Jeff Rona

Jeff Rona is one of the unique, contemporary musical voices in today's film world. A student of photography, arts and music in college, he left to pursue music as his life's work. He recorded and performed as a member of Jon Hassell's highly regarded group, during which he co-composed and produced the acclaimed CITY-WORKS OF FICTION records.

A highly in-demand musician for numerous films and records, he landed his first solo composing project, scoring the acclaimed television series HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET with director Barry Levinson. This was followed by other TV projects including Steven Spielberg's first TV series HIGH INCIDENT, Robert Altman's award winning GUN anthology, Frank Darabont on his BLACK CAT RUN film for HBO, Traffic (miniseries), and international auteur Wong Kar Wai's film, THE FOLLOWING for BMW Films.

His feature film work includes Ridley Scott's WHITE SQUALL, THE MOTHMAN PROPHESIES, EXIT WOUNDS, Mary Lambert's THE IN CROWD, contributions to Steven Soderbergh's TRAFFIC, SCHIZOPOLIS and KAFKA, Ridley Scott's BLACK HAWK DOWN, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2, ASSASINS, GLADIATOR, THE NET, THIN RED LINE, THE FAN, CHILL FACTOR and many others.

In addition to his album work with Hassell, his music is also on the critically praised world-beat Transplanet series on Triloka Records, and the electronica compilation LEAVES FROM THE TREE on Vitamin Records. His collaboration with Dead Can Dance's Lisa Gerrard, A THOUSAND ROADS, is on Reincarnate Records.
