Nathan Halpern is a Brooklyn-based composer, recently named one of Indiewire's ‘Composers to Watch.’ The 2017 Oscar Shortlist for Best Documentary includes two films he scored (HOOLIGAN SPARROW and THE WITNESS). His score for RICH HILL, winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary, was praised as "one of the best non-fiction scores we've heard in years" (Indiewire). He scored The Emmy and Peabody Award-winning MARINA ABRAMOVIC: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT (HBO Films). In 2015 he re-teamed with RICH HILL co-director Andrew Droz Palermo for the Kiernan Shipka-starring supernatural thriller ONE AND TWO (IFC Films), which Variety called "hauntingly scored." In 2016 he scored RICH HILL co-director Tracy Droz Tragos’ ABORTION: STORIES WOMEN TELL (HBO FILMS). Upcoming scores include Amanda Sharp's STICKY NOTES starring Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) and Ray Liotta, Michelle Ferrari’s RACHEL CARSON (PBS/AMERICAN EXPERIENCE), and Liz Garcia’s ONE PERCENT MORE HUMID (starring Juno Temple).
