Keith J. Siegel
I am a composer for film, television, advertising, and other media. As a composer of incidental music, I am here to help you tell your narrative. I seek to truly understand each project I undertake, considering its tones, themes, emotional beats, and characters.
My musical roots are as a pianist, guitarist, and vocalist. I graduated from Grinnell College, where I studied composition, orchestration, and electronic music. My recent projects include "Waiting List," an Atlantic Magazine Editors' Pick, and the upcoming feature,"Legends of Courage", created by Emmy-Winning Documentarian, Dawn Deason.
Take a listen to my albums "Queue the Cues," and "Jingles All the Way," for a taste of some of the genres I write in.
