Hi, my name is Brian Jilg (the G is silent) I am a composer living in Fairfax, Va, a suburb of Washington DC. My interests in music creation lie in the soundtrack/trailer/ ambient/ rock genres. I am working on expanding my studio portfolio and have done some work for audiobooks, book trailers, and other mediums. My goal is to compose top notch music for trailers, films, games, advertising, vlogs, YouTube, and social media campaigns.
My interests in soundtracks started at a very young age with a little known movie called Star Wars. (I was 7). I had a friend whose father had a high fidelity reel to reel setup in his living room. First taste of listening to a soundtrack, Star Wars. My imagination was captivated. The next big soundtrack in my life was The Empire Strikes Back. It was the first album I ever bought (though my first album was Billy Joel's Glass Houses!) No joke I was 10. I spent hours flying the Millenium Falcon in my father's recliner listening to the Asteroid chase scene. I could see the scenes and feel the excitement. From then on I have been a soundtrack junkie.
I am now working out of my home studio writing and producing my own music. When I write a song, I include a story, you just have to listen and let your mind imagine. Looking back on the days of the Millenium Falcon in the recliner with the soundtrack to the Empire Strikes Back blaring, I should have known then where I would end up! I am working on new music constantly to build up my library of music for personal use or licensing for projects.
Feel free to contact me for more information. I don't bite.
