06/14/17 Film Scoring with Adam Berry – GRAMMY® and Emmy Award-Winning Composer

Adam Berry is a GRAMMY® and Emmy award-winning composer, songwriter and producer who has scored over 500 episodes of television and 15 feature films. Adam’s career began in 1997 when he was asked to write a demo for a new Comedy Central series, “South Park.” His demo secured him the job, and his guitar and mandolin music became the signature sound of the show. Adam scored the first 4 seasons of South Park and played bass guitar in Matt Stone’s and Trey Parker’s punk band, DVDA. In 1998 Adam began working for Disney, composing scores for five series and three movies, including one of Disney’s most popular and longest-running shows, “Kim Possible.” In 2005 Adam received his first Emmy nomination for his underscore music on “Kim Possible.” Adam returned to Comedy Central in 2007 to write music for “The Sarah Silverman Program.” In addition to writing the underscore, Adam worked with Sarah and the cast, recording and producing the songs for the third season. When Dreamworks/Nickelodeon’s, “Penguins of Madagascar” went into production, Adam was hired as composer. He wrote the main title theme, the underscore and co-wrote the songs. Between 2010-2014, Adam was nominated for eight Emmy awards and two Annie awards for his work on the show, winning an Emmy in 2011 for “Outstanding Achievement in Musical Direction and Composition” and again in 2012 for “Outstanding Original Song.” In 2016 Adam co-wrote, produced and arranged the album “White Sun II” with the band, “White Sun.” The album won a GRAMMY® for Best New Age album, hit #1 on the Billboard New Age Music chart, and #2 on the Billboard World Music chart. Adam is currently working on the new Amazon series, “Lost in Oz,” and the upcoming Disney series “Big Hero 6.”
