Greg has always been a talented musician and composer who follows his own path. He has an excellent handle on atmospheric, dramatic, and suspense music as well as traditional melodic themes. He is always pushing the envelope with experimental ideas that others wish they had thought of with high cinematic appeal. His work is truly impressive and I have enjoyed knowing and working with him.

I’ve worked with Greg for more than ten years and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He’s very fast, he gives you what you need, he’s a very creative musician, and he knows his stuff. I use him every chance I get!

Greg is one of the fastest and most talented musicians I’ve ever worked with, and his speed is never at the expense of the work or creativity. He delivers exactly what you need even when you can’t put into words what you want.
“Big Bowling Ball” (Academy-Award nominated live action short)
“Famous Agoraphobic Woman Tells All” (2001 release)
Gregory did a fantastic job on the indie feature “Complicity.” His score is a marvel of spare and chilling sound.
Greg Ives is a wonderfully inventive composer who is incredibly sensitive to matching music to film in order to bring out the emotional essence of a given scene or sequence of shots. His music is always original, and his range is amazing when it comes to composing the right type of music for any given situation. He is a joy to work with and to be around, even under the most difficult of circumstances. Greg is a composer whose star will rise high if given the right opportunities to showcase his talents. And you can quote me on this!!!

Greg is a great talent and those talents are all-inclusive. He will take a project from conception all the way through post – working with him is one-stop shopping! Most importantly, he does what he says he’s going to do and that’s worth a lot in Hollywood.
