About Us

WindWater Productions

WindWater Productions creates soundtracks for film, television, theatre, and everyday life that combine the organic feel and chemistry of live musical performance with state-of-the-art audio production. The WindWater team was founded by David Belmont and percussionist-composer Josh Neretin.

Their premiere instrumental effort, WindWater Excursions, spent 8 months on the New Age Voice Top 100 Airplay List and was in heavy rotation on the syndicated radio program Echoes in 2000-1.

David and Josh collaborated on the score for the critically acclaimed art film Nothing Really Happens (Castillo Productions, 2003).
