ABOUT Adam Lastiwka
Adam Lastiwka is a prolific composer for film and television based in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. He is best known for his work on the globally renowned Netflix series Travelers from Stargate Creator and Writer Brad Wright, as well as the Emmy Nominated series Interrupt this Program.
Starting at the age of seventeen with a three-album record contract, Adam seated himself as a pioneer of the home-studio based recording movement, thriving within a complex and challenging industry. The raw, powerful, organic and unique arrangements he creates with his distinct musical palette garnered attention, at a very young age, from Producers and Directors worldwide, earning him a diverse range of internationally broadcasted series, and to this day has contributed music to more than five hundred (and counting) episodes of television, documentaries, feature films and advertisements.
His fresh, unique and collaborative approach to scoring and composition always lends itself to a heightened final product in whatever context he’s working. Adam believes in delivering the most custom tailored scores to all of his clients, and in keeping with that goal, he has dedicated himself to learning the widest variety of musical instruments from all corners of the globe. While he is definitely an advocate of technology and is happy to utilize it in his productions, the artificiality and staleness it can yields, as well as the lack of personalization to the client has made him utilize it only the most transparent capacity that is necessary.
