Hi, I'm Rob. I compose for clients 10 hours a day. Through Production Music Online, 2nd Foundation Music, and Vanacore Music, I have had the wonderful opportunity to write for Networks - ABC, NBC, CBS, Netflix, and Fox for TV hits, such as, Titan Games (Dwayne Johnson/NBC), Saturday Night Live, 2019 NBC Ironman World Championships Encore, Hallmark, American Idol 2018 (ABC), The 2018 Golden Globes, The Apprentice, American Ninja Warrior, Survivor, Fear Factor, Hell's Kitchen, Vanity Fair Confidential, Treehouse Masters, UFC, MythBusters, White Rabbit Project Series, Amazon Prime Rosebowl Parade 2017 (with Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon - hosts), Kicking and Screaming, Bear Grylles - Get out Alive, History Channel’s Haunted History, Great American Bake-off, and many other TV shows. I also composed music for many BBC earth programs, 60 Minutes (Australia), Better Homes and Garden, and The Bachelorette - Australia, X-Factor - Australia.
My music can be found on 144 TV shows (507 Episodes) - as of June 2019.
In addition to shows broadcasted in the United States, I also have shows in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Denmark Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Latvia, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, and United Kingdom.
I love what I do. It's a joy, not a job.
What we do that's unique is we create realistic orchestral music using virtual instruments. Professionals consistently ask me -- 'Where did you record those instruments?' I just smile.
We have a composition studio for surround or stereo music with enough professional sample libraries to choke a horse. We have a separate mixing studio for surround/stereo mixes or stems.
The advantage of using us is:
- Realistic ensembles of all sizes - epic orchestra, studio orchestra, chamber ensembles of all types - pop or orchestral
- A 'sense of reality' that's often more dramatic and more evocative than even 'real' instruments can provide.
- An ability to successfully communicate with clients.
Film Score reviews (Out Of Liberty) (UPDATED 3.5.20 - Score has been nominated - Utah Film Festival &Awards 2020. One of four Best Score nominations on 1,100 films submitted.)
Meridian Magazine - Mariah Proctor
"Though filmed in an astounding 11 days on the north shore of Utah lake, this film manages to bring in a few important elements of western authenticity that makes it feel like a much bigger budget film. Chief among them is the beautiful score by Robert Allen Elliott (The Saratov Approach) which has the intensity and scope to make this feel like a classic, but the subtlety and softness to give extra punctuation to the most poignant moments.
“Garrett wanted me to approach this score standing on the backs of some great ‘Western’ scores BUT he also wanted a fresh voice,” said Robert, “His ‘direction’ to me from the start was for a gritty, soul-piercing Western… something totally original. It needed to carry the film without getting in the way. And it needs to evoke a full range of emotions.”
This was a tall order, but I think he filled it."
"Robert Allen Elliott has created a moody and powerful western score that is perfectly woven into the story of this film. His music becomes another character in this story, breathing life into moments that may have been overlooked... and supporting and enhancing everything else.
It’s raw, it’s powerful, it’s haunting. It paces itself from the beginning, sometimes feeling experimental and jarring, only to have the next track open up and give you an emotional glimpse into its reserved beauty. This gorgeous theme builds on itself throughout the album until the explosive final track of LIBERTY (Main Theme). It’s all about the journey with this score.
A perfect addition for any soundtrack admirer, and a perfect score for the Autumn season approaching us. If you are a fan of Marco Beltrami, Nick Cave/Ellis Warren, Dominik Scherrer or Thomas Newman, you might want to check this out."
Jonathan Decker (LDS LIVING Magazine)
"Robert Allen Elliot’s gritty score and Jeremy Prusso’s gorgeous cinematography give the film a sheen that suggest a larger budget than it actually had. Don’t miss this one. Take your friends."
