The ‘Music of the Mysterious Few’ offers lengthy arrangements filled with endless ebbs & flows, putting maximum creativity and control in the hands of the film maker. Throughout the album sustained textured backdrops give way to soaring orchestral climaxes leaving the listener with a sense of wonder, intrigue and occasionally heartache.
Josh Fuhrmeister is an Australian based composer, producer and performer. His diverse style fuses rich acoustic instrumentation with wistful, nostalgic textures emphasising layered guitars (see Dawn Comes Slow and Awaken) and haunting piano arrangements (see Raindrops and Welcome Home).
His works have been commissioned by international organisations such as World Vision and Quintis Sandalwood Album and have featured in short films narrated by sports icons Daniel Ricciardo and Adam Gilchrist.
Not solely a composer/producer, Fuhrmeister has an extensive performance background as a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist. He has performed across the globe with artists such as The Paper Kites (2016 US/Canada Tour), Greta Salome (Sigur Ros, Eurovision), Ian Cooper (Tommy Emmanuel, James Morrison) and Kym Purling (Nat Cole, Broadway) and has shared stages as large as Montreal’s Osheaga Music Festival and Ottawa BluesFest with artists such as Radiohead, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Duran Duran, The Killers, Ryan Adams, Haim and Death Cab For Cutie.
Currently he can be seen on stage in Melbourne, Australia with performance poet Joel McKerrow, singer/songwriter Libby Steel and three-piece New Orleans-funk outfit The Crave.
