Jonathan J. Beaudette
Music and Sound Design
Jonathan J. Beaudette is a composer, producer and sound designer. At age 6, Beaudette grew up learning film scores on the family piano “by ear” where he found his first love: cinematic music. He actually performed the Main Title of Star Wars in elementary school on the recorder. Years later, film music and the piano was left on a desert road for rock music and a guitar…strangely enough, while servicing turbo-prop engines for 4 years in the U.S. Air Force. After serving his country, Beaudette studied orchestration and audio engineering, purchased gear for his studio and began recording and mixing his music. It wasn’t long before his first love came back into his life – film music – and in 2003 he moved to Los Angeles where he quickly began composing music for film trailers.
Beaudette has composed a score for the United Nations in support of the Millennium Development Goals and the 2nd Annal Youth Pre-Conference. His music has been used in major motion picture trailers like Harry Potter 7, Taken, and Poltergeist, as well as Network and Cable TV channels like ABC, CBS, Sci-Fi, and History.
Other works by Beaudette include 8 film scores such as Trim, Heels, The Exodus, and his music has been used in documentaries such as: Starring Adam West, Buffer Zone and Yolanda; and in advertising campaigns for Ogilvy & Mather. On the sound design side, Beaudette has worked on several films and a few documentaries as a rerecording mixer, ADR recordist, dialog editor and sound designer.
