Music Portfolio Playlists:
Paul Rieck graduated in May 2020 with a Bachelors of Specialized Studies from Ohio University with a degree in Music Methodology and Film Scoring. During his time there he took classes in teaching, conducting, film scoring, acting, film making, mixing techniques, orchestration, arranging and composing music of various styles.
Paul has worked to obtain flexibility and challenges to composing for multiple different genres of films that broaden his spectrum of musical scoring. Listening to films scores at a very young age, Paul’s passion of films and their music has grown to understand how equal the score and footage are a dyad. He utilizes this notion into his music and strives to form this bond allowing their connections, emotions and the flow of the story to ring through to the audiences. Many of the films he has worked on have premiered at different festivals and are currently on YouTube to view.
