Our guest judge, Cyrus Reynolds , Los Angeles-based Artist and Producer Cyrus Reynolds leans heavily towards the cinematic and dramatic. A classically trained composer (Royal Academy of Music) turned electronic sound designer (Chance the Rapper, Kanye, Justin Timberlake), he draws his own sound from familiar textures and twists them into new sonic landscapes, finally holding them together by threads of interwoven narratives and personal lyrics.
