Jared DePasquale (B.M. Guitar Performance with an emphasis in Music Technology, 1993) recently won a Seneca Award presented by Audio Theatre Central in the Best Score for an Audio Drama category for his orchestral score to The Adventum, Volume I, produced by Wise King Media in San Diego, California.
This is DePasquale's second Seneca Award, as he also won last year for his powerful Celtic infused orchestral score to The Trials of Saint Patrick (starring John Rhys Davies of Lord of the Rings), which was produced by The Augustine Institute and directed by Peabody and Audie award winning director, Paul McCusker.
Upon graduating from Duquesne University, Jared apprenticed under Emmy and ASCAP Award winning composer Joseph LoDuca. With LoDuca, Jared learned the business of composing for A-list projects including the globally syndicated television shows Xena: The Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Immediately following his apprenticeship, Jared was recognized by Music from the Movies as one of the three most promising and interesting talents among film composers today.
In recent years, Jared has become a highly sought after composer in the world of Audio Drama as his stirring and diverse orchestral scores connect with many producers, directors, and audience members alike. His most recent project was Paul McCusker's adaptation of The Legends of Robin Hood (starring Gwilym Lee of Bohemian Rhapsody) where DePasquale composed more than three hours of orchestral score for this epic saga.
