Mel Elias has transitioned from a life as a corporate executive to become the principal composer and founder of Reverse Bird.    Mel has since written and produced music and commercial songs both at his time at Wava Studios, and here at Reverse Bird.  He currently focuses on writing film scores and orchestral music.

Mel's primary instrument is the piano and he can write in multiple genres - from short cues to commercial songs to epic fully orchestrated symphonic works. His preferred style is harmonically rich modern classical music, new romanticism as well as contemporary minimalism.   Best described as a post minimalist composer, he also has a passion for analog subtractive synths (Eurorack and 5U formats).
