Picture of Alex Wakim Film Composer

With his music scoring Julianne Moore, being featured in the National Portrait Gallery (thru 2023), DOC NYC, New Orleans Film Festival (Glen Eden, dir. Rebecca Blandón), RAINDANCE Film Festival, (Frayed Roots, dir. Nay Tabbara), and more, Wakim’s unique musical tastes have led him to explore fresh avenues in writing for the screen. His cinematic Middle-Eastern music has been published with APM, and he is the co-founder of Dekatu Scoring, a boutique advertising music company, working with brands like ILIA and Hourglass Cosmetics. 

In addition to his scoring work, Wakim has developed two successful shows that continue to grow: Dust and Ions, a concert experience based on his album, as well as An American in Beirut, a musical in development with the Musical Theatre Factory in NYC. Both have received sold out shows across the country. Based in NYC, collaboration is key to Wakim’s approach to creating. He also loves stargazing, history, and exceptional stories.
