LOS ANGELES, CA — Award-winning film composer Ron Grant has been a valued West L.A. Music customer for over 20 years. "West L.A. Music has been a great help in keeping me up to date with the ever-pressing advances in technology that are indispensable in film scoring," says Ron, who has won Academy and Emmy awards for the development of a film music software system called "Auricle: The Film Composer's Time Processor". Auricle revolutionized the industry with the first computerized film timing and click track system ever used on a Hollywood scoring stage. Working together with his brother and computer systems designer, Richard Grant, this software is responsible for timing and controlling the score of nearly every major motion picture today.

Ron also has several Emmy nominations, including two for Outstanding Music for Universal/Harvey's "Casper," Best Song for the "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" cartoon series and "Outstanding Achievement for Music In Television" from The International Animated Film Society (ASIFA).

He has written for hundreds of film and TV projects and numerous commercials and has been at the podium conducting over 80 of his orchestral scores with some of the finest studio musicians and recording facilities in Los Angeles. Still, he recognizes the importance of being able to do projects from start to finish in his home studio. "The ability to score a film electronically has become a vital part of the skills necessary for today's film music artists. And West L.A. Music has all the right tools."

Ron's awards will be showcased at West L.A. Music through the month of December. For more information about Ron Grant and Auricle, visit www.filmmusicarts.com and www.auricle.com.
