Music  by composer John Graves (ASCAP)

 

From action to abstraction, suspense to comedy, John's musical repertoire covers a broad spectrum. Currently Supervising Sound Designer at Diamond Game in Chatsworth, his cues have been used in trailers for Inside Man, Chronicles of Riddick, and Bourne Supremacy. John has scored a handful of full features, including "Le Magique", "Savannah's Ghost", "Tokyo Mafia", "Kill or Be Killed", and "Sisters of Sin". He has also sound designed and scored over 20 games for Diamond Game, as well as a plethora of trailers and short films. 

His musical studies began on a Steinway Grand at age 2. John's parents were also music professionals, and his dad Leonard Graves worked in the movie music business in Hollywood for many years. This gave John an early start at some major studio sessions, providing the opportunity to meet and work with composers such as Lalo Schifrin and Quincy Jones. John's mother Patricia was a concert pianist and a prolific music teacher.

John studied Moog 35 under Dan Wyman, Fairlight with Beverly Grigsby at CSUN, and Film Scoring with Don Ray at UCLA.

John has been a supervising sound editor on a number of award-winning, independent films, and his career trajectory has included special visual effects work at Lucasfilm.

"I think you did a great job. It's very good, and I liked it very much. That's just what we needed, and 
I think it's going to have some impact."

~ David Menukian, Producer, The Ballroom Dance

"I love the soundtrack. I couldn't be happier. It's perfect. I'm just thrilled to death...I think you
did a great job." 
~  John Campbell, Producer-DIrector "Li"


" I'm really impressed with your work.   I hear a lot of fairly adept composer-performer-recording 
artists, but they all sound amateurish. You sound like you composed a score and hired an orchestra."
~ Paul Mulcahy

"Your work is phenomenal!"     ~ Iancu Tomlinson
