Effortlessly blending timeless orchestral elegance with modern sensibilities, award-winning composer Takeshi Furukawa's music has accompanied some of the world's most recognizable franchises and brands on screen. From his television works for Star Trek: Enterprise and Star Wars: Clone Wars, to the prestigious Cannes Lions-winning global campaigns for Mercedes-Benz, Apple, and Sony, Furukawa's signature style of soaring melodies colored by refined orchestration has become synonymous with cinematic grandeur.
His most recent appointment on the blockbuster PlayStation 4 title The Last Guardian has further established Furukawa as one of the most exciting new voices in the industry. For this third installment in the seminal Ico franchise, Furukawa collaborated with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Trinity Boys Choir, and the London Voices. The resulting score has garnered universal praise with various media outlets hailing Furukawa's music as "wondrous" (IGN) and "entirely gorgeous" (Forbes). Previous works in cinema include the score to the critically acclaimed Slamdance-winning documentary Bhopali. An ardent enthusiast of contemporary concert music, he also is currently working on a forthcoming album of chamber works. Furukawa resides in Los Angeles, and is represented worldwide by the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency.
