EMMY® Award-winning composer Alex Wurman is highly versatile with a broad musical palette. He is able to work with directors in many different genres. Whether writing critically-acclaimed music for an Oscar®-winning film, supporting comedy with musical punctuation for box office giants, or capturing the essence of brainy ideas for indie films, Wurman traverses the film-score landscape with ease. This is exemplified by his eerie piano melodies of Confessions of A Dangerous Mind, groovy ’70’s themes for Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, contemporary interpretations of French impressionism for Thirteen Conversations About One Thing, and soulful melodies combined with ethereal orchestrations for March of the Penguins. Most recently, Alex scored Perpetual Grace LTD starring Sir Ben Kingsley and Jimmi Simpson, and Between Two Ferns The Movie, starring Zach Galifianakis.



Composer, arranger and pianist Sylvester Rivers has recorded with numerous hit artists including Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, The Jacksons, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dionne Warwick, Nancy Wilson, Kenny Rogers, Johnny Mathis, Aretha Franklin, New Edition, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Barry White, Marc Bolan & T. Rex, Ray Parker, Jr. & Raydio, Deniece Williams, The Fifth Dimension and many others.  Composing, arranging and orchestrating for television and film, as well, such as the television series, “Fame,” songs for the Kevin Bacon/ Laurence Fishburne film, “Quicksilver,” “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo,” “The Arsenio Hall Show” and numerous others, he has been prolific in producing music throughout a wide spectrum.
