Will Van De Crommert is a multi-instrumentalist and composer for film and television. 

WILL VAN DE CROMMERT

Media Composer

From Saturday Night Live to the Soho and Sedona International Film Festivals, Will’s music has accompanied hundreds of film, television, and commercial productions throughout the world. His compositions have appeared alongside programming and media for NBC's Peacock, CBS, BET, The Today Show, and the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Embracing both his classical and popular roots, Will has become a go-to composer for directors, producers, and creative agencies seeking his bombastic orchestral, experimental, and rock-infused approach to underscore.

Will grew up in Minneapolis and began producing music at the age of 14. Studying classical piano and head banging on stage with indie punk acts, his musical influences ran the gamut of jazz and rock to big band and orchestral music.  Following a music composition degree from St. John’s University, he moved to Los Angeles and spent several months working under composing veteran Jeff Rona, whose work appears on blockbusters such as Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, and The Prince of Egypt.  Will later moved back to his native Minnesota home where he met his wife and planted roots. 

He has spoken on film music at the Institute of Production and Recording, Bethel University, McNally Smith School of Music, and the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival. He lives and writes in Minneapolis.
