COMPOSER BIO
   

Munich-born, L.A.-based composer Kubilay Uner has traversed the planet and many a genre, which helps explain his approach to music: Rich, dense textures. Custom-built instruments. Blends of live instruments with found sounds and samples. Bent tempi, layered noise and mixed metaphors. His goal for every piece is to deliver an intense experience for the listener, one that immerses and transforms. Says Kubi, "A good piece of music takes you on a journey. A really good one takes you somewhere unexpected."

He recently applied this notion to the music for Transamerica's new television ad campaign, "We Are The Tomorrowmakers". This assignment had the special challenge of incorporating the song "Tomorrow" from "Annie" in just the first of four spots, while at the same time establishing a sonic signature to carry through the entire campaign. (See videos posted above.)

In addition to composing for feature films, concerts, theater and advertising, Kubi produces and arranges recordings for a range of artists. Past collaborations include soul legend Bobby Womack and Mexican-American chanteuse Perla Batalla. Active in the Los Angeles contemporary music scene, Kubi helms an underground series of composer salons, with presenters ranging from songwriting legend Randy Newman to Pulitzer-prize winning composer Steven Stucky and electronic music pioneer Mort Subotnick. These stylistically diverse gatherings are yet another expression of Kubi's creative credo: Good music happens when you mix things up.
