BIO

For 2 decades Composer Daniel Alcheh (pronounced al-SHEA) has written music for concert halls, feature films and animation, documentaries, TV shows and countless commercials. Along with producer Elliot Hunt, he owns the music and audio-post house alcheh&hunt. He is also the co-founder of the music production unit Sonic Vault, which offers music, sound design and voice-over services to international content producers of kids animation and live action.

His feature film work began In 2001, when he was brought aboard as score producer for Dover Kosashvili's feature film Late Marriage, the highest-grossing Israeli film of the decade, one of Entertainment Weekly's Ten Best Films of 2002 and Newsweek's Top 15 Films of 2002. Among his recent scores are the Chinese 3D sci-fi feature Impossible, which stars several of the China’s biggest stars and opened on 20,000 screens, and The Trouble With Bliss, starring Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Lucy Liu (Elementary, Charlie’s Angels), Peter Fonda (Easy Rider), Brie Larson (Room, 21 Jump Street) and Chris Messina (Vicky Cristina Barcelona). The film’s score was released on the Sony Classical label. His upcoming score is The Tattooed Torah - an animated, holocaust tale based on a children's book and narrated by veteran actor Ed Asner. Supported by Spielberg's USC Shoah Foundation, the educational film has been dubbed and translated into several languages and features a grand score written for large orchestra and choir.

In 2012, Alcheh was named Composer-in-Residence in the Concerti in San Martino festival in Switzerland where his commissioned Septet was performed. Other notable concert works are his virtuoso violin-solo piece, “Nocturne and Aubade,” chosen as the obligatory contemporary piece for competitors to perform at the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition, and his demanding "Dying Pianos" for piano duo and recorded sound, commissioned by The Israeli Piano Duo. Alcheh's concert music is published by IMC (Israeli Music Center), and he is currently working on several American and European concert commissions and projects. 

Alcheh completed both his Bachelor's and his Master's degrees in composition at the music academy at Tel-Aviv University, and was a visiting scholar to the Music Technology Department at Chicago's Northwestern University. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
