Robert Allaire - Co-Writer / Composer

Robert Allaire is a Los Angeles based composer whose work at the intersection of music and sound design has garnered accolades from LA Weekly and The New York Times. His style fuses dark electronics, contemporary experimental techniques, and bold orchestral writing into a unique voice which has been heard in films, video games, and over 400 individual episodes of television. Robert's egalitarian approach to a diverse range of musical styles has led to wide variety in his film work. He provided an intimate, romantic orchestral score for Dennis Hauck's bold debut feature TOO LATE, a metal-infused noise score featuring the sound of razor blades on guitar strings for Adam Egypt Mortimer's feminist slasher SOME KIND OF HATE, and a dark, glitchy electronic score for the SCEA video game KILL STRAIN. His other recent projects include segments of the anthology film HOLIDAYS with directors Scott Stewart and Adam Egypt Mortimer.
