About the speaker:
Alan Koshiyama's debut into the world of film and television music began when Universal MCA “Law & Order” producers asked him to compose the score for their independent TV pilot, “The Toothfairy Gets Greedy.” Since then, his music has entertained audiences worldwide through an impressive resume of feature film, television, video game, and national commercial work with clients:
Koshiyama’s music can be heard on the movies “National Lampoon’s Thanksgiving Reunion” for 20th Century Fox, and "The Gambler, the Girl, and the Gunslinger" for Hallmark Channel Original Movies.
Television shows include "Teenage Confidential," an ABC Afterschool Special, "Alaska's Bush Pilots" for Turner Original Production's "Wild Life Adventures" series, and "FOX News" in Denver Colorado.
A collection of Koshiyama's work can be heard at The Museum of Television and Radio in New York and Los Angeles. Variety Magazine calls Koshiyama’s music “...evocative.”
Koshiyama composed the music score for Namco's 30th Anniversary Pac-Man release for Nintendo Wii, titled "Pac-Man Party.” Video game credits include:
• Pac-Man Party
• Delta Force Land Warrior
• Mig-29 Fulcrum
• Comanche 4
• F22 Lightning 3
• Delta Force
Koshiyama is an affiliate of BMI and serves as Worship Music Director at Adventure Christian Church and Professor of Commercial Music at William Jessup University in Northern California, U.S.A.
