Robert Neufeld

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

I specialize in scoring films about the natural world: wildlife, environmental and ethnographic stories. The music for these films is key in bridging to the felt experience of the audience – reaching their hearts as well as their minds and reawakening a care for the world’s remaining wild lands, species and indigenous peoples.

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 fan of music technology, especially where it allows for the creation of fresh textures and new sound worlds.
