BILLY MARTIN


BIO: Whether conducting a 60-piece orchestra on the famed Sony sound stage or crafting an electronic score in his own technically appointed studio, composer Billy Martin creates music to tell stories. It may be music that mirrors the drama of a feature film, annotates the hyper-kinetic motion of an animated network series, or delivers the futuristic vision of a video game; in all projects, Billy's music moves in sonic counterpoint to the on-screen action. He composes for new media with a range of projects for companies including Ubisoft, Disney Interactive, EA, and Sony Online. His recent scores include Rayman Origins, Punch Time Explosion, Ben10 Ultimate Alien Cosmic Destruction and Toy Story Mania! A five-time G.A.N.G Award nominee, the Game Audio Network Guild presented Billy with a 2002 G.A.N.G Award "Best Edutainment/Children Audio" for his score to the PC game Disney/Pixar Learning 2nd & 3rd Grade w/Buzz Lightyear. For television, he wrote the theme for the long-running celebrity interview show Entertainers featuring Byron Allen. As a songwriter, he has contributed songs to feature films including Spiderman 2 and Selena while television series from Desperate Housewives to Sex and the City have also featured his lyrics and music. Billy currently serves on the board of directors for the Society of Composers & Lyricists. He graduated with honors from Indiana University, where he studied music composition with John Eaton, Bernard Heiden, and Fred Fox. He has also studied conducting with Bill Kettering
