Frederik has written music for a wide variety of feature films including Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox (Warner Bros. Animation), Hostel: Part III (Sony Pictures), Mirrors II (20th Century Fox), Hellraiser: Revelations (Weinstein Company, Dimension Films), and The Hills Run Red (Dark Castle Entertainment, Warner Brothers). You can also hear Frederik’s music in several TV productions including Moonlight (CBS), Reunion (Fox), Frost Giant (Syfy) and Triassic Attack (Syfy), just to name a few.

A strong foundation in digital music production combined with well-developed dramatic sensibility makes Frederik a highly desirable and in-demand Hollywood composer for film and TV. After receiving 2 Annie Award nominations for his scores to the critically acclaimed TV series Green Lantern: The Animated Series (Created by Bruce Timm at Warner Brothers), he then moved onto scoring the brand new DC Comics show Beware the Batman, debuting in 2013 on Cartoon Network.


As an Emmy award-winning composer for motion picture, Joel’s signature style thrives in musical settings that require both quiet undercurrents and intense human emotion. Joel has scored 4 Oscar-nominated films and over 25 Emmy-nominated television programs and documentaries. He composed the Main Theme for the long-running and critically acclaimed PBS series American Experience, of which he also scored more than a dozen episodes including Seabiscuit, Wyatt Earp, Walt Whitman, and JFK, a four hour documentary about the 35th president. He has scored over 30 films for HBO, most notably Born Rich, Wartorn, Hear & Now, A Small Act and Saving Pelican #895, for which he received an Emmy award. Being Elmo, the heartfelt and crowd-pleasing documentary about the man behind the Muppet, is just one of several films featuring Joel’s music to see a theatrical release.

His expertise as a composer is aided by his comfort in collaborating with directors and producers. Having scored more than 100 films in total, he has a refined ability to turn the emotions we see into those we hear and feel. Because of this, Joel has been fortunate to work with such award winning and legendary filmmakers as Wong Kar-wai, Barbara Kopple, Albert Maysles, Barak Goodman, Sebastian Junger, Fisher Stevens, Kevin Spacey, Irene Taylor Brodsky, Andrew Jarecki, Mark Zwonitzer, Marshall Curry, Oren Jacoby and Michael Epstein.
