Its been a pleasure to work with Rob over a series of projects. Rob always quickly grasps what is needed for each project, producing music that is perfectly suited to the individual stories. He’s very gifted at what he does and its always a pleasure working with him on a project.

Rob was an absolute pleasure to work with on the music composition for TAC’s Toward Zero Campaign. He took on our brief and came straight back with a track that required very little feedback. Very enjoyable to work with and I look forward to our next collaboration.
— Emma Johnson (Senior Producer, Clemenger)
Rob is a talented composer who is instinctive and extremely capable. Rob produced the music for our 8 part series “In the making”. He intuitively composed pieces that set the tone and mood of the series. His compositions elevated the overall production value of the series and we have received lots of overwhelmingly positive feedback. Colleagues of ours have described his music as “astonishing” and “beautiful” - we would have to agree. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have worked with him and we look forward to working with him on future projects”
— Katrina Channells & Bridget O'Shea (Director & Producer, Yarn)
There is something understated but raw about Rob’s music that i love. He’s always on point and brings a huge amount to a film’s mood and story.

Rob Law has an amazing ability to perfectly convey the mood and emotion of a scene. His music is both beautiful and powerful! Rob has been great to work with and we look forward to working with him in the future

MUSIC

Rob Law is a multi-instrumentalist musician/composer with 20 years experience in the music industry. Having spent many years performing in a wide variety of settings and genres across Australia and overseas, Rob now concentrates on writing music for screen (film/TV, online advertising and social and environmental campaigns and documentaries).

Rob has composed for advertising campaigns and branded content in Australia, the UK and the USA including brands such as Apple, Phillips, Black Diamond, Rapha, Trenery, and La Mer. He has also composed music for Australian agencies Clemenger BBDO and Cummins and Partners on TV commercials for Tourism Victoria, Tourism WA, and TAC.

In 2003, Rob graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the Victorian College of the Arts. After the intensive boot camp of the VCA, Rob travelled widely, developing a keen interest in world music, and collecting and learning to play instruments from different cultures around the world. This exposure to different sounds and styles is evident in Rob's highly textural, layered compositions.

For eight years, Rob worked closely with singer songwriter Jess Ribeiro, releasing a number of award winning albums with their band the Bone Collectors. The band were a finalist in the Australian Music Prize in 2013, the duo's 2012 album My Little River also won ABC Radio National Album of the Year and an Australian Independent Records Association Award for Best Country Album 2012.

Robs main passion is writing music for screen and is currently working on a number of short films and documentaries. He loves to collaborate with directors and understands the importance of a well composed score to transform a film and help to enhance the tone and mood. He likes the challenge of applying the right type of music to bring out the most from a scene and to help realise a directors vision. 

WOOD

Rob has a deep rooted love and passion for designing and making bespoke furniture. He learnt the importance and beauty of good design at an early age from sitting alongside his architect father's drawing board. Imbued with a strong sense of environmental ethics, he strives to make his creations timeless and long lasting, and where possible uses recycled timbers and natural finishes. Having learnt a lot from years of mistakes and bad joinery, Rob also spent two years learning from Alastair Boell at the Melbourne Guild of Fine Woodworking. Rob believes nothing is as satisfying and good for the soul as working up old worn out timbers into new creations and giving them new life.
