Robert Safir is a versatile composer with a musical palette that ranges from acoustic guitar to full orchestrations of “epic proportions.” Robert has crafted music for film, television, documentaries, animation, interactive entertainment, and commercials. In addition to his film scores, some of Robert’s recent works have been heard on ABC Television, The Discovery Channel, E! Entertainment, The Biography Channel, BET, The Learning Channel, Spike TV, and others.

Robert Safir began his career in the pro music biz at the tender age of 17, placing original songs with Top 40 artists The Standells and getting his own record deals as an artist, first with GNP Crescendo, and later, ABC Records.

Later on, Robert founded Track Record Studios in Los Angeles, where he engineered or produced for The Association, Canned Heat, Brian Wilson, Chad Stuart, Lauren Wood, and others. He also co-produced tracks with late music industry legend Curt Boettcher – and Curt recorded one of Safir’s unique acoustic guitar-based originals entitled “California Music” for RCA Records.

Robert is active in the music industry in a variety of ways. As an author, Robert has been staff writer for Keyboard Magazine, as well as writing articles for other industry pubs such as Mix Magazine, Songwriter, Cue, and The Hollywood Reporter. As a panelist, he has presented at The Computer Game Developer’s Conference, AES (Audio Engineering Society), Mix ‘99, and California Lawyers for the Arts.

Robert relocated to Los Angeles (where he is originally from) and is currently taking on a variety of interesting scoring projects.
