Arbel Bedak is Sync Director at Decca Publishing and currently runs the US office for the London-based division of Decca Music Group under Universal Music Group UK.
He pitches music for placement in film, TV, advertising, and trailers in North America and procures scoring opportunities for the growing roster of Decca Publishing composer/artists, including Max Richter, Clark, and Tom Hodge. In addition, he works creatively with the roster to create new, sync-friendly works, and serves as the eyes and ears of Decca Publishing in North America when it comes to seeking new potential signings.
Arbel previously served as an agent at Evolution Music Partners, representing composers like Abel Korzeniowski, Fil Eisler, Lesley Barber, and Charlie Clouser. Simultaneously, he ran the daily operations of sister company Score Revolution, a start-up film music licensing company that he joined in the early stages as an intern and helped build. He went on to manage the catalog and served as the main contact for creative licensing and acquisition for three years.
Before that, Arbel received his Bachelor’s in Music Composition from UC Davis, where he directed the university’s marching band and worked for the Department of Music. Following graduation he moved to Los Angeles with aspirations of a career in film scoring, which dissipated as he fell in love with the music business and realized his passion for working with and supporting composers.
