"There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot." – John Cage
Aaron Reihs is a composer and saxophonist living in Los Angeles, California. With a background in jazz and film scoring, Aaron uses woodwinds, synthesizers, electronics, and voice to create dreamy, atmospheric soundscapes. Aaron's work explores using instrumental music not as only a means to escape, but rather as a tool to dive deeper into how we experience our environments and ourselves, and to ultimately bring us closer to the non-musical soundscapes we exist in.
Aaron has worked with numerous film directors, most recently composing the score for the short Willy Goes Way Back featuring Efron Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite), and served as the in-house composer at the therapeutic VR company AppliedVR.
Cinema Subconscious, released in 2021 on SoulfulXNature, is Aaron's first publicly-released EP, and can be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, and Bandcamp.
Aaron is also a Teaching Artist at Heart of Los Angeles, and offers lessons in saxophone, piano, improvisation, composition, and music production privately.
