California… continued

Happy to announce I just completed music & sound design for an immersive 6 hour journey through 4 of California’s iconic landmarks: from Death Valley to Mt Whitney, from the Redwoods to Big Sur… Now in the permanent exhibit “California Continued” at the Autry Museum of the American West.




I had the honor of scoring Jonny Zwick’s beautifully shot documentary film BREACH. The film exposes Iceland’s defiant participation in commercial whale harvesting against a backdrop of endangerment, worldwide protests and political intrigue.

Breach is available on Amazon, iTunes, and Hulu.


“Chris is an immensely talented composer – be it for features, commercials or anything in between. He always aims to please and you’ll never meet a nicer guy. Lots of reasons our working relationship has spanned more than a decade.”

Stu Pollard

“Composer Chris Anderson presents sound and music in perfect noir fashion.”

Del Harvey

Barry Williams

“Broad in scope, yet focused in craft, Anderson paints a series of vivid pictures, each complete of themselves; stirring and provocative as a group…”

Tommy Mars (Frank Zappa Band)

“Anderson displays the kind of musical substance one expects to find in the likes of a Mozart, Basie, Goodman, Ellington, or Wills…”

Jana Pendragon
Music Connection

“Composer Chris Anderson’s eerie score (for Treasure Island) is skillful – aptly nervy and disquieting, it gets below the surface of things.”

Hollywood Reporter

“Anderson is a young man whose name I want you to remember- you’ll be hearing a lot more about him, and not just from me.”

Rod McQuen (Beatsville/Seasons in the Sun)

Chris’ talent knows no limit…  He’s composed music from rom-coms to animation to thrillers & action.  He’s one of this first people I call when I get a new project, and an essential person I rely on through to the final mix.”

Rex Piano

Chris has an intuitive sense for what fits a scene best. His experience and skillful balance of traditional and outside-the-box techniques sets him apart. To top it off, he’s charming, a great communicator, and easy to work with – highly recommended!

Suzanne Mejean

“Anderson is a river of genius, from which I can not see the other side…”

Dave Alvin

“Morella is an unusual film, complemented by a haunting musical score of unique aural tapestry by composer Chris Anderson.”


“Adeptly avoiding horror movie clichés, Anderson’s scores for the Jack Frost films are infused with suspense & humour…”

Pat Griffith

“Many layered, intelligent writing; at one moment thought provoking and bitter-sweet, the next quirky and uniquely humorous.”

David Raksin

“Thrilling to see you at the helm of your magical calliope – you are masterful and mischievous at the same time in the most gratifying fashion.”

Nick Offerman

“He’s the ideal chameleon- able to write in various idioms, yet compose music that still represents his own style & character.”
