Here’s where you get to read my endlessly compelling and earth-shatteringly
“Tim is a highly skilled composer with extraordinary talent for creating scores that are both multi-layered and memorable. He’s a delight to work with, and his music is unique and well-crafted to each piece he scores.”
Director, Sound Services, abcmouse.com
“Tim’s compositions for my documentaries about the classic film Twelve O’Clock High are truly noteworthy. These are not simple or generic-sounding cues, quite the contrary. Instead, Tim shared my passion and was intent on helping me to tell the various, compelling stories that were borne from the project. The music in the documentaries is powerful and affective, and is, as a result, brilliantly unforgettable.”

“When people think of Walt Disney, they think of great storytelling. I’ve worked with Tim on over 100 projects where our main objective was to tell great stories that get our guests excited about coming to our theme parks and resorts. Tim has an uncanny ability to turn a composition for a simple marketing piece into a mini film score.”

“Tim Curran is fluent in two languages. He effortlessly speaks the language of the composer; however, more important to me is his ability to speak the language of the musical layperson. If I have an idea about a certain sound or tempo or instrumentation, he is able to make sense of the horrible sounds I make in an effort to make up for my lack of a musical vocabulary. Tim adds not only value to whatever he is working on, but a whole layer of emotion and depth through his musical talents.”
Sr. Manager, Content Development
“As an animation producer and director, I’ve had the pleasure of working with and knowing Tim for over a decade, and a more hard-working, knowledgeable, personable and collaborative composer you’d be hard pressed to find. He has a great sense of story in his approach to writing his music, and as a collaborator, Tim brings to the creative table his knowledge of past masters of the craft, along with his down-to-earth personality and sense of humor.”

“I have played on Tim’s scoring sessions and am impressed at how well he is able to capture the feel of the movie in his composing. He is very efficient during the sessions, and the inevitable problems are quickly solved. I always look forward to seeing Tim and working with him in the creative process of recording.”

“I have throughly enjoyed recording Tim’s music and working with him. His music is always engaging to play. Tim’s wide stylistic compositional palette not only serves the project perfectly, it has allowed me to use my diversity as a pianist. He is a great professional, warm-hearted and a delight to work with. He brings out my best.”

Nah, let’s not do that. If you know me, you already know about me, so you can skip ahead two spaces.
If you don’t know me, and are thinking of hiring me, you’re probably not going to do that based on the knowledge that I got my first guitar when I was 6. Want to hear my singularly interesting story of a guy with a dream who moves to L.A. to pursue it? Of course you do.
No you don’t. Plus, I saw recently where people don’t read anymore anyway.
Or if they do, they only have the attention for super-short paragraphs.
If you’re still reading this, I’m impressed with your stamina. But if you want to know who I am and what I’m about, let’s chat about that after you’ve checked out my work, my credits, and all the other stuff that’s likely going to influence you a lot more than reading about how I first discovered my muse while playing “The Mexican Hat Dance” in a 5th-grade band recital.
