Emmy nominated composer Amin Bhatia has a dual career both as synth programmer and orchestral film composer. His prizes at the Roland International Synthesizer competitions won him international fame in his youth, leading to projects with David Foster and Steve Porcaro.
His "Interstellar Suite" (Capitol/Cinema) became a landmark album for analog synthesizers when he created an orchestral epic without using any samplers. The sequel "Virtuality" is the first album to be endorsed by the Bob Moog Foundation. Of note is "Bolero Electronica," Ravel's masterpiece performed on 75 years of synthesizers in chronological order.
Though he now uses real players and orchestral ensembles in his writing, his days with a Roland sequencer and a Minimoog have given him an unusual insight into the subtleties of arranging and orchestration for both real and imagined instruments.
Film credits include "John Woo's Once a Thief," "Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees" (IMAX), "Get Ed" (Disney), and the hit TV series "Flashpoint" on CBS and CTV.
Amin has worked as a consultant and programmer for many synthesizer companies including Roland, Q Sound, Arturia and now Spectrasonics.
