Robert Neufeld

Emmy nominated composer for National Geographic, PBS, BBC and independent filmmakers.

I specialize in scoring natural history, ethnographic and historical documentaries. Scores currently receiving broadcast include ‘Dawn Of Humanity’ (2 Hour special for PBS NOVA about the largest hominid bone discovery in history), ‘Untamed Americas’, (a major natural history series for National Geographic, narrated by Josh Brolin), and ‘Kingdom Of The Apes’ (2 x 1 hour natural history films on primate behaviour, featuring primatologist Jane Goodall).

I trained at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where excellence in classical performance and composition formed the bedrock of learning – and these are qualities on which my work continues to be based. But I’m also a music technology gearhead who likes to explore how traditional elements can be combined with fresh, contemporary sounds and treatments.
