FM-Film & Music Artist Platform
Though often involved with soundtrack projects, Chestermans’ roots are in rock bands and electronic sound manipulation. In the 90’s & 00’s Lushburger, Sudersuk and Audible3 all made releases and performances.

Alongside this he worked with film-maker Florian Habicht, composing for Spookers, Love Story, Land of the Long White Cloud, Rubbings From a Live Man, Kaikohe Demolition, Woodenhead and Liebestraume. There are soundtrack albums for Woodenhead and Spookers which Chesterman produced. He also did a bunch of theatre soundtracks, most notably for Lemi Ponifasio’s MAU company.

Current music projects include Jean’s Piano (an hour of piano music), available on cassette/Bandcamp care of Expert Sleepers, and Woodenhead: Reimagined, a compilation of songs inspired by the film music of Woodenhead. This is available on a double vinyl LP.

Based in New Zealand (Wellington), he combines composition and music with work for RadioNZ and freelance Podcast producers.
