Scott Starrett

Composer for television, film, and theatre

Scott Starrett has composed original music for award-winning feature films and television. According to The Boston Globe, his music possesses "an attractively dappled quality as contrasting gestures interrupt and overlap each other."

Starrett is currently creating the score for VH1's scripted drama Daytime Divas. Other recent composing credits include Fox's medical drama The Mob Doctor, NBC's conspiracy-thriller series The Event, as well as the score for all six seasons of Lifetime's dramatic-comedy series Drop Dead Diva. Starrett's film credits include scoring the HBO feature Dim Sum Funeral and the Apollo astronaut feature documentary The Wonder of It All. He has also collaborated as a composer-orchestrator with Michael Kamen on HBO's From the Earth to the Moon and MTV's Bryan Adams Unplugged as well as creating musical arrangements for Lisa Loeb.

As a concert composer, Starrett's works have been performed by the Boston-based Metamorphosen Chamber Orchestra, the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, and the Juilliard Symphony. After graduating from Stanford University, Starrett earned a Master of Music degree from The Juilliard School, where he studied under John Corigliano, Academy Award winning composer of The Red Violin. He was then awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study music composition in Rome, Italy, under the sponsorship of Hans Werner Henze. Starrett was a MacDowell Colony Fellow and is currently a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP); the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop; and the Dramatists Guild.
