About

BC SMITH - Composer

From his first film score, Chris Eyre and Sherman Alexie's SMOKE SIGNALS (Sundance Film Festival's Audience Award and Filmmaker Trophy winner), to horror master Tobe Hooper's final film DJINN, to Steven Cantor's Hulu documentary BALLET NOW, BC Smith is one of those rare composers firmly entrenched in a world of diverse and eclectic musical styles.

Whether working with modular synthesizers, multifarious ensembles, large orchestras, peyote singers, aleatorics or bespoke electronics, BC approaches every movie from its own unique perspective, creating an original sonic pallet and score that is truly born from the film's story and aesthetic.

Notable projects include Chris Eyre's award-winning films, SKINS, EDGE OF AMERICA and the Robert Redford produced Tony Hillerman detective series (THIEF OF TIME, SKINWALKERS, COYOTE WAITS), MGM's MOD SQUAD, the John Cusack and Emma Roberts starred ADULT WORLD, AMANDA AND JACK GO GLAMPING staring Amy Acker and David Arquette, and Netflix's Ryan Koo drama AMATEUR.

His love of pushing boundaries has led to his ongoing collaboration with Nine Inch Nails / How To Destroy Angels multi-instrumentalist Alessandro Cortini under the nom de guerre ACBC. Winners of a bronze Clio and silver Eurobest Cannes Lion for their music, their international projects include Gus Van Sant and Martin Werner directed campaigns for BMW, the award- winning 8 part Woodkid directed films for Rihanna's album ANTI and the firefighting documentary BURN, winner of the Tribeca Film Festival's Audience Award.

Currently, he is delivering his score to the sci-fi film ALT starring SALEM'S Elise Eberle and Sloane Morgan Siegel, collaborating with Steven Cantor again for the documentary HOOD RIVER and attached to score the family autism drama LANGUAGE ARTS.

BC is also an accomplished amateur magician and member of the Academy of Magical Arts world famous Magic Castle. He specializes in intimate curated evenings of close up magic, haunted artifacts and paranormal entertainment.
