My name is Tim Beck. I have been an active member of Stage 32 for several years, but have yet to formally introduce myself. Here is a section from my Bio:
"Tim is a composer based in Los Angeles, California. A native of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Tim graduated from Duquesne University in 2012, earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Composition from the Mary Pappert School of Music. While attending there, Tim studied with the likes of David Stock (founder of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble), Mike Tomaro, David Cutler, Mark Koch, Benjamin Binder, and Eliyahu Tamar.
As a composer, Tim has written several styles of music, including chamber music, jazz, orchestral, electronic, pop/rock, and film scores. He has scored for several works including short films, commercials, documentaries, and 4 feature films. In 2012, Tim was selected as a winner for the Pittsburgh Festival Orchestra Collegiate Composers Scholarship for his piece, "Sustantivo," duet for piano and oboe. In 2013, Tim was selected as one of nine emerging film composers to attend the "Composing for the Screen" workshop in New York City, hosted by BMI and run by composer Rick Baitz. In 2015, Tim assisted with tech work and played guitar for the score of the major motion picture "Jem and the Holograms", presented by Universal Pictures. In 2016, Tim's original film score to the feature film "On The Brain" was nominated for Best Musical Score for a Feature Film at the Idyllwild International Festival for Cinema. In 2017, Tim began work on his first contemporary ballet, titled "The Governess", created by Bianca Crespo with choreography by Angela Todaro."
