Joshua Spacht is a composer and orchestrator of multi-media and concert music. His eclectic style is characterized by synth programming and other modern elements against a neo-classical backdrop to create a sonic palette that's both fresh and timeless. Trained as a classical pianist, born a drummer - Joshua uses traditional composition techniques and idioms and marries them with epic percussion and pulsating orchestration.
Born and raised in Erie County Pennsylvania, Joshua moved to Los Angeles after high school where he began his musical studies at The Master's College before receiving additional training under Craig Sheppard at The University of Washington. He went on to earn a Master Certificate in Arranging & Orchestration from Berklee College of Music.
Joshua has a particular love for choral music and his pieces and arrangements have been published by Word Music, LifeWay Publishing and Santa Barbara Music Publishing. As a songwriter and soundtrack composer, Joshua has partnered with many nationally recognized software developers, filmmakers, advertising agencies and recording artists.

Joshua's philosophy of composition can be summed up in this quote by Johann Philipp Kirnberger, "The true goal of music - its proper enterprise - is melody. All the parts of harmony have as their ultimate purpose only beautiful melody. Therefore the question of which is the more significant, melody or harmony, is futile. Beyond doubt, the means is subordinate to the end."
