Austin Wintory is a Grammy-nominated and two-time BAFTA-winning composer who has had a career straddling film, video games, and the stage. He has scored over 50 features, including several Sundance hits (Grace, Captain Abu Raed), and over 30 games, netting him 7 BAFTA nominations, 2 wins of the peer-voted ASCAP Composer’s Choice Awards, and a slew of other industry accolades.
His work, which ranges from intimate indies like Journey to massive blockbusters like Assassin’s Creed, is often noted for its unique perspective and unusual approach. Austin’s scores frequently employ experimental ensembles and recording techniques, merged with distinctive solo musicians from around the globe. Many of his game scores have enjoyed success in concert upon release, with performances all over the world including a recent presentation of his music before an audience of nearly 15,000 in Krakow, Poland, and a performance by the Royal Philharmonic at Royal Albert Hall in London as part of the first-ever BBC Gaming Proms concert. Austin’s most recent feature films include Bullet Head starring Adrien Brody and John Malkovich, Burt Reynolds’ final film, The Last Movie Star, Ross McCall’s acclaimed prison drama A Violent Man, and Netflix’s limited series Thai Cave Rescue.
Susie Seiter is a prolific composer, conductor, and orchestrator for film, TV, video games, and live concerts. She recently completed co-composing the Netflix limited series drama Thai Cave Rescue with Austin Wintory. Seiter is best known for orchestrating and conducting remarkably successful orchestral concert world tours such as Evanescence: Synthesis, Lindsey Stirling’s Orchestra, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, and Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions. Combined, these tours have been performed more than 400 times by some of the world’s most respected orchestras. In 2017-2018 alone, she conducted over 80 orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic at London’s Apollo Hammersmith, The Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Madison Square Garden, the National Symphony Orchestra at Wolf Trap, and the Sydney Symphony at the iconic Sydney Opera House. Seiter excels in leading popular symphonic film concerts such as Frozen Live, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Pixar in Concert, and Toy Story Live. Last year she conducted the Paramount blockbuster hit Snake Eyes: A GI Joe Origin Story, Netflix’s holiday favorite 8-Bit Christmas, and the Disney+ Zootopia series. She is excited to appear this fall and winter with Toy Story Live, Muppets Christmas Carol, Coco, and Nightmare Before Christmas live in various cities.
Also a frequent collaborator with Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory, Seiter orchestrated The Banner Saga series and his BAFTA-nominated score, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. Her orchestrations for the Journey Traveler’s Symphony debuted at Royal Albert Hall this summer. Susie was on the orchestration team for Disney’s Encanto, Universal Pictures’ film Minions, and Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak.
