Leo Birenberg is a composer for film and television, he has been in the music department for his entire adult life. Hard work and a chance meeting with Christophe Beck led him to score coordination for big time movies like The Muppets, Frozen, Runner Runner, Edge of Tomorrow, Ant-Man, and The Peanuts Movie while he’s also done composition for the short lived Big Time in Hollywood Florida and Seeso original Take My Wife. Leo’s music is featured in Fox’s celebrated hybrid animation series Son of Zorn. Working across a variety of genres and platforms, he has scored Seeso’s Take My Wife, Comedy Central’s Big Time in Hollywood, FL , and the critically acclaimed documentary Red Army. Kentucky-born and Chicago-raised, Leo spent his childhood making movies and playing music, eventually combining the two by studying composition at NYU and USC. Originally a woodwind player and vocalist, Leo’s musical background is diverse, with influences from classical, jazz, bluegrass, show tunes, rock, world and electronic music. Leo currently resides in Los Angeles. When not composing, he enjoys working out, playing pennywhistle, and going on walks with his fearsome beagle, Napoleon.
