MUSIC FOR VISUAL MEDIA
MATT BUKATY is an American composer of music for film, games, television, advertising and the web. His compelling, emotionally-charged music has accompanied a number of narrative and documentary films that have screened at festivals worldwide, including the Festival de Cannes 2015.
His most recent work has included numerous collaborations with Andrew & Ben Adams of Atomic Productions, the creators of a number of highly regarded films including the viral hit "The Splinter Cell" (and its forthcoming sequel), based on the popular video game series by Ubisoft Montréal, as well as "Thunder & Ash" which was selected to screen at Cannes early last year. In addition to this, Matt is currently composing the score for the feature film “Inhumane”, directed by Ryan Robins and produced by friend and frequent collaborator Devin Edwards of Cinema Tale, starring Michelle Money and Jason James Richter. Matt has also licensed music for various commercial and corporate clients including Southwest Airlines, IDLife, SUCCESS Magazine and the University of Texas school system.
Matt is also co-composer of "The Hunger Games Music Project", a collaboration with friend and fellow composer Edward Underhill. They have completed two of three planned albums inspired by the novels of Suzanne Collins, the music of which exhibits hybrid scoring techniques, fusing synthetic and sampled instruments with live performers. The project has received international attention and is swiftly developing a worldwide fan base. You can sample the music and read about the project online here.
