My name is Jonathan Galland and I am a French music composer, currently
established in San Francisco, California. My work for motion pictures has
received international music awards in more than 20 countries and has been
featured on internet radios, trade publications, and various film music blogs.
Classically trained from a young age as a violinist and through the French
music schools, I later found my true calling in the field of composition for
motion pictures. I earned both a BFA and MFA in Music Production and
Sound Design for Visual Media, with an emphasis on Film Scoring at the
Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California.
I am a grant recipient from the Jazz Foundation of America, and a member
of the Recording Academy (NARAS) which host the famous Grammy Awards. I am also approved to submit work for Academy Award consideration in the “Best Original Score” category. I am presently a voting member on the panel of the 2021 World Soundtrack Awards in Belgium, and have also been a member of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, where I have served numerous times as a judge at the prestigious JUNO Awards.
As a musical storyteller, I now delight myself in helping many filmmakers bring their vision to life through the power of sound.
