Biography

Michael A. Levine is a Governor of the Television Academy (Emmys) Music peer group. He has eight ASCAP awards for his work on the Jerry Bruckheimer/CBS dramas 'Cold Case' and 'Close to Home'. Levin scored the 'Lego DC Supergirls' film, 'Brain Drain', the not-yet-released George Lucas-produced Star Wars Detours animated Star Wars parody, and the award-winning documentary, 'Landfill Harmonic', for which he wrote its Oscar-shortlisted song, 'Cateura - Vamos a Soñar'. His theme song (Go Tell Aunt Rhody/Everybody’s Dead) for Resident Evil VII Biohazard VR - the first VR game in the RE series – has become a viral hit as was Lorde's version of Everybody Wants to Rule the World which he produced along with chart-topping records for Nat and Alex Wolff. Michael also composed the theme for 'Scrat', the sabertooth squirrel featured in the 'Ice Age' shorts. He provided additional music and violin on a number of Hans Zimmer scores, including 'Dunkirk', 'The Simpsons Movie', 'Batman: The Dark Knight', 'Megamind', and 'Rango'. Michael's choir arrangement of 'Spider Pig' was conducted by Hans at the Hollywood Bowl in 2015. Levine’s concert music includes Anthem, performed by piano virtuoso Lang Lang in 2014 in Beijing. An upcoming album features duets with percussionist great Evelyn Glennie on mallets and Michael on electric violin. March 2018, he just finished recording his song 'Running' with legendary vocalist Roberta Flack for the feature film '3100'.
