Silas Hite is an Emmy award winning artist and composer currently living and working in Los Angeles. His scores have garnered an Emmy, a Grand Clio, a Cannes Titanium Grand Prix, a Grand Effie and Adweek's Campaign of The Decade.
He has written memorable music for some of the biggest video games and television shows of the past ten years and contributed music to both blockbuster and independent films. He has a large collection of unique instruments and plays many of them on his projects. He loves to play drums, guitar, bass, synths, keys, accordion, mandolin, organ and percussion instruments from around the world.
He began his career working with his uncles, Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh (Devo), at Mark's music studio, quickly earning a position as a full-time, in-house composer. Over the span of seven very productive years, he honed the craft of creating both mainstream and mutated music. Striking out on his own in 2009, Silas has since become an in-demand freelance composer. In addition to scoring commercials, films, games and TV shows, he writes songs and creates art. Recently his drawings were aquired by The Getty Permanent Collection.
His music has played in such venerable institutions as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the New York Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, and The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
