  • An emotive & intimate composing toolkit

    Step into the sound world of composer Oliver Patrice Weder with OPW, a beautifully intimate composing toolkit made up of a unique blend of melodic and percussive elements, giving you both organic, emotive instruments and shimmering electronic manipulations. Released in conjunction with the composer’s debut album of the same name, these 59 presets have been carefully recorded and curated by Oliver himself, specifically with composers and music makers in mind.

    Inspired by Oliver’s extensive travels, this distinctive collection will add character, texture and beauty to your scores. Featuring his own characterful prepared piano and a Wurlitzer 200A enhanced with effects pedals, discover atmospheric delays, tempo-synced electronics, dreamy pads, swells and textures. Add rhythm and movement with raw and treated percussive one shots and loops, or for a hint of nostalgia, choose the smoky, romantic tones of the flugelhorn.

    Oliver playing piano

    Oliver Patrice Weder's unique musicality has been heavily inspired and shaped by living and travelling through different places and cultures including Brazil, Africa and the USA, as well as his experiences making a home in various European countries.

    Oliver discovered his love of keyboards after hearing the sound of Ray Manzarek (The Doors), and spent his formative years playing classical and jazz piano in the rainy foothills of the Alps. After recording and touring across Europe with various bands including psychedelic rock band Time for T, he studied at Valencia’s Berklee College of Music where he established his passion for film music. As well as composing for the BBC, Oliver is lead composer at Spitfire Audio in London. In 2017, Oliver co-scored the feature film ‘The Haunted’ and made a vlog style series Inside the Score with Spitfire Audio, documenting the entire process — from meeting the director, to seeing the film shown at various international film festivals.

    Oliver’s deeply personal debut LP, ‘OPW’, took shape across Europe, between Switzerland, UK, Spain and Holland, where he lived and spent time writing and recording this intimate and powerful musical journey. It fuses a rich and unique blend of acoustic instruments and rhythms with electronic elements — from piano, Wurlitzer, experimental strings from the London Contemporary Orchestra, flugelhorn and drum machines through to spoon solos, occasional gritty synths and percussion found in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro — adding flavour and colour throughout.

    It has been my dream for a long time to create something like this, but only now have I felt ready to take on the challenge. With this album and sample library, I hand over my very personal diary.
