Arranger, Orchestrator, Composer, Performer
Kyle Gordon is a Los Angeles based composer/arranger whose inventive and genre-fusing style is quickly gaining recognition in the symphonic world. With a background in classical, jazz, folk, pop, and rock music, Kyle is always exploring the connections between traditional and contemporary music styles. In 2019, Kyle joined the esteemed team of copyists and orchestrators at Joann Kane Music Service where he began orchestrating and engraving for film. Working on titles such as Star Wars IX, Frozen 2, The Simpsons, and BBC Seven Worlds, he had the opportunity to learn from some of today’s orchestral masters. In addition to his work in film and in the concert hall, Kyle has worked as an arranger with esteemed producer Jimmy Haslip arranging and orchestrating several albums with more to come.
A proponent of melodic, harmonically-rich music, Kyle’s work as an arranger has thrilled concert going audiences. In addition to his writing, Kyle performs regularly as a bassist, mandolinist, and conductor. In 2018, he was invited to perform a newly penned arrangement alongside legendary bassist Jeff Bradetich at Carnegie Hall. In 2017, Kyle was awarded the Sherman/Barsanti inspiration award at the University of North Texas for his project “Old Sights/New Sounds” which featured exciting new scores to accompany silent films by Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Old Sights/New Sounds has been developed and refined over the years and is now reintroduced as Symphonic Mayhem!
Kyle is currently an Adjunct Professor of Music at Tarrant County College in Fort Worth, Texas and maintains an active writing, performing, and teaching schedule.
