Andrew Prahlow and Hollywood Chamber Orchestra Will Perform Music From Video Games

The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra presents BAFTA-nominated composer Andrew Prahlow who will join the orchestra performing the award-winning music—composed by Prahlow—from the video games Outer Wilds, Echoes of the Eye, and The Lost Reels.

Prahlow's music focuses on larger-than-life, emotive soundscapes with a core of chamber-ensemble minimalism, hoping to create a sense of familiar nostalgia for the listener. His soundtrack for Outer Wilds received four Best Original Score nominations (BAFTA, SXSW, Golden Joystick Awards, Jerry Goldsmith Awards), two G.A.N.G. nominations (Best Indie Game Music and Best Interactive Score), as well as two Best Game Music wins (Giant Bomb and OnlySinglePlayer Awards).

The Los Angeles-based artist began his career as an intern for John Powell while completing his graduate studies at USC's SMPTV Program. From 2011-2014, he assisted on the music of The Legend of Korra (Jeremy Zuckerman) and Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness (Zuckerman and Benjamin Wynn aka Deru). He also co-composed Reach The Sky for Disney's 2021 Epcot Entrance Soundtrack with Mark Petrie.

Prahlow has composed ambient soundscapes for the Madden NFL franchise, written an arrangement of Be Our Guest for the 2017 Oscars' Beauty and the Beast spot, and composed the score to 2017 Mobile VR Game of the Year, Eclipse: Edge of Light. Prahlow and Australian electronic artist Luminist's soundtrack to Atone: Heart of the Elder Tree was shortlisted among Apple's Best Audio of 2020. He has also written for trailer campaigns, including Star Wars, Avengers, Blade Runner 2049, and Star Trek.
