We're pleased to be featuring the work of many new freelance writers on our website, and in coming weeks we'd like to help you get to know some of them better. Today, meet Garrett Tiedemann of Eagan, Minnesota.

Trained classically in guitar, Garrett quickly transitioned to other instruments, with an especial fondness for the realms of percussion, and eventual composing for film — which coincided with the beginnings of a career in filmmaking. For more than a decade he has experimented with the confines of film and sound via the multimedia lab CyNar Pictures and its record label American Residue Records. In addition to short and feature filmmaking he has also directed countless music videos and written avidly about the importance of sound and music in film and television.
