composer and conductor
DON DAVIS, born in 1957 in Anaheim, CA, studied music and composition at the University of California and started in the film business in his early twenties. Initially he concentrated on orchestrating and conducting film music until he established himself as a composer in his own right in the early 1980s. Aside from numerous television series, he wrote the music for Haunted Hill and Jurassic Park 3 and was also responsible for the soundtrack to the Wachowskis’ 1996 debut film, Bound. He has also written close to thirty chamber music and orchestra works, and in October 2010 his opera Rio de Sangre was premiered in Milwaukee.
