From A filmmaker to A film composer
Tan Onwimon is one of the leading and progressive composers of our time. The craftsmanship behind much of Onwimon’s work is like an illustrator of sound that uses musical landscapes to paint moods and visual concepts upon the hearts of his audience. Onwimon’s journey into film scoring and soundtrack music began when he was eighteen years old. During this youthful age, he joined a film school at Thammasat University in Bangkok with the hopes of becoming a successful director or screenplay writer.
Tan’s interest in film would soon change after scoring music for several of his classmates’ films, including his own. Tan’s newfound passion led him to Boston to study Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music in 2014. Since this time, Tan has worked on numerous projects and gained a strong reputation for the dexterity of his work. Tan is currently working as a professional music composer in Los Angeles.
