Mark Smythe_Score Bio Pic_edited_edited.

Mark is a New Zealand-born composer of Choral, Film and Concert Music, based in Los Angeles. In 2023, his score for The Reef: Stalked  was nominated in both the SCL Awards and World Soundtrack Awards. He also premiered "Alone" for Choir & Electric Guitar with LA Choral Lab, at their highly acclaimed 'Apsis' concert.

Whether for the screen or concert hall, Mark's music is melodically evocative and accessible. The NZ Listener describes his Moto Mojo as "so tuneful you remember it all instantly". The first thing Movie Music UK noticed about The Reef: Stalked score was "how beautiful large parts of it are". Mark holds a Graduate Diploma in Screen Composition (Distinction) from AFTRS (Australian Film, TV & Radio School) and is on the Media Composition Faculty at CSUN (California State University Northridge).
