Adam Barber is an American composer and producer located in Los Angeles[2]. He works in the production of music for films, television, records, concert works and commercials.

Early life[edit]

At the age of 7, Adam began studying traditional piano technique in Kingman, Arizona, where he also attended Kingman High School. Between 1989 and 1993, [3] he performed in the high school jazz band, multiple choirs including acapella, plays and musicals.

In 1993, Adam began studying at Mesa Community College, with a focus in theory, composition, piano and jazz studies. He later transferred to Arizona State University, studying composition with Dr. Rodney Rogers, Jazz Studies with Professor Chuck Marohnic as well as continuing classical performance studies, eventually earning a Bachelor of Music from Arizona State University. In 1999, a move to Los Angeles allowed further graduate studies in composition and film music at the University of California, Los Angeles, Herb Alpert School of Music, where he received a Master of Music. In 2010, after a referral from composer Joseph Trapanese, Adam had the opportunity to teach the Electronic Music and Composition curriculum summer course at UCLA's Herb Alpert School of Music. Joseph was unavailable to teach the summer term due to professional obligations.[4][5]


Adam's collaborations include writer, director and producer, Anthony DiBlasi as well as writing/producers Adam Gierasch and Jace Anderson. In 2013, he was introduced to Adam and Jace by Seven Arts Pictures producer Peter Hoffman and subsequently composed and produced the score for their film, Fractured. The original title of the film was, "Schism" but changed during post production. The Fractured collaboration led to another film score by Adam and Jace, [House by the Lake] and the eventual inclusion of Adam Barber in the stoner doom band The Stoning.[6]

His collaboration with Anthony DiBlasi, another fixture in the Los Angeles film community, has spanned five films. The first four: Exhume, Her Last Will, Most Likely to Die, and their initial film collaboration and indy underground hit, Last Shift.[7] In 2018, their most recent film, Extremity, an independent thriller horror is being released by Epic Pictures Group.[8]

In 2018, Adam had the great fortune of producing, writing and supervising the score to, London Fields[9]. The film, released September 20th, 2018 in Russia and will be released in the US October 26th, 2018. The score features over 80 minutes of original music written by Adam Barber in his Los Angeles studio. The score album will be released digitally by INgrooves, late 2018. During post-production, London Fields, was in search of a re-recordist and Adam was able invite his friend, Chris Jenkins[10] to finish the sound on the film; Chris is a three time Academy Award Winner for post production sound.

Adam's early career is marked by technically supporting and assisting many composers in Hollywood. His most notable assisting position's have been with Hans Zimmer, Christopher Young, Danny Elfman and Alex Wurman.


When not pursuing composition and music production he is an avid urban farmer. In 2015 French television TF1, featured him and his garden, The Urban Potager, in a 50 Minutes Inside segment, Le nouveau visage de Los Angeles; produced by Sarah Amrouni, an episode viewed by approximately 4 million French viewers.[11][12]

In addition to French television, he, his wife and garden have been featured in the Japanese lifestyle magazine Casa Brutus[13] [14]and the independent documentary, Urban Fruit, directed and produced by Roman Zenz.[15][16]
