Multi award-winning composer Ceiri Torjussen’s music was described by the Los Angeles Times as a “sudden bolt of creative lightning.” As a Welsh-born, Los Angeles based composer, his credits run the gamut of independent films, documentaries, network TV, animation and numerous large- budget studio films.
Among Torjussen’s recent projects is the dark drama All Creatures, starring Karen Gillian and the horror film Primal Rage. Other recent projects include the psychological thriller Jack Goes Home (starring Rory Culkin and Lin Shaye) which premiered at SXSW 2016. The Canal, which premiered at Tribeca 2014 features a terrifying, experimental score to a critically-acclaimed horror film (now on Netflix). His extensive documentary work includes such award-winning films as Mr. Calzaghe, about boxing legend Joe Calzaghe (BBC/eOne). Becoming Bulletproof, about some disabled filmmakers making a Western, premiered on Showtime in 2015. In 2013 Ceiri scored two award-winning films: Test (winner of Outfest and featured at the 2014 Berlinale) is a drama set in the 1980s, and features a moodily ambient electronic score; and on the other end of the stylistic spectrum, Big Ass Spider! (premiered at SXSW 2013), a bombastic, action romp featuring full orchestra with a hard-rock edge, and a nod back to the classic monster-movie scores of the 1950s. He composed additional, heart-thumping action music for Hitman: Agent 47, Repo Men, Live Free or Die Hard and Underworld Evolution, and orchestral action-comedy music for Scary Movie II. He is currently completing his score to the documentary film Pistorius about famed Paralympic athlete and murder convict Oscar Pistorius.
