Gary Tarn

Gary Tarn is a self-taught musician and film-maker, born in London, England. He started to play and write music aged 7, was performing in a punk band by 14, and by his 20's was an accomplished producer and multi instrumentalist. He became captivated by the music of Indonesia, Africa and India, and studied these, alongside the work of European orchestral composers. A passion for film led to a career as a media composer, and it was a natural progression to start to shoot images of his own.

In 1999 he met the blind author Hugues de Montalembert, who agreed to collaborate on a film project. The result, "Black Sun", Tarn's debut feature-length film, was nominated for a BAFTA award in 2007
