Myles Boisen is a recording and mastering engineer, album producer, film and television composer, journalist, and guitarist/bassist. His resume includes hundreds of studio and live recordings for independant groups and labels, as well as for MTV/Comedy Central, CBS, Warner Bros., Polydor, PBS, et. al. Myles was the engineer on "The Gorey End" CD by The Tigerlillies and Kronos Quartet (EMI Classics), nominated for a Grammy award in 2004. His production and restoration work on Clarence Sims' "Born To Sing The Blues" CD (Mt. Top Records) garnered two awards from Real Blues Magazine in 1999: "Best West Coast blues reissue" and "Best studio sound technique".
In addition to musical performances with Tom Waits, John Zorn, the Rova Saxophone Quartet, Fred Frith, Eugene Chadbourne, Splatter Trio, and The Club Foot Orchestra, Myles has contributed to a number of independant film soundtracks, plus director David Lynch's films "Twin Peaks" and "Wild At Heart".
Throughout the 1990s Myles was a composer and bassist in The Club Foot Orchestra, which is generally acknowledged as the first national touring ensemble to revive the art of original music performance with classic silent films and cartoons. During this period the CFO collective appeared at Lincoln Center (New York City) and Disney World (Orlando, Fl.) performing their scores for such vintage classics as Fritz Lang's Metropolis, Pandora's Box, and Buster Keaton's Sherlock Jr.
The original CFO soundtrack recording for Sherlock Jr., produced by Boisen, was selected by Kino Video to accompany their commercial video re-release of this silent comedy gem. Myles was also a key member of the CFO team hired by the Film Roman studio (The Simpsons, Garfield, et. al.) to score and record a season's worth of music for their Saturday morning cartoon revival of Felix The Cat.
As a composer Myles has scored original work for the award-winning Onsite Dance Co. (San Francisco/ New York,) Rova Saxophone Quartet, and numerous Bay Area new music ensembles. He is currently the musical director of Orchestra Nostalgico, a CFO spinoff dedicated to the live performance of film music (Nino Rota, Ennio Morricone, John Barry.) Boisen pursues his musical interests in Oakland, Ca., where he is chief engineer at Guerrilla Recording, a full-service recording studio.
