About

Los Angeles based composer Alistair Cooper has recorded with some of the world’s premier orchestras at locations such as Skywalker Ranch, Prague, New York City, and with the Northwest Symphonia in Seattle.

Born in London, Alistair grew up in the midlands county of Shropshire. He became engrossed in music from a young age, first taking up the guitar and later the piano. Moving to America in 2000 he attended the renowned Berklee College of Music, Boston MA, on multiple scholarships. After graduating with highest honors, Alistair began his professional career working for veteran composer Mark Leggett in Los Angeles and writing for TV documentaries.

His passion for film scoring and narrative work are displayed in the 2012 psychological thriller Fever, the ground breaking TV/webisode series Stranger Things, and the award winning short film 3 From Every 2. Alistair’s cinematic scores have also been featured in AAA videogame titles for clients such as Midway and Majesco games, including the epic action adventure Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows.

Happy to explore the extremes of the musical and aesthetic spectrums Alistair’s uber-dramatic side can be heard in the film trailers for Hollywood’s biggest studios including, Sony Pictures, Universal, 20th Century Fox and Warner Brothers, on campaigns such as Harry Potter 7 Prt2, Thor, and Malificent.

Alistair has scored numerous high profile commercials, including the 2011 Scion TC campaign and the 2010 US Census TV spot. Other notable advertising clients include AT&T, Nike, KIA, Hershey, and Cisco.
