About us

Turning Studios is a music composition and production house with facilities in Sydney, Los Angeles and New York.  Taking a multi-disciplinary approach, our work can be seen in international brand commercials, the world's biggest cinema and streaming releases, and in theatre.


Elliott Wheeler

Elliott is a Composer, producer and Turning Studios founder and excels at the pressurized heights where contemporary music and film fuse.  He’s as adept at bringing diverse artists – from Nas to Bryan Ferry – into sync with the complex demands of music-driven visual tours de force, as he is working on period needle drops and mixes, or composing traditional dramatic scores.

Wheeler has a unique ability to bring disparate personalities, talents, eras and idioms into coherence with an overall vision. That’s been honed in his work as composer and executive music producer with Baz Luhrmann – most notably on the genre- and era-defying The Great Gatsby, and Netflix sensation The Get Down, as well as projects such the Ship Song Project for the Sydney Opera House.

Elliott is the recipient of countless international screen composition awards and is now based between Los Angeles, New York and Sydney.
