Stephanie Economou is a composer and violinist based in Los Angeles, CA. Her early successes have emerged from her exploration and study of widely varying musical styles, including classical, experimental, folk and rock. Stephanie’s experience in film scoring extends from drama to action to animation, which has demanded the synthesis of an electronic and acoustic musical palette. It is her uniquely hybridized compositional voice which has proven a valuable asset across a wide spectrum of visual media.
Stephanie is a long-time collaborator of Golden Globe-nominated composer, Harry Gregson-Williams, composing additional music on scores such as Jon Turtletaub’s The Meg, Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer 2, Disneynature’s Penguins, and Ridley Scott’s Oscar-winning film The Martian. Her music can also be heard in Niki Caro’s The Zookeeper’s Wife, Ben Affleck’s Live By Night, and Simon Baker’s Breath. Most recently, she has aided in crafting the scores for Hulu’s mini-series Catch-22 directed by George Clooney and Grant Heslov, as well as the ABC/Warner Bros. TV series Whiskey Cavalier.
Stephanie is the composer of the Lionsgate TV Series Step Up: High Water and the upcoming Disney+ documentary episode of Marvel 616, directed by Gillian Jacobs. She is currently underway on the second season of the Spectrum/Lionsgate anthology series Manhunt: Lone Wolf and is continuing her collaboration with Gregson-Williams on the live-action Disney re-make of Mulan.
Originally from Long Island, New York, Stephanie received her Bachelor’s degree in Composition from the New England Conservatory of Music and Master’s in Composition for Visual Media from University of California Los Angeles. In 2015, she was chosen as one of six fellows for the Sundance Institute Composers Lab at Skywalker Ranch. It was through this experience with the Sundance Institute that she felt her diversity as a woman in the film industry to be deeply fostered and celebrated. Stephanie considers the empowerment of women in film an exceedingly necessary platform, and strives to make her voice, as well as other female voices in the industry, heard.
