BT (aka Brian Transeau) is a Grammy-nominated musician, producer, composer, singer, and songwriter. He has composed scores for high-profile films across the spectrum, including Monster (starring Oscar-winner Charlize Theron), Stealth, The Fast and the Furious (both for director Rob Cohen), Under Suspicion, Catch and Release, and Renny Harlin’s Driven. BT has also written music for the animated Pixar shorts Tokyo Mater and Partysaurus Rex. Most recently BT wrote the score for select episodes of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams on Amazon, the ABC Television Series Betrayal, Dark Places starring Charlize Theron, Warner Bros. mystery thriller Solace starring Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins, and the Brazilian UFC documentary, Aldo which centers around the life of UFC fighter Jose Aldo. His latest album “A Song Across Wires” debuted at #1 on the iTunes, Amazon, Billboard and Beatport electronic music charts.
Credited as the creator of “trance,” BT’s musical journey started in the classical realm in his hometown of Rockville, Maryland, then in school at Berklee. He became an innovator in the world of electronic music, leading him to produce and collaborate with the likes of NSync, Britney Spears, Peter Gabriel, and Tori Amos. He made his film debut as a composer with the crime thriller Go. BT says that his career, in a way, has been to disprove a theory teacher who claimed there would never be anything new in music. “In a way,” he says, “I am more of an explorer than a composer.”
