aBOUT THE COMPOSER:
Joshua Sohn is a Korean-American composer with a degree in Music at the University of Utah. After four years in education, teaching music and conducting in front of youth ensembles, his passion for writing music on his time-off ultimately led to pursuing it seriously as a career.
From September of 2014, Josh started Sohn Compositions and has since then premiered original music with the Air Force Reserve, 48 Hour Film Festival, Slamdance Film Festival, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, Audience Awards Film Festival and the Salt Lake Symphony. Other musical experiences include composing music for, “Come As You Are,” an anti-bullying musical play for grades 6-12, writing jingles for businesses, and performing as a percussionist across the globe.
When he is away from his composing desk, Josh enjoys walking his dog, watching movies of all genres, and playing with the junk drumming sensation, Salt Lake Alternative Percussion (SLAP).
Growing up with beautiful, creative music is what inspired me, and in turn, I feel my work can provide that same inspiration to others.
“Film is made up of a series of moving parts. It can be argued that without solid picture, acting and story, you can't hope to have a compelling film… but without a solid score, your film can never truly move people. Josh from Sohn Compositions helped to elevate my film from good to amazing! I can honestly say that without his exemplary musical contributions, my film could only reach a small portion of its full potential. He is the only person I trust to score my work, and truly bring my stories to life.”
