Music for storytellers


IMG_4958 (1).jpg

I can help you tell it.

Filmmakers, agencies, networks, and organizations have been trusting me to help tell their stories since 2001. As a music composer and post audio producer, I value that trust, and aim to create scores and soundtracks that not only support their stories, but seem inseparable from them. That means understanding the material, knowing the objectives, and engaging the audience. It means choosing the right palette. And it means going beyond the limits of licensing, by creating dynamic scores and soundtracks that follow shifts, enhance detail, and are distinct without being distracting.

"Brian is a gifted, soulful film composer ā€” and a pleasure to work with."

Jeff Gersh, Narrative Lab

"We hired Brian and Iā€™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!!"

Craig W. Cunningham, Portland General Electric
