Aaron Harris is a composer for Methodic Doubt Music, where he writes for film, television and video games. He’s also the drummer of the bands Isis (1997-2010) and Palms.
Aaron’s background in emotionally tense and dynamic music translates to his composing work. His music is often dark and moody, combining gritty synths, powerful rhythms, pulsing electronics and orchestration to produce a musical experience that is original and provocative.
Prior to composing, Aaron made his mark in the award-winning band Isis, whose heavy, experimental sound ushered in a new subgenre dubbed by the New York Times as “art metal.” Isis’ albums — a unique combination of metal, hardcore and progressive rock — were consistently lauded by critics across the globe during the band’s 13-year run.
After Isis disbanded, he formed Palms with Deftones’ Chino Moreno and previous band members Clifford Meyer and Jeff Caxide. Their self-titled debut, which Aaron recorded and mixed, was praised by critics at Pitchfork, Alternative Press and Spin, which described its “gushing, soaring melodies” as “breathtaking.”
As a producer, Aaron has worked with artists such as Puscifer, Spotlights, Deftones, Team Sleep, Pelican, The Jezabels and Jakob, as well as his own bands.
