Robert Neufeld

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

Music is key in bridging to the felt experience of a film’s audience – reaching their hearts as well as their minds and helping to make emotional sense of a film’s narrative. It is this intersection between storytelling and feeling which is the essence of composing for picture.

Robert trained at the Royal Academy of Music in London – where excellence in classical performance and composition formed the bedrock of learning – and then at the UK National Film and Television School. His work is a hybrid of classical and contemporary influences, allowing the creation of sound worlds which are at once fresh and novel while at the same time being emotionally resonant.
