“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life, to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually, no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now.” – Hugh Laurie
Edith Mudge is a composer/producer based out of Los Angeles. She grew up in Redding, Connecticut, and later resided in New York City, central New Hampshire, and Amman, Jordan. She received her BA in Music from Skidmore College, where her work in composition earned her the school’s elusive Periclean Award. After pounding the pavement in NYC, Edith came to LA to pursue work as an orchestrator, and soon after, she stumbled upon a panel of strong, capable women composers. It dawned on her that the only thing keeping her from being a composer, after all her training, was an ingrained belief that women aren’t media composers. Her path changed. She spent the next several years assisting and learning from A-list composers, and writing in-house for music production companies Bleeding Fingers and Jingle Punks. Her work and life are greatly influenced by her stubborn desire for social justice for all, and her own experience that representation matters. She currently composes for TV, film, podcasts, live theater and more, with a specialty in electronic drama, synth pop, and choral music.
