BMG Production Music teams up with composer Alan Lazar for ‘Luminary Scores’ collection

BMG Production Music (BMGPM) has joined forces with renowned TV and Film composer Alan Lazar to produce the ‘Luminary Scores’ label.

The collection will comprise a premium selection of production music from a roster of A-list composers. 

Curated by Lazar, sixty albums are planned for release under the Luminary Scores label over the coming year, 15 of which are available now.

Veteran composer Lazar’s credits including everything from Emmy-nominated ‘An American Crime’ and ‘Sex and the City’, to National Geographic’s ‘Natural World’ and ‘Swamp of the Baboons’.


“When I watch films and TV shows, the score is what animates me the most,” said Lazar. “So much of the emotional impact of stories come from the scores communicating as the language of emotion, tapping into the deep-felt parts of the human vision. A fantastic score can elevate any story, so with Luminary Scores I’m proud to present a best-in-class open treasure chest to be utilised and enjoyed.

“I’ve admired what BMG has achieved over the last five years, creating an impressive presence in production music. Having a home here for Luminary Scores feels like the perfect fit and our featured composers are confident that their works are well-represented with BMGPM’s global reach. We’re going to tell a lot of wonderful visual stories.”

The first 15 titles now live on the BMGPM site include Spy DramedyHi Jinks and HeistsShowdown Swagger and Wonderful World.

Along with Lazar, the label currently includes the work of composers Nathan Barr, Jeff Cardoni, Sherri Chung, Ben Decter, Matt Koskenmaki, Richard Marvin, Tony Morales, Blake Neely, Nicholas Pike and Edward Rogers.
