Hollywood-based composer and sound designer Bryan Barcinas goes far beyond the traditional and aims to tell inspiring stories through the elegant use of sound.
Bryan first discovered his love for music in multimedia platforms with his obsession with movies and videogames growing up. After a busy childhood spent tinkering with musical instruments, he went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Music in Film Score and Media Writing as a Composition Scholar at California State University Northridge, rated as one of the best film score composition universities in the world. There he worked on numerous award-winning projects and senior theses for film festivals at USC and UCLA. Bryan was also the recipient of the 2016 Igor Paltsev Scholarship Award awarded to emerging composers who demonstrate the strongest potential. His works have premiered in international film festivals in Asia, Australia, and America.
Having studied under the tutelage of orchestrators Neal Desby (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Benoit Grey (Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood), Bryan has garnered a plethora of experience producing for a variety of genres and media outlets and strives to improve his craft. He has also worked with Justin Moshkevich of Igloo Music Studios in Burbank, a studio known for mixing and engineering work in movies like Kick-Ass and Birdman.
Through sound design, composition, and orchestration, he is able to take any story and transcend the narrative to greater meaning. His focus lies on analyzing the story's emotional and theoretical cues, in which then leads him to the creative space where he can begin masterfully crafting the sound and music
