Ryan Garrison is a composer and sound designer for various forms of media. Having began his career as a hip hop producer and DJ, his trajectory to becoming a film composer was unlikely and serendipitous. Not learning where middle C was on a piano until the age of 26 it is fair to label Ryan a "late bloomer." Ryan was given the gift of scoring a film for producer Tim Johnson and tasked with scoring a 90 minute film in 3 weeks with limited previous experience. After this trial by fire and an epic period of resuscitation, Ryan realized that his passion became telling stories through music. "I had a myriad of interests. Becoming interested in film music, I began to learn to tell the stories of things I was interested in through my favorite thing in the world, music. It was truly a life changing moment when I actually learned to express myself through music. Up until that moment I had never realized all my thoughts and feelings in a tangible form."
To this day Ryan has scored 5 feature films, a video game, and various trailers and advertisements. Ryan's obsession with music keeps him busy but when he's not in the studio he's probably thinking about music, films, or food.
