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’ 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

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

Del Harvey
Film Score Monthly

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

Hollywood Reporter

“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

“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

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

Pat Griffith

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


“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

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

Mark Hasan
Film Score Monthly

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

Dave Alvin

“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)

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

David Raksin

“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 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!
