Kerry Muzzey is a film and modern classical composer whose music can be heard on both the big and small screens. His most recent score was for the documentary Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry executive-produced by Robert Redford and Terrence Malick, which will be shown at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. His past scores include Hole in the Paper Sky, the first film from Jessica Biel’s production company Iron Ocean Films, and To Russia With Love, the Sundance Films documentary executive-produced by Oscar nominee Howard Gertler of How to Survive a Plague. As a mostly-orchestral composer Kerry is probably best known for a quiet little piano piece called Looking Back that found its way into the hit TV series Glee as a recurring love theme for the show’s two most beloved couples, Rachel & Finn and Will & Emma. Kerry’s music also found its way to #1 on the iTunes and Amazon charts after his pieces Architect of the Mind and Bernini’s Angels were choreographed and performed on the show So You Think You Can Dance.
In 2014, Kerry created a collection of works for string orchestra called The Architect which was recorded in the legendary hall at London’s AIR Studios by the Chamber Orchestra of London. The album spent three months featured on the front page of the iTunes Classical Store after spending its first two weeks of release at No. 5 on the Billboard Classical Chart and the Billboard Contemporary Classical Chart.
Kerry met choreographer Kenneth Tindall in 2015 after seeing Kenneth’s The Architect at the Royal Opera House, which used Kerry’s piece Architect of the Mind.
Casanova is Kerry’s first full-length ballet and first live theatrical work.
