Dave Porter

 Dave Porter began his musical training on the piano at age five, and began composing as a teen. He studied classical and electronic music composition at Sarah Lawrence College, and started his professional career at Philip Glass’ studio in New York City. Dave is the series composer for the Emmy-acclaimed drama Breaking Bad on AMC, and was awarded an ASCAP Film and TV award for Breaking Bad and the FOX Studios paramedic drama Saved, which aired on TNT. He also served as music editor on the final season of the HBO drama Six Feet Under. Porter was the composer for the documentary Bigger, Stronger, Faster*, which premiered at Sundance and is currently airing on Showtime. He is currently at work on Smiley, a feature horror film from director Michael Gallagher of YouTube’s Totally Sketch.  His scores also appear in the dramatic films The Oh in Ohio (Parker Posey, Danny DeVito), Ultraviolet (Milla Jovovich), and Vacancy (Kate Beckinsale).  Dave is set to begin work this June on the 5th season of Breaking Bad, further expanding the unique blend of ethnic and electronic instruments that have become a signature of the show.
