Dan Marocco is a Los Angeles-based composer for film and television. Born in Texas, and raised in Osaka, Japan; Dan's music builds from an eclectic range of influences. As the son of a music teacher, he got an early start playing the piano, trumpet and guitar. While studying at NYU, he began scoring music to picture.

From his comedic-action score for the Golden Globe winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine, to his foreboding orchestral score for the Dimension thriller Demonic, Dan thrives on creating a unique sound for each project.

Some of Dan’s other recent work includes feature films Boys of Abu Ghraib and Brotherhood, the adult|swim TV show NTSF:SD:SUV::, and the VICE digital series Pillowtalk.

Dan has also had the pleasure of assisting several notable composers including Alexandre Desplat (Argo, The King's Speech, Zero Dark Thirty) and Javier Navarrete (Pan's Labyrinth, Wrath of the Titans, Hemingway and Gellhorn).

Dan's music has also been featured on Modern Family, Say Yes to the Dress and many advertisements including commercials for AT&T, Budweiser, BMW, McDonald's among others.

Dan enjoys writing from his studio in Los Angeles, with frequent visits from his wife, two young sons and studio-dog, Diego.
