The Kaboom Composition Team is a small group of composers that writes the music for every Kaboom production—students work on video game soundtracks, animation scores, film scores, commercial music, studio albums, and more.
Working closely with professional composers, students synthesize the language of visual media, develop their individual compositional voice; interpret and apply artistic aesthetics to visual media projects, and learn orchestration and arranging.
Kaboom is for young artists 15-25 year old who want to learn to be commercial composers and are interested in exploring the arts, music, and entertainment industries.
