“I love writing music for picture, becoming deeply involved in the emotion and character of a story and helping to transform it by the alchemy of sight and sound.”

“Joe Gold has captured the American cinematic idiom in his music — its elegance, freshness and breadth — continuing the legacy of Leonard Rosenman, Bernard Herrmann and the best Hollywood composers.”

—Yehuda Hanani  American-Israeli cellist

As a composer and arranger I write music in a wide spectrum of film styles and genres, for solo piano, large and small orchestras and mixed-instrument ensembles, synthesizers, and other electronic instruments. As featured here and on SoundCloud, genres include many dramatic styles and intensities of action-adventure, action hero, lyrical/heroic grandeur, horror, fantasy and magic, romantic/love, comedy, and sad/tragic, as well as location-specific styles using a hybrid of world and orchestral instruments.

As a classical pianist, I studied with Lester Hebbard, Hilda Banks Shapiro and Gili Melamed-Lev. As a jazz pianist, I studied with Garry Dial, Lee Shaw, Armen Donelian, Norman Gold, John Nazarenko, LeeAnn Ledgerwood and Sanford Gold. I also participated in the first Chick Corea Keyboard Workshop (2013) in Lenox, MA, with Chick, John Patitucci and Antonio Sanchez and studied jazz improvisation with Gary Burton at the Berklee College of Music.

I have been performing as a pianist for over twenty years with the Barrington Jazz Quartet and the Release the Penguins Jazz Quartet at many Berkshire venues: the Mahaiwe Theater, the Sandisfield Performing Arts Center, the Barn, Castle Street Café, the Starving Artist Café, Gedney Farm, Café Adam, the Darrow School, the former Pearl’s and Elm Court restaurants, the Monterey General Store, and with the Olga Dunn Dance Company at Simon’s Rock and the Dunn studios, the Heron Cove Summer Concert Series in Cheshire, as well as in homes for private parties and weddings, and for many charitable events including the Fairview Hospital galas, the Berkshire Baby Box, the Berkshire Diaper Project, and the “Warm Up the Winter Concerts for Fuel Assistance” at the Mahaiwe.

Earlier in my musical career, I performed as a trombonist with a variety of wind ensembles and orchestras, brass ensembles, rock, blues, gospel and jazz bands, the Berkshire Symphony Orchestra, and the Williamstown Summer Theater Festival (Main Stage and Second Company). 

I hold a Professional Certificate from the Berklee College of Music in Composing and Orchestrating for Film and TV.
