Kristin   Simpson 

 

is a composer, orchestrator, arranger, sound designer and violinist based in the Los Angeles area.

    She holds a Bachelor of Music in Commercial and Media Composition from California State University, Northridge, where she studied with composer and conductor Elizabeth Sellers.

  Participation in symphony orchestras — as well as her impressions of music from such renowned films as Star Wars and such television series as Downton Abbey — have inspired her arrangements and compositions, each one with an orchestration in mind from conception.

  Simpson writes for a variety of musical genres and specializes in orchestral music. Countless films and television series have impassioned Simpson to write music that transcends the temporal realm and brings light to greater truths. Her sound design work ranges from that of short films to Doctor Who audio dramas. She is a proud co-founder of Atemporal Productions, a composer collective committed to creating music-forward content.

  A bold advocate for music programs in schools across the United States, Simpson has produced three virtual orchestras for hundreds of musicians of all ages. She teaches private composition lessons and group classes on media music at the Claremont Community School of Music.
