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, Marmoset Music, American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, UCLA, Luna Bar, Nature's Recipe, Gold's Gym, Suzuki Motorcycle, Narrative Lab, Ducks Unlimited, US Fish & Wildlife, Fox Television, EVE, Lightmotive Films 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:
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!!"
