Trevor Gureckis is an award-winning composer and producer based in NYC, whose work spans film, pop, and concert music genres. His music often draws on his classical and production background, fusing electronics and live instruments in unique ways. As a film composer, his music ranges from thriller, horror, and epic dramas. He has worked with M. Night Shyamalan for two seasons of the Apple TV+ hit Servant. The series is a critical success, with The Hollywood Reporter noting that the series is “propelled by a score that goes between lullaby simplicity and experimental cacophony.” The second season is now streaming on Apple TV+ and season three is currently in production. Up next, the composer has teamed up with Shyamalan once again, for his highly anticipated psychological horror film Old, set to release July 23, 2021. Most recently, he scored Neil Burger’s latest science fiction film, Voyagers, released by Lionsgate in April 2021. In 2020, Gureckis composed the score for the BBC World Service documentary podcast The Bomb and also composed the main title theme to the Amazon thriller series Hunters, created by David Weil and produced by Jordan Peele. In 2019, Trevor composed the music for the Warner Brothers and Amazon Studios film adaptation of epic drama, The Goldfinch, directed by John Crowley. The score was critically acclaimed; described as “exceptionally fresh and disarmingly different” by The Hollywood Reporter and “stunning” by Paste Magazine. Other notable works include Blumhouse’s Bloodline and HBO’s Vice: Raised in the System.
Trevor produced the electro-pop band My Great Ghost, which is featured on the Philip Glass remix album Rework_ spearheaded by Beck. In 2019, Trevor’s solo album of instrumental and electronic music entitled Corte was released on Supertrain Records. Trevor is a co-owner and ECD of Found Objects, an NYC-based artist collective.
