CMDess music has been featured throughout the television landscape on countless hit shows and documentaries.

CM was raised in radio stations by his mother (a broadcast radio announcer) but didn't take up interest in creating music until his teen years. His father and grandfather were both musically inclined and performed multiple instruments. CM has been grinding tone, texture and time together for over 17 years. Striving to deliver an optimal listening experience in every production, considering every little detail and happenstance of the music cultivation process.

Classical, Contemporary / Technological, Folk, Spiritual, Fantasy, Urban, and Rock music form the navigational blueprint of the CMDess production approach. CM has an up-close relationship with each process in song and cue development and aims to keep pace with design trends and sound innovation. He performs all the instruments in his pieces as well as produces, arranges, notates, and mixes his material with the help of world class instrument and plug-in and application developers such as Native-Instruments and SoundsOnline.

His first major industry breakthrough came at age 14 when a Symphonic Orchestra chose one of his orchestral compositions for public performance. After being inspired by the work of Seal, he decided to delve deeper into the technological, tool-centric world of contemporary music. CM worked on both sample loop development as well as Sound Design on professional applications for Ueberschall Sample Service GmbH. He has also worked with award winning composers and absorbed critical concepts for making music tailored to visuals. This from-the-ground-up exposure offers insights into the compositional and creative process which give his music a distinct signature quality.
