Steffen Schmidt is an American film, TV, and videogame score composer and conductor best known for his scores for "Passage to Mars" and "Assassinating The Tiger."
Beginning his musical journey at a young age, Steffen studied violin at the age of 4 and grew up immersed in a classical household in Portland, Oregon. By the time he turned 8, Steffen was already performing in local symphony orchestras which would later include tours to Europe and China. In addition to violin, Steffen developed his craft performing the viola and conducting various concerts in the Portland area.
It was the discovery of Jerry Goldsmith's music for film and television that truly inspired Steffen to pursue his primary passion - film scoring. Steffen's career path lead him to Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where he received a North American Tour Scholarship.
