Julian Wass (born November 10, 1981) is an American film composer, producer and electronic musician from Los Angeles, California. He is the son of actors Janet Margolin and Ted Wass.


Music for films

Julian Wass first came to prominence with his score for Katie Aselton's The Freebie, which premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Subsequent scores include the Rudy-influenced brass score for Mark and Jay Duplass' The Do-Deca-Pentathlon, the marimba inflected Hit and Run, directed by Dax Shepard, and the "gauzy" analog synthesizer score for his wife Jenée LaMarque's feature debut The Pretty One.

Production work

Wass co-produced all three Fol Chen albums, and in 2011, collaborated with band mate Adam Samuel Goldman to co-produce Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Simone White's fourth album, Silver Silver. That same year, he produced three tracks for the Main Attrakionz mixtape Blackbery Ku$h; Wass would later co-produce, along with .L.W.H., their critically acclaimed album Chandelier in its entirety.

In 2013, Wass collaborated with Lefse Records to release the compilation MITSUDA, a tribute to the Japanese video game music composer Yasunori Mitsuda, which featured beats from Ryan Hemsworth, and Friendzone among others, all based on samples from Mitsuda's soundtracks.
