Adam Traister (b. 1986)

A passion-driven aural storyteller, my number one mission is to ignite your emotions as I transport you to a world outside of your own.

Most days you will find me composing scores to film, animation, video games, advertisements, and things of this nature.  It is my greatest love in life, as I have been enthralled by music in entertainment since I was a kid watching Star Wars and playing The Legend of Zelda.  This passion has since developed into my career.

In addition to being a composer, I am similarly creative in other music and audio related disciplines.  I have arranged music for a philharmonic orchestra, mixed sound and music for virtual reality, and supervised sound and music production on an interactive themed attraction.  More importantly, I am also proficient in sound design, an art form in itself and one that consistently proves useful when composing my music.  This combination of skills and knowledge in both sound and music routinely provokes creative decisions that lead to refreshing ideas and unprecedented results.   

I earned my B.M. from Berklee College of Music in Boston, a dual major in Film Scoring and Contemporary Writing & Production, and minor in Video Game Scoring. I also recently completed my M.F.A. in Sound Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design.  I currently reside in Los Angeles, California.
