Jay Israelson is a composer working in Los Angeles and New York City.

Israelson studied composition and piano at The New School in New York City. After graduating in 2002 he attended composer Karlheinz Stockhausen’s courses in Germany. He settled back in NYC where he wrote music for films, national and international tv ad campaigns, and worked as a multi-instrumentalist.

Israelson has written scores for films which have screened at Cannes, Sundance, Tribeca, SXSW, and other international film festivals, and has recently composed original music for Laura Terruso’s (Hello My Name Is Doris) film Fits and Starts. Other credits include AMC’s The Trivial Pursuits Of Arthur Banks starring Adam Goldberg and Jeffrey Tambor, IFC’s Why Stop Now starring Jesse Eisenberg, Tracy Morgan and Melissa Leo, and The Longest Week starring Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde and Billy Crudup.

Jay’s compositional strengths stem from his deep knowledge of eclectic musical languages.
