Michael McCormack

Michael McCormack arranges, performs and customizes original music for film, television, internet and video productions. His scoring capabilities span a variety of genres ranging from classical, romantic symphonic to modern "electronic" music. Video production services are also available.

Michael has composed, produced, and performed music for many high-profile projects, including creating the original music score and songs for the epic "Jaws" documentary "The Shark Is Still Working: The Impact and Legacy of JAWS," which is available on the official "JAWS" blu-ray.

McCormack has also provided original songs and scores to award-winning features like the original "Back To the Future" Documentary "Looking Back at the Future," "The Agonist" and "The Tyler Mullins Story" for Agenda Films. Michael composed the score for Erik Hollander's award-winning short,"Big Ticket" and also provided the elegant score for the award-winning emotional film "Alius Primoris," a winning finalist in the 2008 Doorpost film project.

Additionally, Michael provided a lush-electronic "symphonic-techno" dance score for "Balocity," a ballet-inspired workout DVD recently lauded by Prevention magazine as one of 2008's 10 best workout videos, featuring Deanna McBrearty of the New York City ballet, and also provided the classy opening and closing theme music for "Movie Geeks United!," the most popular movie talk show available on Blogtalkradio and i-Tunes with over a million downloads a week.

More film work followed as McCormack composed and recorded the music for the thrillers "3 Hands" for J. Michael Roddy and Chris Raucci, and "Lamp Post Lane" for Producer/Director Rick Jansen.

For it's 2012 convention, the Nashville Composers Association selected a film-score track by Michael McCormack to be included as part of a showcase of Nashville talent to be distributed to top film & TV executives visiting the annual Film-Com event in Nashville, TN.

Then, 2013 saw the release of the limited-edition CD soundtrack for "Looking Back at the Future," released in conjunction with the official "Back to the Future" website; and another score was composed for Director Rick Jansen's "Retrospect."

In 2014, McCormack provided a full score for a large private advertising/convention campaign for a major corporate client. The electronic "experimental" instrumental album "Neon" was also released worldwide at the end of the year.

July 2015 brought the soundtrack for the documentary "Hail To the King: 60 Years of Destruction" for Documentarian Kyle Yount, which premiered at the annual G-Fest in Chicago celebrating 60 years of Godzilla®. The documentary was nominated for a Rhondo Award.

Three new project scores are in the works for 2016, the feature-film score for "The Shark," an action-thriller which has been in pre-production for two years; and a documentary project involving a popular Martha's Vineyard artist for later this year; and finally, frequent collaborator J Michael Roddy's "MonsterKids," a documentary involving the fan culture of "Famous Monsters of Filmland."

2017 will bring a new musical score for "Long Live the King" - a new and exciting documentary celebrating 80 years of KONG; a production by Frank Dietz and Trish Geiger.

For 2018, comes "Tales of Frankenstein," an ambitious anthology feature film in the classic horror tradition. Directed by legendary author, filmmaker and global Frankenstein authority, Donald F. Glut (novelist for The Empire Strikes Back); this gothic, epic film will receive an original symphonically-based score that adapts as the film moves from gothic castles to more urban cityscapes.
