COMPOSER & MUSIC DIRECTOR
Music by Leah Curtis
Text by Elliot V Kotek
for score and recording
Commissioned by the Australian Voices and artsACT
I compose and produce original music soundtracks and scores for film directors, orchestras, choirs, choreographers, solo artists and game developers.
I was born and raised in Australia graduating in Music from the University of New South Wales and the Australian Film Television and Radio School in Sydney. I have significant experience working in the United States, taking up a Fulbright Award at USC’s Thornton School of Music and working as a composer and orchestrator on independent and major studio productions.
I am driven to uncover the authentic musical voice of a project, and take the first notes of an idea through to conducting on the scoring stage and final mixing and production. My passion for the creative process has found a home in my work composing and producing original scores and in the broadcast series I host, Directing the Music.
My work has earned a Fulbright Fellowship, the Queen Elizabeth II Trust Award, Young Shakespearean Artist of the Year Award, The Reg Waite Award a Composition Fellowship at the Aspen Music Festival and a Hollywood Music Award among others.
I am currently based out of the West Coast of the United States from my studio where I work with clients from around the globe.
I have appeared in UK’s Clash Magazine, written for Moving Pictures Magazine, been heard on on ABC Classic FM, and interviewed live on ABC Radio Overnight among others.
