MODWHEEL is David Donaldson and Steve Roche.
With Janet Roddick we have a composing partnership and recording studio, Plan 9, creating music for over 25 years.
As Plan 9 we have just completed our 20th feature film score in addition to working on the last 9 of Peter Jacksons' movies in varying capacities. Our work for Peter includes full scoring as well as musical sound design, and in collaboration with long time friend and colleague David Long for the LOTR and Hobbit films, the writing and performing of "cultural" music.
Plan 9 have been nominated for and won numerous film and TV awards both in New Zealand and internationally.
David and Steve also release their own music under the name Thrashing Marlin having released 4 albums to date.
Creating new sounds and distinctive Virtual instruments (often from their large musical instrument collection) has always been a fascinating part of Plan 9's work and MODWHEEL was set up to further this exploration and to make the best of these instruments available to other composers and musicians.
