Biography

Jeff Herriott composes music using sounds that gently shift and bend at the edges of perception. His works have been described as “colorful…darkly atmospheric” (New York Times) and “incredibly soft, beautiful, and delicate” (Computer Music Journal). Jeff’s compositions have been supported by commissions from the MATA Festival, the American Composers Forum through the Jerome Composers Commissioning Program, the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition, and the National Endowment for the Arts Art Works Imagine Your Parks Program. Jeff is also active as a collaborator in a range of musical styles, including with the sleepy rock/ ambient project Bell Monks; with the heavy metal band Realmbuilder; as a laptop composer/ improviser with Skewed and Such and Sonict; and most recently as a film composer on the 2015 existential horror western, Bone Tomahawk, starring Kurt Russell.
