Marvin Ayres is a British modern-classical composer/cellist/violinist and ambient producer.
During his 20+ year career, he has composed and recorded a diverse selection of minimalist albums, incorporating spatial soundscapes and psycho-acoustics and latterly 5.1 Surround Sound.
He has also produced a number of film and TV soundtracks.
