Salem's David Metzger: Shaping The Sound Of Frozen


Salem composer David Metzger has been involved in crafting the sound of some of the biggest animated films of recent years. His talent is fleshing out orchestral melodies into full-blown scores.

Metzger spent several years in the L.A. area, but his reputation now allows him to work on projects from his home in Oregon. Right now, he's working on the score for Planes 2.
