Andrew Ross Klein is a composer of music for film, television, commercials, and live performance. Known for his emphasis on textural, spatial, sweeping soundscapes, and driving rhythms, his works have been contracted in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States. Capturing emotion through visceral, engaging sound is his passion.
Beginning private composition lessons at age 16, Andrew attended the University of North Texas on percussion scholarship. There he studied composition under Elainie Lillios and Hideko Kawamoto, graduating in 2003. He currently resides in Portland.
“I have worked with Andrew Klein on multiple projects over the past 15 years, and can absolutely testify to his vast creativity. He has always carried himself with a professional work ethic and demeanor, and his attention to detail is second to none.”
-Knate Carter, Producer at Immateria Studios
“I couldn’t have asked for a better musician to come on board. I commend his diligence. Andrew is a one of a kind, brilliant musician. It doesn’t hurt that he’s also fun to both converse with and be around. If you are making a film in need of a composer, please don’t hesitate to hire this guy.”
-Montetré x, Founder of MWB3 Problems
Recent projects include feature films Marty In Transit, Zombie Cats From Mars, and Waldgeist.
Also, a commercial for local dance troupe, TripTheDark, and proof of concept for upcoming thriller Destination Road.
