Aaron Harris is an award-winning musician and composer. His critically-acclaimed releases have topped the Billboard Charts and appeared in television series, film trailers, documentaries, video games and more.

Described as “downright breathtaking” by Spin, Aaron specializes in composing emotionally tense music. His sound is often dark and moody, combining gritty synths, powerful rhythms, pulsing electronics, organic strings and orchestration. Pitchfork describes his style as “drawing menace and beauty in equal parts.”

As a composer at Methodic Doubt Music, Aaron writes custom scores, sound design and overlays as well original albums for use in film, television, video games, commercials and branded content. His work has appeared in projects for A24, Warner Bros., Universal, Disney, Lionsgate, Netflix, NBC, Red Bull and Samsung, among others.

Prior to his composing career, Aaron made his mark in the band ISIS (1997-2010), whose heavy, yet ethereal and atmospheric sound ushered in a new subgenre dubbed by the New York Times as “art metal.” ISIS’ albums were consistently lauded by critics across the globe during the band’s 13-year run and in 2017 Rolling Stone named ISIS’ album Oceanic one of The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.

After ISIS disbanded, he formed Palms with previous band members Clifford Meyer and Jeff Caxide and Deftones’ Chino Moreno. Their self-titled debut, which Aaron recorded and mixed, was praised by critics as “thrilling” and “just perfect.”

As a producer, Aaron has worked with Puscifer, Spotlights, Deftones, Team Sleep, Pelican, The Jezabels and Jakob, as well as his own bands.

He lives in Los Angeles.
