Jonathan Geer


Jonathan Geer creates a sonic landscape that sounds like Royksopp, James Horner and Bjork stuffed into a high-powered blender and pureed against their will.


Jonathan was born and raised in the epic state of Texas. He spent his formative years in Waxahachie, the cultural and social hub of the state. It was there that he finely honed his creative skills that would lay the groundwork for his future career. He graduated with a BA in Film Scoring from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA in 2001 and has been collaborating with up-and-coming independent film directors in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

Jonathan’s music inspires the senses and creates a strong sense of atmosphere. His genre-defying style gathers together many disparate influences including Bjork, Chopin, Coldplay, Royksopp, John Williams, Thomas Newman and others. You might find him writing a piano concerto one day and an electronic trip-hop ballad filled with mouth noises the next.

Most recently, Jonathan has released his debut album, Essex, inspired by the story of the Nantucket whaleship of the same name. He has also completed work on Robert Dahlem’s Homeless! – The Musical and continues to work with Dahlem on his short film, Seventy cents, and his feature, Dead End Drag. Jonathan’s fondness for video game music led him to work with Stephen Kennedy on Project Majestic Mix: A Tribute to Nobuo Uematsu. Jonathan has also collaborated with Chris Tonick on Duello a Fiume Styx and The Pistis Gene. He also composed the music for an internet promo trailer of I Heart Huckabees featuring Naomi Watts.
