Siddhartha Khosla is making magic on TV, combining acoustic instruments with rapid inspiration and all the benefits of remote teams and production.  He is at the heart of music creation in this abundant world of peak TV, working across shows at his home studio with a remote team, while recording on acoustic instruments from the US and abroad.  Siddhartha creates a wide range of environments, from the acoustic, Indian-inspired music he creates for "This Is Us" to his electronic score for Marvel's "Runaways." Siddhartha shares his approach to TV and film scoring, where instead of synthesized sounds he and other artists record it live.
