Gary Gunn is a composer/producer most noted for his genre-defying musical aesthetic and forward-thinking application of sound. This Washington D.C. native has collaborated on cutting-edge, interactive installations at TED, SXSW, Moogfest and Palais de Tokyo. He has also composed original soundtracks for critically heralded art installations in Hong Kong, Beijing and Moscow and has been tapped by brands such as Sonos, Nike and NBC/Universal for his singular sonic vision.
Gary has a budding and enviable resume scoring award-winning films—including official selections at Sundance, Tribeca and Cannes film festivals—and has created original music for TV series including Showtime’s Emmy-nominated Sleeper Cell and AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead. He has also been featured in The Wall Street Journal as a leading music curator, having provided soundtracks to millions through various outlets including Songza, RISD and Google.
From his signature Musical Portraits (instrumental works that sonically interpret persona), to transcribing a character’s emotional journey into score, to curating the soundtracks to your life, Gary has defied trends, stayed true and carved out an authentic path to call his own. Through his musical ability, Gunn taps into his acute sensitivity of beings to allow us to see each other in variant form.
