When Joseph first became aware of the impact of music against images, he was inspired to create. But growing up in a place without a film program, he turned to the stage, composing incidental music for plays throughout high school and college. He began his musical study on piano and later to playing trumpet and French horn in the school band, and singing in the choir. He discovered a passion for oboe and earned a degree in oboe performance from Boise State University.
Joseph now focuses his talents in the film music industry in Los Angeles. His work can be heard in numerous features, commercials, web series, and short films.
Joseph has also prepared scores and parts, served as orchestrator and arranger for other industry colleagues, including Emile Mosseri (Last Black Man in San Francisco), Miriam Cutler (Dark Money, RBG, Love, Gilda), and Penka Kouneva (Life Link, Blue). Additionally, he has performed oboe parts, whistling, vocals, voice-over and narration.
