility and accommodating nature made the process an incredible experience. ARACOURT recommends Chrysoulla for any project requiring sound design and composition, and we look forward to our next collaboration in the near future."

"Chrysoulla is an exceptionally talented and intuitive composer with great versatility and range. In a tight turnaround, she rigorously crafted a powerful, terrifying score for our horror short, Barnacle Face. Finding creative common-ground was easy and exciting due to her clarity of communication and firm grasp of the relationships between music, sound and picture. I very much recommend Chrysoulla for her musical prowess for screen and stage composition. It was a privilege and joy to work with her."
