A versatile composer in his own right, he has lent his unique sound to productions such as "Tron: Uprising," "The Raid 2," "Earth To Echo," and "The Bannen Way" as well as numerous independent films and theatrical productions. Joseph has also contributed as an arranger to albums from Kelly Clarkson ("Wrapped in Red"), Active Child ("Rapor EP"), White Sea (forthcoming album), and 3Oh!3 (co-writer and co-producer of "Do Or Die"). He has conducted live performances with M83 (2013 at The Hollywood Bowl with The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra; and 2012 Summerstage at New York City's Central Park), Kelly Clarkson ("Kelly Clarkson's A Cautionary Christmas Tale"), and with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, when in February 2014 he was invited by composer Steven Price to conduct portions of his Oscar-winning score from the film "Gravity" at Royce Hall for the first ever Oscar Concert.
