Pianist & Composer

Dustin O’Halloran is an award-winning composer and pianist. His music has brought us to tears at least 10 times and we aren’t afraid to tell you about it. Dustin composed the theme song to the popular series, Transparent and he had us hooked before the show even got started.

He has also scored for movies such as Marie Antionette, Like Crazy and more recently the Oscar-winning film, Lion. Indiewire called Dustin, “One of the most gifted composers of the 21st century” and we couldn’t agree more. His solo albums, Piano Solos I & II, Vorleben and Lumiere are just as inspiring as his scores.

Dustin spends his time living and creating in Los Angeles and Berlin. |  @dustinohalloran



We asked Dustin to chose a word that ends with -ity that best represents him.

I think that it's important to stay curious and keep discovering in order to evolve as an artist. For me, that means learning about new techniques and instrumentation, but also visiting new places and being exposed to other art forms and ways of thinking.
