Composer


 
Scott Keever is a composer who, over the last twenty years, has had experience in a wide variety of styles, from orchestral to jazz to Americana to electronic. He has also focused on ethnic/world folk music in his work, wherein he has specialized in Irish/Celtic, North African, Eastern European and Middle Eastern styles.
 
Since 2002, under Human Soundtrack Productions, Scott has composed music for radio (KFAI news – 90.3FM Minneapolis), theatre (Cromulent Shakespeare Company), short films (Killing Joke Productions), podcasts (Burn and Brew), and feature length documentaries (Silo Way Films). He has been a music director/arranger for Brave New Workshop (comedy improv), Idiot Box (multi-media sketch comedy) and Blue Umbrella Productions (musical theatre).
 
Scott graduated with a B.A. in Music from the University of Minnesota – School of Music, where he focused on Composition and Guitar. He studied Composition under the guidance of Alex Lubet and Doug Geers.
 
In 2012, as a member of Balkan/Eastern European ensemble Orkestar Bez Ime (OBI), Scott won the Emerging Composers Award from the American Composers Forum. The ACF award inspired the OBI album “Unveiled – Live At The Celtic Junction” (2014), for which Scott contributed two pieces. He has produced a full-length solo album “Salieri’s Revenge” (2010) featuring his electro-acoustic compositions. He has also written and co-produced an album with the ambient-electronica group Pirates of Dreamtime (2013).
