Bio

Alan started with piano and accordion at a very young age, eventually switching to drums. Playing drums and percussion professionally through-out his career, Alan always kept a piano close by. Along the way, he picked up guitar and starting writing and composing in earnest on both instruments.

Alan was also drawn to the synthesizer world and started to record and produce music in his own studio. Writing included piano and acoustic guitar compositions and various electronic music. While developing a fully equipped acoustic and electronic studio, Alan applied outbound synthesizers along with software plug-ins. to create a wide range of music including: Soundtrack, Symphonic and Electronica.

Writing, recording and producing all his own music - he has released countless albums and singles in varying genres. Although interested and capable in writing in many forms, Alan’s music started to be identified as something that would go well with a movie. This led to a strong interested and desire to focus on soundtrack compositions. From cues, to incidental, underscore to major themes along with sound-design with all elements of a film score.

Writing for video, commercial and music videos, were some of his first projects. Now scoring for films - has become his primary focus. Composing interests also include TV, Trailers, Video Gaming, Dance and specialized projects as well. 

Alan enjoys composing in most any form but loves writing for the visual medium.  Being an avid film/tv buff, hearing and being able to create music to support a story and convey the emotional elements of a film and scene is wonderfully satisfying.
