About Me

"Being a good film composer requires more than just being competent with music. To facilitate a director’s vision, a composer must understand all the nuances of the story being told, and then create a music component that fits that narrative like a tailored suit.

Music has tremendous power to affect the success of a scene. The Dirty Little Secret is that an effective film score is wholly manipulative: it uses subliminal messaging and psycho-emotional cues to (gently) guide the viewer’s perception of the unfolding information.

The benefit of this is that a good score can take you into levels of the story that dialogue cannot. Effective music can provide a critical window into a character’s mind or motivation; it has the ability to convey ideas and feelings that cannot be overtly expressed with words."

Two time Emmy-nominated composer Mark Koval has a long history composing music for film and television. His feature film credits include the suspense thriller The Guest House and the cult horror favorite Love Bites. In 2014, he received an International Film Music Critics Award (IFMCA) nomination for his work on Warner Bros. Batman: the Animated Series. Mark has also scored several feature length documentaries including director Debra Tolchinsky's Fast Talk and the 2018 animal rescue series Furthest From the Wild.
