Favorite Quote: “…for few of us can identify with divine genius, but many of us probably have had dark moments of urgent self-contempt in the face of those whose effortless existence illustrates our own inadequacies.” From Roger Ebert’s review of Amadeus.
Nathan Towns is a film composer based out of the midwest United States. He has studied under a host of well-known composers, such as Christopher Lennertz, Christophe Beck, Christopher Young, Theodore Shapiro and Hans Zimmer. His favorite thing about film scoring is the opportunity it affords to write in a wide variety of different musical styles. The first soundtrack he ever bought was Mission to Mars by Ennio Morricone.
