‘Dexter’ Composer Dan Licht & TV Host Rick Adams

Dan Licht is the Composer of the Emmy Award winning show, Dexter, and hugely popular video games, Silent Hill and Dishonored,

One of Daniel Licht’s first experiences as a musician resulted in him hanging out with Miles Davis and playing jazz with Don Cherry in New York City.

Licht continued to develop as a musician by playing around the world. In Germany, Holland, and Northern Europe he performed and composed music for theatre and dance companies, then Licht went on to Japan and Indonesia where he participated in Gamelan orchestras on the islands of Java and Bali. These travels broadened Licht’s definition of music.

You may be surprised to know that knives, duct tape, wine glasses, saws, scissors, and even human bones (!) have been used as instruments and recorded at his studio. It was his good friend and colleague, composer Christopher Young, (Spiderman III), who beckoned Licht west. Once in Hollywood, Licht began collaborating with directors and producers on a variety of projects such as the Stephen King’s thriller, Thinner; Ben Stiller’s drama, Permanent Midnight and the Bradley Cooper comedy, Kitchen Confidential.

Rick Adams has been in the spotlight for about 20 years (though thankfully he’s also been allowed to wash and eat too!).

Born in the UK and living in the US, Rick has worked on both sides of the Atlantic for some of the biggest TV Networks, Channels and shows (BBC, CBS, NICK, Aol and so on!).

He is also a talented Producer and Writer having created original series and works for the BBC, National Geographic and Nat Geo Kids.
