Andrew Prahlow’s music focuses on larger-than-life, emotive soundscapes with a core of chamber-ensemble minimalism, hoping to create a sense of familiar nostalgia for the listener.

He began his career in music as an intern at John Powell’s studio while completing his studies at the Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television (SMPTV) Graduate Program at USC. From 2011-2014, he assisted on the music of ‘The Legend of Korra’ for Jeremy Zuckerman and also on ‘Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness’ for Jeremy Zuckerman and Benjamin Wynn. In 2015, his music was featured in trailers for Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian’.  From 2015-2016, Andrew composed ambient guitar soundscapes for the Madden NFL franchise. In 2017, Andrew wrote an arrangement of ‘Be Our Guest’ for the 2017 Academy Awards ‘Beauty and the Beast’ TV spot, and the score to the Mobile VR Game of the Year, ‘Eclipse: Edge of Light’.


Andrew also writes for mainstream trailer campaigns, including ‘Star Wars’, ‘Avengers,’ ‘Blade Runner 2049’, and ‘Star Trek’.

In addition to his solo composing, Andrew often collaborates with composer Mark Petrie. Their music has received placements in campaigns for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Game of Thrones, FIFA 2015, LEGO, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Earth to Echo, Insurgent, and Selma.
