Biography

Joseph Trapanese is best known for his sleek, ominous score work for blockbuster films like Tron: Legacy, Straight Outta Compton, Oblivion, and the Raid series. Born in New Jersey, Trapanese earned his B.A. in composition from the Manhattan School of Music. He went on to study at UCLA for his M.A. in music for visual media and ended up teaching electronic music and composition at the school from 2008-2011. As a composer, arranger, and producer for movie, television, theater, and video game music, he has collaborated with a number of mainstream musical acts. His first major break came in 2010 when he worked with Daft Punk on the sweeping digital soundtrack to Disney's Tron reboot/sequel. Trapanese followed that success by creating a score with Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park for the American release of the 2011 Indonesian martial arts film The Raid: Redemption (he would continue without Shinoda in 2014 with The Raid 2). That same year, he helped with arrangements on a handful of tracks for M83's breakthrough hit Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, which led to the pair's collaboration on the 2013 Tom Cruise sci-fi epic Oblivion. He also reworked Moby's "Extreme Ways" for The Bourne Legacy. Other notable scores include Earth to Echo (2014); The Divergent Series' second installment, Insurgent (2015); and the landmark rap biopic Straight Outta Compton (2015). In the studio, in addition to M83 and Moby, he has worked with Active Child, Dr. Dre, Kelly Clarkson, and 3OH!3. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
