PETER RUNDQUIST

composer / sound designer / guitarist / engineer / producer

Peter Rundquist left a stint on Wall Street many years ago to pursue a career in music. He has lent his originality and vision to a number of film and television projects including CLIO award-winning advertising and original music for the Disney Channel, ESPN and Nickelodeon. Most recently he has composed scores for 1964, which premiered on the PBS series American Experience, and the award-winning documentary Buck, about the true Horse Whisperer. His score for The Constitution premiered on PBS to coincide with the 225th anniversary of the ratification of the Constitution.

As co-founder of the instrumental group Zoar, he co-wrote and produced several albums for the Philip Glass label Point Records.

While engineering and producing Straight From The Delta, a CD of delta blues field recordings performed by legendary Mississippi artists, he became enamored with the exploration and performance of folk and roots music. Past projects have included sessions with notable blues artists ranging from Corey Harris to Taj Mahal and B.B. King.

As an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, he is constantly seeking new and unique stringed instruments for use in his compositions. In his spare time he hones his banjo frailing.

He was recently awarded an artist's residency at the Ucross Foundation in Wyoming.
