Meet Moses Truzman

Today we’d like to introduce you to Moses Truzman.

Hi Moses, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I was born in New York & then moved to Miami. I’ve always been artistically inclined and spent high school in bands but also deep in visual arts. And then studied art direction at the Miami Ad School and after graduating worked for Deutsch New York. While I was there, I started writing music for plays in New York on the side while also DJing and then decided to pack up and head west to Los Angeles. Then with a good friend, I got a studio in Downtown LA and started producing music. Shortly after, I was contacted by Music supervisor who had heard some of my music online and asked me to write music for a television commercial. I had never done anything like that and I was so excited and the next thing I know I booked the spot! That started my career in writing music for TV and film. Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to work on so many amazing projects. Everything from a basketball documentary “Killer Bees” with Shaquille O’Neal to a nature VR documentary series for Google & Facebook called “Ecosphere” to high campaigns for Neutrogena, Target and so many others. All the while, I’ve also dj’ed all over the world and when I was on tour in Asia gave a Ted X talk in India. In the last few years, photo & videography have become a real passion of mine and I’ve gotten to work on some incredible projects. I’ve truly been so lucky to be able to weave between art & music in so many different ways.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s been a road of highs and lows. I didn’t have much money growing up but I love working and always food a way. Luckily there’s been so many amazing people who believed in me and took a chance on me for their projects and for that, I’m forever grateful.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
It’s funny because depending who you ask, I’m known for different things. When it comes to music, I feel I bring a certain vibrancy and life to projects. I always want the music to really make you feel something and move you. I play a few instruments but also love the technological side of producing so theirs always a mix of organics elements but it still has that beat and bounces to it. Same for my DJ sets…I love world rhythms and I always get told there’s just a certain bounce feel to when I play. I feel it’s the same for my visual art projects. I just want things to always pop and make the viewer connect and feel with the work. As far as what I’m most proud of that’s tough b/c I’ve been lucky to work on so many incredible projects but the documentary “Killer Bees” that I scored for Shaquille Oneil comes to mind. It was an amazing story about how a high school basketball team in the Hamptons helped save a community that was being gentrified. They really let me be as creative as I wanted to be and it was the first full-length movie I scored. It will always have a special place in my heart.

We all have a different way of looking at and defining success. How do you define success?
Success to me would be working on projects that I am proud of and knowing I did my absolute best and then using that experience to help bring others up as well.
