SELECTED FILM / TV HIGHTLIGHTS
ALL WE HAVE LEFT
( Composer | Orchestrator )
West Texas born composer Harlan Hodges writes, performs and records music that blends the lonesome, smoky, and distant atmospheres of the American Southwest with the lush harmonic language of jazz and vibrant melodies of the Hollywood Golden Age. Educated in the classical tradition and self taught as a jazz musician, his music embraces the intimate relationship between styles, improvisation, performance, cutting-edge technology, and craftsmanship. The soulful call of blues, rolling rhythm of Western Swing, driving forces of rock and the great orchestral literature have all contributed to an eclectic and versatile background for his unique approach to scoring in modern cinema.
He is an alumni of the SESAC Scores project, GRAMMY NEXT, the SCL Mentors Program, and was recently selected to participate in the the 2019 ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop.
He lives in Los Angeles, CA working full-time as a composer for films, television, games, and records.
