William Ryan Fritch is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has scored and contributed music to numerous narrative and documentary films (e.g. the Independent Spirt award winning The Waiting Room) that have been critically acclaimed and premiered at film festivals such as Cannes, SXSW, Tribeca, and Sundance. His music has been featured in television shows and miniseries for CBS, IFC, Showtime, Discovery, AMC, and PBS, and in national ad campaigns and PSA’s. He operates out of his studio in Petaluma, California that was built in a great sounding, converted chicken barn from the early 1900′s. From this studio he is able to produce and realize film compositions using real, live acoustic instrumentation and analog recording processes that range from intimate, sparse songs to fully fleshed out orchestrations found in contemporary chamber music, indie rock, pop, folk, and world music as an entirely solo endeavor. Below is a collection of trailers and excerpts from some of the film’s he has scored.
