Dissolve Audio was established by Brian Lane, an Irish-born composer and sound designer. Realising a passion for music at an early age, Brian studied several instruments before diving into the world of music technology. Sensing the exciting creative opportunities offered by combining sound with the moving image, he began composing and designing sound for film. Through this work he has built up a diverse and growing network of clients and collaborators. He is currently based in Manchester, UK.

We’ve been lucky to work with Brian on two short films and he’s delivered brilliant results every time. A true collaborator, passionate, and with fantastic attention to detail; Brian is a real gem and comes highly recommended.

“Really proud to have worked with an outstanding composer in Brian Lane. His music is like a beating heart in Date Night. If you are looking for original music, I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.”

Brian Lane composed the music for Together we Stared at the Moon, a documentary I made about children living in institutions around the world. Given the sensitive subject it was great to work with a composer who knew when a lighter touch was needed. This brought a lovely subtlety to sequences and enhanced the emotional content when it was required. Brian took inspiration directly from the people and places in the film, creating a very intimate sound. I would work with him again in a heartbeat because he is so open to discussing the work, what it needs and keeps the process very collaborative.
