Fletcher Beasley is an American composer who writes music for film, television, commercials, video games, and interactive exhibits. His first solo album, Fictional Radio, was released in 2015.
His credits include Cartoon Networks’ “Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated”, Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus”, and the Emmy Award winning mini-series “World Without End”. He has also applied his musical skills to projects such as Disney’s “Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams” and NBC’s “The Zula Patrol”, both of which received Annie nominations for his music.
As a musician, Fletcher has played in ensembles varying from jazz to classical, rock, R&B, and the avant-garde. A multi-instrumentalist, he plays guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion, and he sings. He has worked as a composer, producer, player, synthesizer programmer, orchestrator, and arranger.
Fletcher is equally comfortable with the acoustic palette of the orchestra and the electronic textures of contemporary music. He has written for orchestras and small ensembles both electric and acoustic. The thread of continuity that unifies these disparate musical worlds is a strong sense of melody, a unique ear for texture, and a captivating sense of rhythm.
In 2002, he was awarded a grant from the American Composers Forum as a result of his work teaching music to incarcerated teenagers to create a ten-week music program at the Poseidon School in West Los Angeles. Currently, he teaches a course for UCLA Extension’s Film Scoring Program and courses in sound for film and music production at Santa Monica College and Cal State Long Beach. He has also taught at University of California, San Diego, Chapman University, and the Los Angeles Film School. He serves as a board member for the Society of Composers & Lyricists, the oldest organization for media composers in the United States.
Fletcher lives in Los Angeles with his wife, painter Danielle Eubank and their daughter.
He is represented by Gloria Soto of the Max Steiner Agency.
