Music for Media
About Jared DePasquale
"Sometimes I wonder what exactly it is I do for a living. It's more than just writing music for media. It's more than just saying I'm a part of the storytelling process. The more I do this, the more I realize that music holds this sacred space - it takes you from a place of mere entertainment to that magical moment and feeling - the moment you believe."
For over twenty five years Jared has composed the musical scores for some of Western culture’s most celebrated stories and iconic characters. The recipient of numerous awards and critical acclaim, his work is widely recognized for its ability to musically capture complex characters amidst stories that are rich in texture and meaning.
Early in his career, Jared apprenticed under Emmy and ASCAP Award winning composer Joseph LoDuca. With LoDuca, Jared learned the business of composing for A-list projects including the globally syndicated television shows Xena: The Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Immediately following his apprenticeship, Jared was recognized by Music from the Movies as one of the three most promising and interesting talents among film composers today.
DePasquale is the only person, regardless of award category, to have won three consecutive Seneca Awards (2017-2019).
Jared's Latest Releases
Jared is more than a composer – he’s an artist in every sense of the word. His score tells an amazingly vivid story, but never gets in the way of the actor’s performances. Just when you think, “Surely, he’s used up his bag of tricks”, he opens another bag. I marvel at Jared’s skill, his knowledge of how to turn an idea into a work of art, and his humility at the end of the process.
