HIGHLIGHT BIO/INFO:

Christopher Tyng’s 20+ years writing, performing and producing music for television, film and records has produced an amazingly diverse list of credits and collaborations.  He holds numerous awards from BMI, SESAC, two OFTA nominations and a win for best TV theme (Futurama). Music from his scores, soundtracks and projects have been streamed many millions of times by fans the world over.

In his work composing original scores for television series and films, Tyng’s notable recent projects range from the dark electronica and retro-soul-tinged music on the top-rated USA Network multi-season hit series “Suits” to the dark and moody music on the Golden Globe nominated firehouse drama “Rescue Me”; the indie/emo score for the genre-defining hit FOX series “The OC”; and the space-age-retro electronica theme and orchestral underscore for Matt Groening’s Emmy award-winning “Futurama.”  Rounding out his resume are numerous scores and songs for independent and major TV and film releases from ABC, NBCUniversal, Warner Bros., Sony, FOX, HBO, Touchstone, Polygram, and Interscope among many others.

As an artist, Tyng draws on a broad knowledge of musical cultures, styles and genres, bringing a multi-faceted original approach to the music he creates.  From songwriting and scoring a film with the seminal LA punk bank “X” - to scoring live with the London Symphony - to performing all of the parts on a indie-band, electronica, or multi-ethnic score himself, Tyng is equally at home in front of the microphones, producing/mixing at the recording console, remixing with his DJ rig, and creating bespoke sound design with his wall-sized modular synthesizer.  With every project he continues to cultivate new musical territory that is memorable, emotional, and unique.

Known to always be on the cutting edge of music, Tyng is a master technologist as well as an ergonomics and workflow expert. He has designed and implemented multiple commercial studios for his own teams, as well as a complete post/dubbing studio for 20th Century Fox.  Tyng’s current 6000 sq’ studio complex is widely held to be one of the most inspirational and sophisticated studios the world over; it includes a first-ever revolving-floor mixing/producing control room (where the artist remains in the sonic “sweet spot” no matter what workstation is being used); a multi-HD-camera performance soundstage with full concert-lighting trusses and related editorial suite; as well as more traditional recording/writing spaces that house an incredible and carefully curated collection of acoustic instruments, vintage analog and modular synthesizers, boutique recording equipment and cutting edge software. Tyng is fluent in and makes innovative use of his main platforms Avid Pro Tools, Apple Logic Pro, Ableton Live and NI Traktor (DJ).  As well, Tyng’s continued involvement in both inventing and evolving new tools and the workflow itself of media content production, management and delivery has the potential to herald changes for the entire industry in the years to come.
