Andriy Sovetov has been composing music as a hobby since middle school and became much more serious about the craft after he began listening to film scores more intently in high school. Since then he has been actively writing music for a variety of ensembles ranging from Clarinet and Bassoon Duos to full orchestral works.

Over the past 4 years, he has written well over 4 hours of music, receiving a performance for every chamber work written, and readings for all large ensemble works, including a performance of his latest wind ensemble work, “Rupture”. In that time he’s also successfully collaborated with 3 filmmakers and on the side, he enjoys writing for any scene excerpts that he can find.

Selected as a Finalist for the 2016 Morton Gould Young Composer’s Award, Andriy strives to incorporate a musical sophistication into his film scores in an attempt to be able to entertain audiences not only through visuals, but through audio as well. He believes that there isn’t a more effective dramatic medium than combining visuals with music, and with that he always attempts to elicit certain emotions from the audience of his music, regardless if he is writing for film or for the concert stage.
