Composer Brandon Moore grew up listening to film scores and performing music in his native Arlington, Texas. In 1999 he graduated from Texas Christian University with a Bachelor of Music degree in composition. That same year he moved to Los Angeles to study film scoring professionally at the University of Southern California's Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television program. At USC, Brandon had the privilege of studying under accomplished film composers Elmer Bernstein, David Raksin and Christopher Young.
Brandon has composed a wide range of scores for a variety of film projects such as the Mexico International Film Festival winner, THE GENTLEMAN DON LA MANCHA (2004), and the Phoenix International Horror & Sci-Fi Festival winner, RAY BRADBURY'S CHRYSALIS (2009), one of three screen adaptations of the acclaimed writer's stories for which Brandon has written original music.
He's contributed a number of unique scores like his ominous and apocalyptic A PIECE OF WOOD which won praise from visual effects pioneer Douglas Trumball (2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind) at the Seattle International Science Fiction Short Film Festival in 2004. His elegiac trumpet and strings score for the war documentary RETURN TO VIETNAM helped win the film a Silver Telly Award in 2007. His score to THE TABLE was nominated for the Gold Medal for Excellence in the Best Impact of Music in a Documentary category at the Park City Film Music Festival in 2011. In 2012 Brandon composed the score for the horror/comedy series KILLER SISTERS' MIDNIGHT HOUR for Hulu.com.
Brandon recently scored the family sci-fi adventure film ALIENS ATE MY HOMEWORK for Universal based on the best-selling book series by Bruce Coville. The movie is streaming now on Netflix and is available on DVD and Blu-ray with extra features. Back Lot Music has made the soundtrack available for download on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.
Brandon’s music has played in film festivals all over the world for as long as he’s been an active composer in Hollywood. He’s currently a member of the Society of Composers and Lyricists and ASCAP. In addition to composing, Brandon has been playing classical music for over 20 years and has enjoyed performing as a trombonist in orchestras around Los Angeles.
