Since moving from Japan to Los Angeles in 2009, Gareth Coker, a composer for film, games and commercials has gradually established a foothold in the industry through writing for numerous projects, both big and small and in multiple genres. He is noted for creating unique soundscapes in his scores while also being able to apply these exotic and unconventional tones in a way that fits the story being told. This approach earned him the attention of Moon Studios, which quickly approached him to compose the score for the highly acclaimed game ORI AND THE BLIND FOREST, released in March 2015, and reviewed as one of the highest rated games of the new generation, with the soundtrack being universally praised.
Coker’s film work includes the two feature films LABYRINTH, starring James Franco, and Dark Power, starring Kristianna Loken and Sean Patrick Flanery. He has also scored a plethora of short films, including award winners WAKING UP, RECOIL, and WHAT TO BRING TO AMERICA.In addition to Ori And The Blind Forest, he has scored the games PRIMAL CARNAGE and INMOMENTUM.
In addition to his scoring duties, he writes numerous cues for library music companies, notably ICON TRAILER MUSIC and EMI PRODUCTION MUSIC. He also has worked closely with several trailer houses, especially ZEALOT, INC. to provide custom music for their marketing campaigns, which have included Oscar-winners THE KING’S SPEECH and SECRET IN THEIR EYES.
