Jake Hull (based in Portland, OR) is an ASCAP composer for film, TV, theater, and chamber works. He received his degree in Music History & Literature from Christopher Newport University. There he studied piano with Dr. Jeffrey Brown as well as composition with Dr. Brian Hulse. It was there at university that Hull, already an obsessive fan of film, took a class on music in Alfred Hitchcock's films. Hull cites the endless hours studying Bernard Herrmann's scores that ignited his passion for the craft of film music.
