I get pretty attached to my work.

No matter the style or type of project, music and sound design are an essential part of modern storytelling. My main objective as a composer is to help bring each story to life by creating a distinct soundtrack that doesn't just enhance the story, but feels inseparable from it.

 


Fourteen years in four minutes. 

A short compilation of some of my favorite work including ad clips, segments from documentary and tv projects, a couple logos, a theme and some spec work. An overview, if you will. Thanks for watching.


I get to work with storytellers for a living.

Like the creative folks behind Oregon Public Broadcasting, The Los Angeles Dodgers, Audi, Bravo, Portland General Electric, OHSU Foundation, American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Luna Bar, Gold's Gym, Suzuki Motorcycle, Narrative Lab, Ducks Unlimited, US Fish & Wildlife, Fox Television and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The variety of work they do challenges me to be consistently perceptive and sensitive to a wide range of subjects. They care about their work and so do I. Here's what a few of them have said about working with me:

Catherine Stimac, Oregon Public Broadcasting:  "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."

Austin Bauer, Deutsch LA:  "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."

Jeff Gersh, Narrative Lab:  "Brian is a gifted, soulful film composer—and a pleasure to work with." 

Craig W. Cunningham, Portland General Electric:  "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!!"
