Asaf Sagiv is a Los Angeles based composer, best known for his work for the Netflix Original 'Who Shot The Sheriff?' (2018) directed by Academy Award nominated director Kief Davidson, and for Foxhound's feature film 'Drugs' (2018) directed by Jonathan Marshall Thompson.
He spent his early life growing up in Israel, playing guitar and studying composition, and later relocated to the USA. He is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston (‘07), and a recipient of the Film Scoring department Doug Timm Award for Outstanding Musicianship. He was selected to attend the Society of Composers & Lyricists (SCL) Mentor Program in Los Angeles Fall 2007. His work for the short film Dreamwisher (2019) won the Southern Shorts Award Of Excellence for Individual Achievement In Music.
After spending a couple of years living and working in Hollywood making music for film, TV and commercials, he moved back to Israel to form his band Water Knot. He led their EP tour of Europe and the US, culminating at Bonnaroo Festival, before settling in London for a couple of years. Living in London saw Asaf return to scoring, with the feature 'Last Summer', directed by Leonardo Guerra Seragnoli and starring Rinko Kikuchi (Babel). The film premiered at Rome International Film Festival, was nominated for Best Feature Film Award and received AITS Best Sound Award.
His music has been since featured in two major blockbusters; Gary Felder's 'Homefront' produced by Nu Image / Millennium Films, and 'Misconduct' released by Lionsgate starring Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino - the latter of which selected his work for the official soundtrack. His music has recently appeared on a soundtrack alongside Beck for the feature drama 'Like Me Back'(2018).
