Justin R. Durban @ Skywalker Sound

Justin’s strong desire to work on anything involving films led him to pick up a keyboard, find some music software, and begin to write and score his own music for his own movie projects. He gained recognition by giving away his music to anyone that found a place for it within their films. This was accomplished through the online entity called, “Edgen” (pronounced: edge – in). This working partnership and “Pay it Forward” thinking with filmmakers lead to a growing body of work that has spanned and grown tremendously over the years.

Justin continues to write music for the boutique trailer music company, X-Ray Dog Music, located in Burbank. By writing orchestral music through X-Ray Dog, his music has been in recent campaigns such as; "Muppets: Most Wanted", Disney's "BRAVE", "How to Train Your Dragon", Relativity Media’s “Immortals”, James Cameron’s “AVATAR”, FOX’s “Chronicles of Narnia 3 – The Voyage of the Dawn Treader”, Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”, “Battle for Terra”, 20th Century Fox, “Australia”, Touchstone Pictures, “Miracle at Saint Anna”, Warner Brothers, “Harry Potter and Order of the Phoenix”, and Universal’s “HULK”, and “Mummy3″ theatrical and TV trailers. He has also written for national commercials such as "SunnyD", "Mercedes", "Phillips", and has composed film scores for the "SyFy Channel", "Lifetime Channel", and Numerous video game titles. He has 20+ feature film scores under his belt along with hundreds of short films from directors and producers around the world.

Along with his talent for writing emotional music for film, he has a strong passion for the visual arts including Directing, Visual FX, Compositing, Editing, Web, Digital Art, & Graphic Design. His music can best be described as “Upliftingly Dark” Cinematic Film Music with Epic Intimacy. He plays by ear but the music ultimately resonates through his heart.
