Since Graeme Revell first appeared on the film scoring scene with his chilling score to the Australian thriller Dead Calm, he has become one of the most sought-after and innovative film composers in the world.
Revell has collaborated with a wide range of film makers including George Miller, John Woo, Michael Mann, Ted Demme, Philip Noyce, and Robert Rodriguez.
A keen observer of both traditional ethnic music and natural sound, Revell started his career after picking up on rhythms in patient vocalizations at an Australian mental hospital where he was working as an orderly. He incorporated recordings of the patients into his music. His experiments with recordings of insects and industrial machinery led him to create the early industrial rock band SPK.
Revell's film scoring career has covered a wide range of styles and genres for such films as The Crow, Chinese Box (Winner-Best Score at the Venice Film Festival), The Negotiator, Daredevil, and Sin City.
