Los Angeles-based composer Scott Tang began writing music at the age of 9, received his B.A. in Music from UC Berkeley, and embarked on a musical journey that has crossed cultures and genres. He is passionate about creating unique musical identities for films, drawing from a wide range of musical influences, from late 19th-century classical, American and Chinese folk, Japanese animated film scores and ambient electronic music.
His most recent indie feature “Rag Doll” was submitted to the Sundance Film Festival and employs a combination of hybrid scoring, synthesizers and sound design. He also co-composed the score for “Alternate Ego,” which was entered into the HBO Asian Pacific Visionaries Short Film competition. He is currently working with Gadget-Bot Productions on their in-development science fiction animated series “Kaidro: The Awakening.” The music for “Kaidro” blends Western orchestral arrangements with ambient soundscapes and Asian/Middle Eastern instrumentation.
Whether living in a Buddhist temple to learn about the Hong Kong music scene or performing at coffee shops and organizing hip hop shows, Scott has been witness time and again to the power of music, and has worked hard to distill and unify his experiences into a compelling musical language. Ultimately, being a composer has become not just a way to express himself, but a way to connect with others.
