Screen Scoring

Benjamin Allendorf


Hello! My name is Ben Allendorf, and I'm from North Smithfield, Rhode Island. I've loved movies since I was little, and everyday when I wake up it's hard to believe I now live where they get made.

As trumpet player, I love to write sweeping orchestral scores. However, I've learned to adapt my color pallet to what's needed for the picture. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2023 with a B.M. in Film Scoring, and recently completed the Screen Scoring Program here at USC in May 2024.

I draw inspiration from greats like John Williams, James Newton Howard, Thomas Newman, Bernard Herrmann, and Harry Gregson-Williams, but I'm constantly checking out new soundscapes as they emerge.
