The Lost Palace

The Composer

Ashraf Hanif

Ash is a composer and multi-instrumentalist based in London. 

Informed by his post-rock and metal background, Hanif first started composing with guitar effects and pedals to create larger soundscapes and ambient tones.

Hanif’s love for sound manipulation inspired him to incorporate synthesisers and samplers into his music. Utilising a mixture of hardware and software for his compositions, he blends neo-classical ideas and electronic practices with his more alternative musical origins. The result is diverse, intimate and sonically rich.
