Emmy nominated composer Amin Bhatia's fascination with orchestral music and electronics won him international fame in his youth which led to projects with David Foster, Steve Porcaro; a solo album on Capitol Records Cinema label titled The Interstellar Suite and an award-winning career in music composition for film and television. Amin is currently working on "Flashpoint" (with co-writer Ari Posner) which airs on CBS and CTV. In between film and TV music assignments his long-awaited sequel to "The Interstellar Suite" entitled "Virtuality" was released on the anniversary of Bob Moog's birthday.
Resume and Credits The realism and expression of Amin's sound consistently wins critical acclaim among those in both the electronic and classical music genres. Amin's approach has been likened to the harmonic inventiveness of Jerry Goldsmith and the technical prowess of Hans Zimmer.
