Joshua Abrams

Joshua Abrams has composed scores for 7 feature films, 6 short films, and the themes for StoryCorps Animated Shorts. His music has appeared in Oscar-nominated and Emmy award-winning films by directors Steve James and Bill Siegel, as well as films by Aaron Wickenden, Dan Rybicky, Jamie Meltzer, Dinesh Sabu, and Simon Starling. Joshua's score for Life Itself earned him a nomination for best score of 2015 from Cinema Eye Honors. Ray Pride of New City writes, "Abrams brings nuance and grace to the smallest human moments in his bristling marvel of a score for America to Me. Abrams watches the moment; he anticipates the future, the possibility of change, the possibility of tragedy, and so many grades of emotion. His score is stealth: patient, suggestive, eager to surprise. Abrams’ imagination is always fiercely applied to filmmakers’ ambitions." In 2018 Joshua received the prestigious Artist Grant for Music/Sound from the Foundation for Contemporary Art.
