Alex Jenkins (Gasserpe)
Home: Okeechobee, Florida USA
Florida Composer Alex Jenkins, aka Gasserpe, has created an exceptional library, perfect for several genres. His long soundbeds can be spooky, spacey and edgy for time travel, Sci Fi futuristic films, or psychedelic madness, epic trailer or film score music. Other music focuses on the aftermath of disasters like Darfur, Haiti, tsunamis or the evil of mankind. Alex's Middle Eastern tracks, filled with unusual SFX and music elements and the Korg drum, are tribal yet tender. His emotional music builds with cinematic tension, expressing world sorrow that rips your heart out!
