Gregor Narholz biography

The composer was born and raised in Gmunden, Austria, where he began piano lessons at age 4 and received rigourous home instruction from his composer father, Gerhard Narholz. After high school, Gregor studied at the Richard Strauss Konservatorium in Munich, where he graduated with a degree in Classical Composition & Conducting. After attending a summer honors seminar in film music with composer Ennio Morricone, in Basel, Switzerland, Gregor moved to Los Angeles and completed the USC graduate program in “Scoring for Motion Pictures & Television,” where he won the BMI Music Award in 1995. Since 1992 Gregor has also written and produced an oeuvre of more than 900 production-music compositions, which have been licensed worldwide for film soundtracks, promos and trailers; commercials; and major network and cable TV news shows, sitcoms, specials and dramatic series. Gregor orchestrates all his own work and is an accomplished conductor who has acted as co-director of the Budapest Film Orchestra since 1992. He also does his own synth programming. His film credits include original scores for theatrical features, from animation to action-adventure to crime-thriller, and scores for award-winning dramatic and horror shorts, as well as more than 40 documentaries. He has worked with Electronic Arts on various projects, notably composing the deep modern classical soundtrack for Battlefield 2142. Gregor maintains state-of-the-art mixing studios in both Los Angeles and Munich (a Dolby Digital 5.1 setup).
