A little about Rob Gokee.
I’m a composer. I write music for film, television & webseries, and I’ve contributed to over 100 projects in the last 6 years. The best part about my job is the relationships I’ve formed with Directors, Producers, Actors, Casting Agents, Gaffers, Directors of Photography. All of these talented people come together and create a beautiful piece of art, and I’m honored to add my brush strokes.
The music I create for film comes from me but does not belong to me. It’s a collaboration; it wouldn’t exist without the visual elements that inspire me. I compose, and orchestrate, and compose again, until it’s right. It’s important to me to find a film’s voice, which comes from a combination of the filmmaker’s vision and what’s inside of me. If you’re a director or producer, I’d love to be a part of your next project. Contact me and lets talk about what your film needs.
