Ryan Lott composes music for film, theater and dance. Lott has worked with choreographers Travis Wall, Stephen Petronio and Gina Gibney. Film credits include composing and arranging for five major features, most notably The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2014), Paper Towns (2015), and Mean Dreams (2017), which premiered at Cannes and the Toronto Film Festival 2016.
In addition to his solo work, in 2007 Ryan founded Son Lux. Son Lux “works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams” (Pitchfork). With the recent additions to the band of guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, Son Lux is now a ferocious trio both live and on record. Bones (2015) is the first album documenting this new formation, and it draws from the three members’ unique and omnivorous musical vernaculars. The band is currently in the studio recording their next album which will be released in 2018.
