Pru Montin is an Australian-LA based composer and sound designer with a gift at sampling. She is known for creating freshly unique and evolving sonic worlds through discovered means, turning found objects (chair squeaks or anything found lying on the studio floor) into meticulously sculpted emotional musical journeys. Through her originality, she has been featured as a "Composer to Watch" by ASCAP and awarded the coveted biannual APRA AMCOS Professional Development Award for Film and Television in 2019. She was also the 2016 recipient of the prestigious Brian May Scholarship which supports a promising young Australian film composer to complete a Master's of Film Scoring at NYU and kickstart their career in the US. Whilst in the US she is fast becoming a sought after collaborator having worked with Hollywood composer's Cliff Martinez (The Neon Demon, Drive), Adam Peters (Icarus, Snowden), Michael A Levine (Cold Case, Siren) and Andrew Hewitt (The Double, Villains). She has also collaborated with acclaimed director Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary, Like a Virgin). Her film music has screened internationally (including the award-winning black comedy Heck! at Cannes and Palm Springs) and can be heard currently on the Australian ABC shows, Dream Gardens and Club Arak. In 2012, Pru received significant funding from the Australian Film Television and Radio School to develop a full size interactive music game myOrchestra, an exploration into creating an environment that uses gesture to compose through the conductor-like control of an orchestra using timbre, structure and dynamics as its main parameters. A beta version was presented at conferences including AGSC and APRA's Glories of the Score in 2013.
