David Raiklen ’98

David Raiklen ’98 writes to tell us, “As a composer and producer, I’ve worked for major studios including Sony, Fox, Disney, Sprint, Mattel, Warner Bros., and PBS, plus many independent productions. My projects star Elliott Gould, Doug Jones, Blythe Danner, and Martin Sheen. I made the New York Film Critics Top Ten with the documentary Heist, the short list for an Academy Award for Worth, and Mia: A Dancer’s Journey won the Emmy. My compositions have been performed at the Hollywood Bowl and Disney Hall. I also host a successful radio program Classical Fan Club where guests include Yo-Yo Ma and John Williams, and was host and leader of The Academy of Scoring Arts seminars. Currently I’m producing and composing for a series of epic adventures titled Space Command, composing for live concerts, and producing Augmented Reality 360 experiences.”
