Growing up in the UK, Kaveh found his love for composing and film music at a very early age after hearing John Williams’ legendary score for E.T. He soon also discovered a passion for synthesizers and electronic music. Leaning into his sensibilities, Kaveh has developed a unique musical voice that has allowed him to contribute his innovative and constantly evolving sound to film, television, video games, trailers and commercials.

In video games, Kaveh very recently completed the score for Forza Motorsport (2023), the latest entry in Microsoft’s billion dollar franchise. Written over the course of three years, his modern hybrid score encompasses live orchestra and bespoke programmed modular and synth elements to create a sonic landscape both elegant and intense. Forza Motorsport marks almost a decade for Kaveh helming the musical footprint of the iconic franchise. His one of a kind rock score for Forza Motorsport 7 features a star-studded cast of legendary musicians such as Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction, Alanis Morissette), Victor Indrizzo (Queens of the Stone Age, Chris Cornell), Aaron Sterling (John Mayer, Lana Del Rey) and Gene Troutmann (Eagles of Death Metal, Queens of the Stone Age) among many others. His rousing hybrid orchestral score for Forza Motorsport 6, recorded with a 90 piece orchestra, garnered international praise and several award nominations for best video game score. Kaveh provided scores for the last two installments of Ubisoft’s iconic Tom Clancy games, Splinter Cell Blacklist and Splinter Cell Conviction recorded with the Hollywood Studio Symphony on the legendary Warner Bros. Eastwood Scoring Stage in Los Angeles. He has also provided scores for blockbuster movie tie-ins Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters for Warner Bros. Interactive and Battleship for Activision. He collaborated with Riot Games to provide scores for Riot’s wildly popular League of Legends and to compose Road to the Cup, a custom piece written for the League of Legends World Championships - a sold out event held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, streamed to over 32 million people and with over 7.5 million views to date on YouTube.

Kaveh’s theme for Splinter Cell Conviction was recorded by The London Philharmonic Orchestra for their best selling album The Greatest Video Game Music which reached #23 on the Billboard charts. Famed violinist Angèle Dubeau recorded a new arrangement of the theme with her string ensemble La Pietà for her album Game Music and music publisher Hal Leonard included the theme in their piano solo songbook, The Greatest Video Game Music. His theme for Forza Motorsport 6 received its world premiere on the concert stage by the Hradec Kralové Philharmonic.

In television, Kaveh provided the theme for one of the History Channel’s highest rated specials aired to date, the epic 12 part series America: The Story of Us narrated by Liev Schreiber. He also provided the theme for The Last Huntsman for the Discovery Channel, produced by Skip Films. He co-scored Marvel’s hit animated series Wolverine and the X-Men and has contributed scores to Emmy nominated and award winning shows and mini series such as The Jonas Brothers’ Chasing Happiness, Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Adventures, The Crash of Flight 191, Biography: John Travolta, Red Flag, Above and Beyond, Probable Cause, The Chronicle and many others. Kaveh has also scored numerous commercials for clients including Sony, SEGA, NBC, AT&T, Mattel and Six Flags.

In film, Kaveh’s scores include Crawlspace for writer/director Josh Stolberg (Saw X, Jigsaw, Sorority Row, The Last Airbender) and the award winning foreign film Generation P, a critically acclaimed feature adaptation of Viktor Pelevin’s iconic book, directed by celebrated director Victor Ginsburg. His haunting score for Lionsgate’s cult classic, H.P. Lovecraft’s Beyond The Wall of Sleep was met with critical acclaim.

In trailers, being top call composers for their clients for over 20 years now, Kaveh and writing partner Michael Nielsen with their company Ninja Tracks, have racked up literally thousands of motion picture, television and video game campaign credits. Very recent credits include Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Avatar The Way of Water, Barbie, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, Gran Turismo, A Haunting in Venice, John Wick 4, The Creator, Blue Beetle, Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Fast X. Kaveh and Michael have also remixed and covered iconic songs such as The Beatles’ Come Together for Justice League, Cream’s Sunshine of Your Love for The Gentlemen, Greta Van Fleet’s Highway Song for Ford v Ferrari, Van Halen’s Jump for Ready Player One, Alanis Morissette’s You Oughta Know for Little Fires Everywhere and ZZ Top’s Sharp Dressed Man for The Kingsman 2.

Passionate about all avenues of music, Kaveh also composed the score for an Audie Audiobook of the Year winner, The Bible Experience. A complete and fully dramatized recording featuring an all star cast of almost 400 performers including 3 Academy Award winners, 5 Golden Globe winners, 8 Emmy winners and 23 Grammy winners. Highlights include Denzel Washington, Forest Whitaker, Samuel Jackson, Angela Bassett, Blair Underwood, Cuba Gooding Jr., Robert Guillaume, Eartha Kitt and LL Cool J. His beautiful and dramatic orchestral score was recorded live in Prague. Kaveh’s music has also been used by one of England’s most successful Premiere League soccer teams, Arsenal FC as their stadium entry music.
