Behind the Music of Theo Bimson

Driven by an intense curiosity for all things musical, I am fascinated by the unending possibilities for creativity and experimentation it presents. My compositions often reflect this with the interesting sounds, melodies, and harmonies I strive to create. I am proud of all the work I produce but am very able to alter and edit my work to fit the desires of the director and their vision in order to create high-quality work within a deadline. I take feedback well and thrive when creating sound and music collaboratively. I am equally able to create soft, introspective pieces of music as I am creating large, sweeping orchestral scores.

 

Skills: 

• Excellent communicator, enthusiastic worker, and compelling public speaker with strong interpersonal skills.
• Confident leader and team member.
