New York, NY (January 28, 2009)--Indie composer Joachim Horsley’s original music and sound design were on display in three shorts and an award-winning feature-length film at the Sundance Film Festival.
At Sundance, Horsley's work was represented in the shorts "HUG," "PAL/SECAM" and "Concerto," starring David Zayas (Dexter), as well as in the feature "Unattached." ASCAP also invited him to the Online Composer Spotlight event at Sundance.
"Joachim is just an amazing composer," said Khary Jones, director of "HUG." "He is professional, yet truly creative and brings forth emotion through the music. The instruments and musicians he chose to weave together a score truly brought our film to life."
In the past, Horsley has scored TV shows and promos airing on NBC, ABC, HBO, TruTV, A&E, The Biography Channel, The History Channel and The Travel Channel. Although his television work helped build up his professionalism and refine his art, his passion lies in creating original scores of music for indie films. In late 2004, he launched his studio LittleHorse Music & Audio in New York, where he specializes in music and audio services for independent films.
Horsley's film work has also screened at Cannes, Telluride, Palm Springs, Tribeca, Santa Barbara, Ft. Lauderdale, and many others. Four of his films were finalists for the Student Academy Awards 2008, including "Unattached," which won the Silver Student Academy Award (documentary category). Other indie films he has scored in 2008 include "Quality Time," starring David Alan Basche, and "Men's Affair," starring Fatah Bensalem and John Crann.
When not in his studio, Joachim Horsley and his brother, Erich, tour clubs and colleges across the country as the front men of "America's Only Double-Piano Rock Band," LittleHorse, which has won praise from national publications including Keyboard Magazine and National Public Radio.
