DSC_1536 Profile Pic NC_v2
Los Angeles-based composer Rob Gokee, known for his varying style & flexibility, studied Music Theory & Composition at the University of New Mexico, and then spent six months under the tutelage of world renowned composer Christopher Young (Spider-Man 3, The Grudge, Ghost Rider). Rob has scored 12 feature films, over 100 short films, and three dozen different TV series & pilots, including the National Geographic show “Known Universe,” SyFy’s “Fact Or Faked,” PBS’ “Roadtrip Nation,” Speed Channel’s “Car Science,” and TruTV’s “Police POV.” Rob has also scored commercials for Sony two years in a row, promoting their surround sound products.
Rob won back-to-back IAWTV (International Academy of Web Television) awards for Best Score in 2012 and 2013, for the shows “Night of the Zombie King” and “Cost Of Capital,” which also won Best Score at the 2013 Indie Soap Awards. Rob’s style varies from epic orchestral to folk, to cutting edge action and horror.
Rob just finished  horror features “Love in the Time of Monsters” & “Hazard Jack,” and is currently scoring the feature “Alice & the Monster” – a romantic comedy, music for several Discovery & SyFy shows, readying a new CD compilation of television & film scores, and writing his second book, about composing for television & film in the indie world, and how to make a living doing it. He resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Producer Allison Vanore.

________________________________________________________
I’m a composer. I write music for film, television & webseries, and I’ve contributed to over 100 projects in the last 6 years. The best part about my job is the relationships I’ve formed with Directors, Producers, Actors, Casting Agents, Gaffers, Directors of Photography.  All of these talented people come together and create a beautiful piece of art,  and I’m honored to add my brush strokes.
The music I create for film comes from me but does not belong to me.  It’s a collaboration; it wouldn’t exist without the visual elements that inspire me.  I compose, and orchestrate, and compose again, until it’s right.  It’s important to me to find a film’s voice, which comes from a combination of the filmmaker’s vision and what’s inside of me.  If you’re a director or producer, I’d love to be a part of your next project.  Contact me and lets talk about what your film needs.
