“Music feeds the soul, and Wolper’s work is cinematic and deeply moving.” – Echoes and Dust
Jon Wolper is a composer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist based in Washington, D.C. His work in production and library music primarily focuses on dark and pensive genres, from true crime and horror to poignant drones and intense action.
His work is notable for its focus on atmosphere and sound design, combining analog and modular synthesizers, guitars, bass, and various found objects with virtual sample libraries and digital production techniques.
In May 2018, Wolper won Samplehero’s cybercrime scoring competition with his track, “Hacking In.”
He has released two full-length albums and two EPs of ambient music under the moniker They Danced Like Programmed Angels.
He has also released a full-length album as one half of the indie post-rock band If Only The Trees.
