Crafting a sound out of both love for the orchestra and for modern songwriting, Los Angeles-based composer Cyrus Reynolds leans heavily towards the cinematic and dramatic. His vivid style is the result of a background in contemporary orchestration and cutting-edge sound design. A classically trained musician, Cyrus holds an MA from London's prestigious Royal Academy of Music. His radical approach to sound design has led to features by artists such as Kanye, Chance the Rapper, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys & Coldplay. At the heart of his sound is the orchestra, most recently working the Philharmonia Orchestra and the London Contemporary Orchestra at historic AIR Studios and Abbey Road for his 2018 album, Love In A Perfect Vacuum.
His compositions and songs have featured on a number of projects including Joachim Trier’s film Thelma, The Americans, Ethan Hawke’s Good Kill, Assassin’s Creed, and Greedfall.
