Arbel Bedak (he/him) is the owner and creative agent at Spectra Creative Agency, representing a diverse roster of media composers and music supervisors and a catalog of music for licensing. He is a multi-faceted music creative who has worked across many aspects of music in media over the past decade, from creative sync to publishing to composer representation.

A creative at heart, Arbel holds a Bachelor’s degree in composition from UC Davis and is passionate about helping composers at all stages develop their careers, taking a hands-on, collaborative approach to working with artists. He firmly believes in giving more opportunities to a more diverse pool of composers and music supervisors and is committed to raising up marginalized voices and promoting inclusion and diversity in the sync and scoring spaces. Arbel’s previous experience includes working as an agent at Evolution Music Partners and serving as Vice President of Sync A&R/Creative at Decca Publishing (Universal Music Group).

Through the course of his career, he’s had the opportunity to represent and collaborate with composers of diverse musical backgrounds who make music for various creative disciplines within and outside of media scoring. His appreciation for and experience with this wide array of composer/artists, matched with his passion for developing talent and diversifying the landscape, laid the groundwork for curating his own roster and creating a space to develop emerging talent in the scoring and sync spaces.

Spectra Creative Agency represents composers and artists like Tangelene Bolton, Rebekka Karijord, Cindy O’Connor, Julianna Barwick, Mary Lattimore, Brad Oberhofer, and EmmoLei Sankofa, as well as music supervisors like Taylor Rowley and Jackie Westfall.
