Although Serj Tankian’s professional career blossomed in the world of hard rock, the Grammy-Award winning artist best known for being the frontman of System Of A Down has ventured down many other musical paths with both critical and commercial success.
Throughout the years, Tankian's compositions have found themselves on screen for over a dozen film and TV productions. Some highlights include the Ridley Scott film Body of Lies starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Russell Crowe, William Friedkin's acclaimed film Bug starring Ashley Judd and Michael Shannon, and the upcoming Terry George film that stars Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac.
As a composer of film and video game score, Serj has two recent significant credits, with both productions being released in 2015. Serj composed all the music for the film 1915 which stars Simon Abkarian and Angela Sarafyan. Another recent project that Serj composed all the music for is the video game Midnight Star, which was produced by the creators of the seminal Halo video game series.
Serj is currently working on the musical score for the independent film, The Last Inhabitant, which is slated for a 2016 release.
