Ronit Kirchman is a composer, music producer, songwriter, singer, conductor, and multi-instrumentalist. She creates music for film and television, theater and dance, multimedia installations, and the concert stage. She is also an accomplished visual artist and author.

Recognized in the press as “an extremely original voice” with “a virtuoso touch,” and “a truly unique force in the entertainment industry”, Ronit is perhaps best known for her innovative, genre-bending score for The Sinner, the acclaimed Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated anthology series executive produced by Jessica Biel and starring Bill Pullman. Her score for The Sinner was one of IndieWire’s Top TV Scores in both 2020 and 2021 and has been nominated for a Jerry Goldsmith Award. Ronit also won a 2021 Hollywood Music In Media Award for her score for Evil Eye, a dramatic thriller feature from Blumhouse TV and Amazon Studios.

Other projects include her innovative hybrid score for the dystopian thriller series Limetown (Peacock), based on the hit podcast, and a wide-ranging trail of films and documentaries, including the newly released feature Manscaping. Ronit’s soundtracks and composition albums are commercially available through Lakeshore Records and Wild River Records.

Ronit is also active as an educator and mentor. As a board member of the Alliance for Women Film Composers, she co-founded its world-class Mentorship Program. She has also served as Composer-In-Residence at Columbia College Chicago, as an advisor at the Sundance Composers Lab, and as a guest lecturer at CalArts, Tufts, and Occidental College, as well as festivals such as FMP/Berlin.
