Sundance 2021 Composer Spotlight: Colin Stetson

Colin Stetson 

Film: Mayday


Over the years, Colin Stetson has worked extensively, live and in studio, with a wide range of bands and musicians including Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, TV on the Radio, Feist, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Bill Laswell, Evan Parker, The Chemical Brothers, Animal Collective, Hamid Drake, LCD Soundsystem, The National, Angélique Kidjo, Fink and David Gilmore. His astounding physical engagement with his instruments (chiefly bass and alto saxophones) produces emotionally rich and polyphonic compositions that transcend expectations of what solo horn playing can sound like. Stemming from that approach and aesthetic, he has been contributing regularly to the world of film, TV and game scoring over the past decade with such titles as Hereditary, The First, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Color Out of Space.
