Kerry Muzzey

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 premiered at South by Southwest and did a featured run at the Sundance Film Festival. His past scores include Hole in the Paper Sky and To Russia With Love. This mostly-orchestral composer 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. 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 hit TV show So You Think You Can Dance.

In 2014, Kerry recorded a collection of works for string orchestra called The Architect. The album was recorded at London’s AIR Studios by the Chamber Orchestra of London, and 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. His recent albums Possible Music, The Vision, and Trailer Music 4 all debuted in the top 5 on the iTunes Classical Charts.

Kerry met choreographer Kenneth Tindall in 2015 after seeing Kenneth’s work The Architect at the Royal Opera House, which used Kerry’s piece Architect of the Mind. Casanova was Kerry’s first full-length ballet.
