Brian Arbuckle




Los Angeles, California



Brian is currently scoring the feature film, "Gas Station Jesus," directed by Robert Kevin Townsend. The film deals with an array of current topics, such as: domestic abuse, abortion, religion, and ones' quest for personal faith.

The film stars Lori Heuring and Patrick Bergin. His music is also featured in film trailers, such as the recent Warner Brother's release of "Space Cowboys."

Recent television credits include documentaries for Animal Planet and VH-1's "Behind the Music."

Brian's compositions can be heard, not only on the moving image, but the concert stage as well. "Songs on Death and War," based on his own texts, along with poems by A.E. Housman, Hugh MacDiarmid and Robert Herrick, heads a list of frequently performed concert works.

"The Wall That Heals," a patriotic composition honoring the men and women that died in Vietnam, was commissioned for the official Traveling Vietnam War Memorial. Though never using aleatoric compositional techniques exclusively, they are featured elements in his compositions for the experimental films, "Waiting on A Friend," and "Cain Comes Forth."

Brian is the co-founder of Tabula Rasa Films
