FILM & TV COMPOSER
Corey Wallace is an LA based film and television composer with over 15 years of experience & nearly 100 credits to his name. Recent projects include Jamie Winterstern’s storm-chasing, coming-of-age adventure film SUPERCELL, starring Alec Baldwin and the late Anne Heche, and the Comedy Central original comedy-horror CURSED FRIENDS, starring Harvey Guillen (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS), Jessica Lowe (MINX), and Nicole Byer, with Will Arnett, Ken Marino, Nikki Glaser, and Nicole Richie.
Recent accolades include Best Original Score-Animated film at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards for MIME YOUR MANNERS, and Best Score at Grimmfest for the horror film ARTIK - a “symphony of broken instruments”.
Upcoming projects include the third collaboration with Dan Glaser on his Viking horror film AFTERWALKER, Patch Animation's debut film 'STACHED, and a collaboration with Tyler Bates on a Blumhouse picture.
Wallace has also contributed additional music to Blumhouse’s THE FIRST PURGE, and he has worked on AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD, TNT’s SNOWPIERCER, ABC’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., Apple TV+’s SEE, ABC’s QUANTICO, as well as the newest installment in the AAA game series CALL OF DUTY: VANGUARD. Upcoming contributions include the Netflix film WE HAVE A GHOST, starring David Harbour and Anthony Mackie, directed by Christopher Landon.
Wallace’s versatile musical style is equally at home with the traditional orchestra as well as with modern electronic and sound design scores. His orchestral approach focuses on melody and colorful orchestration, notable in his fantasy score to THE HYBRIDS FAMILY, Best Soundtrack winner at the 2018 Oniros Film Awards, as well as in his extensive work in animation. Many of Wallace’s horror/thriller scores heavily use custom sound design created through the manipulation and mutilation of organic sound sources, creating a distinct, other-worldly yet natural sound.
Wallace graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (2008) and the University of Southern California’s prestigious Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television (SMPTV) program in 2009, going on to assist film scoring icon Christopher Young (DRAG ME TO HELL, SPIDER-MAN 3). Wallace was honored as a participant in the 2010 ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop where he received the David Rose Scholarship. In 2011, he worked on several projects for Anthony E. Zuiker (creator, CSI), including a collaboration with Academy Award winner Robert Legato. After scoring the indie hit SHADOW PEOPLE in 2012 for director Matthew Arnold (EMERALD CITY), the pair made their network television debut on the critically acclaimed NBC thriller/drama SIBERIA. Other long-time collaborators include director Ilya Rozhkov, whose ground- breaking virtual reality action film AGENT EMERSON uses an intense and ambitious score seamlessly blending acoustic and electronic elements, featuring world-class cellist Tina Guo.
