MV5BMTgwNTExOTcxNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMjE2MDEzOQ@@._V1._SX500_SY375_JT_Headshots2012_14_lo-resJoseph Trapanese’s love of classical music and electronic sound began at a young age.  The duality continued through his formal conservatory training in New York, where he juxtaposed performing in Carnegie Hall and other major New York concert venues with scoring films, contributing to theatrical productions, performing with jazz and Latin bands, and writing experimental and interactive music.  Upon arriving in Los Angeles, the seemingly parallel tracks began to come together, leading to collaborations with artists for several of the most anticipated soundtracks of recent memory: from Daft Punk (“Tron: Legacy”) to Mike Shinoda (“The Raid: Redemption”), as well as M83 (“Oblivion” and “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming”) and Moby (“Extreme Ways” from “The Bourne Legacy”).  A versatile composer in his own right, he has lent his unique sound to productions such as “Tron: Uprising” and “The Bannen Way” as well as numerous independent films and theatrical productions.  Forthcoming projects include “The Raid 2: Berandal” and Relativity’s “Earth To Echo.”  Joseph has also contributed as an arranger to albums from Kelly Clarkson (“Wrapped in Red”), Active Child (“Rapor EP”), White Sea (forthcoming album), and 3Oh!3 (co-writer and co-producer of “Do Or Die”).  He has conducted live performances with M83 (2013 at The Hollywood Bowl with The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra; and 2012 Summerstage at New York City’s Central Park) and Kelly Clarkson (“Kelly Clarkson’s A Cautionary Christmas Tale”).
