César Dávila-Irizarry

César Dávila-Irizarry is an award-winning composer from Puerto Rico who is currently based in Los Angeles, California. He is known for creating powerful sonic experiences that blur the line between music and sound design. César uses electronic and acoustic sounds to enhance storytelling for film, TV, art, and dance. The Huffington Post says his music style “speaks to us on an unconscious level.” César is known best as the main composer of the theme song of Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story” and the sole composer of the theme song of the Ron Howard and Brian Grazer production “Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel.” He has also written music for the award-winning director Joel Benjamin, the award-winning Butoh dancer Yokko, and the worldwide architecture firm ARUP. César is also the proud recipient of 9 BMI music awards.
