Los Angeles, California, USA
Born in Los Angeles in 1958, composer and pianist Kendall Schmidt was brought up in Beverly Hills and became a professional film composer in 1985. Sometimes using only a synthesizer, he quickly gained a reputation for writing low budget scores of quality, most memorably the haunting score for Neon Maniacs (1986). He was then brought in to re-score for video release Witchfinder General (1968) and Scream and Scream Again (1969) when MGM/UA decided not to pay royalties to the original English composers. For similar reasons Schmidt also re-scored the Italian sci-fi Terrore nello spazio (1965). Read more...
