BRIAN SUSSMAN MUSIC

WHAT’S YOUR STORY?

I can help you tell it.

Filmmakers, agencies, and organizations have been trusting me to help tell their stories since 2001. As a composer and collaborator, I value that trust, and aim to create scores and soundtracks that not only support their stories, but seem inseparable from them. 

 
 
 

What’s the score?

 

Whether it’s thirty seconds or thirty minutes, I approach every project with the same set of personal goals. Illuminate detail. Be understated. Be distinct but not distracting. Be mindful of the objectives and the audience. And always serve the story, even if that means choosing silence.

"Brian is a gifted, soulful film composer — and a pleasure to work with."

Jeff Gersh, Narrative Lab

"We hired Brian and I’m glad we did. From the onset he understood the direction we were taking and worked with us to realize our vision. His music brought the subject matter to life for viewers and the process was symbiotic and seamless."

Catherine Stimac, Oregon Public Broadcasting

"I have hired Brian to compose original tracks for a number of commercials and corporate videos over the past five years, and each time I have the same reaction: his music just 'fits.' I recommend him to anyone looking for a composer who can bring a range of creative ideas to the table. He is a great collaborator, and willing to do whatever it takes to make each project shine."

Austin Bauer, Deutsch LA

"I don't always have an opportunity to use original music, but when I do, I call Brian. Every time we've worked together I've been amazed at how he sees the images I've put together and brings them to life with his music and sound design. Plus, he's a heck of a nice guy to work with!!"
