Michael Thomas Benoit

Michael Thomas Benoit is a composer, arranger, and orchestrator of music for film, stage, and concert hall. His works include two feature film scores, orchestral, instrumental, vocal, choral, piano, and handbell music. Major concert works include "Let There Be...A Symphonic Poem of Creation," and "Canticles of Nativity." He holds the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts in Composition, and is well-versed in numerous musical genres and styles, from traditional to contemporary. In his film music, Michael demonstrates a strong ability to appropriately draw out the emotion and mood of a scene and support the onscreen drama as it needs, without overtaking the dialogue. While having a very natural sense of how to score a picture, he prefers to work closely with the director to most effectively bring their ideas to life through musical backing. Open communication and exchange of ideas is key to this process. A native of Fort Worth, TX, Michael now resides in Cincinnati, OH.
