Blending orchestral classicism with modern sensibilities, BAFTA-nominated composer Takeshi Furukawa's music has accompanied some of the world's most recognized images on screen. From his work on Star Trek: Enterprise and Star Wars: Clone Wars, to Cannes Lions-winning global campaigns for Mercedes-Benz, Apple, Canon, and Sony, Furukawa's compositions are characterized by clarity and cinematic orchestration.
Furukawa's recent work on the highly acclaimed PlayStation title, The Last Guardian, has established him as one of the most exciting new voices in the video game industry. The score has garnered a Premio Drago d'Oro, an IGN Award, and a GANG Award, as well as nominations at the BAFTA Games Awards, D.I.C.E. Awards, SXSW Gaming Awards, and the International Film Music Critics Association Awards among others.
Also an ardent enthusiast of concert music, his works have been performed and recorded by some of the world's preeminent ensembles including the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, and the American Youth Symphony to mention but a few.
Furukawa resides in Los Angeles, and is represented by the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency.
