"Wirsig takes the soul of sound and uses it as a weapon" *

Welcome to my dark world of music

I'm a composer, producer and songwriter, based in Los Angeles, and have been writing music for over 25 years, with 50 releases to date. Since moving to LA in November 2015 I've had my music placed on numerous TV shows, and wrote the score for several multi award-winning short films. I'm also co-writing with other songwriters, and producing other artists, so please check out my work - welcome to my dark world of music...

Music for film & TV

Even if it often is subtle, music is such an integral part of a movie or TV show, as it needs to help tell the story, and support the emotions, moods and atmosphere of a certain scene.
As a composer my job is to support the story and characters of your project without taking over, but with a memorable, immersive sound.

Arrangement & Production

If you like songs that are unique, have some twists and turns, and create an immersive atmosphere, I'd love to work together with you.
By mixing electronic and acoustic instruments, I'll help you to create a truly captivating (often cinematic) song that stands out - realizing your vision, working together for a memorable track.


I've been writing songs for my own projects for over 25 years, and I'm constantly co-writing & producing songs with artists songwriters like Psyche, Liza Marie Sparks, Queen Chameleon, Roxanne Seeman, Lori Barth, Audio Terrorist, Melissa Harding, and many others.
Hit me up if you would like to write something memorable together...

Trailerization, Remix, Cover

Let's take your song to another level, reimagine it in a different style.
How about a trailerization - making it more epic or creepy for film trailers? Or make it into an unusual remix, blending it with new elements, transforming the song with new meaning?

Chris Wirsig

Chris Wirsig is an award-winning composer, songwriter and producer, who enjoyed classical training on piano and saxophone, studied audio engineering at SAE Technology College, and has more than 20 years experience in music production. His music can be heard in games like the acclaimed Top Ten iPad game "Alien Tribe 2," the multiple award-winning short movies "Intervention," "20 Matches," "Cat Dexx: Inkosi," and "Trick Of The Old Cat," the comedy feature film "39 And A Half," and in numerous TV shows on ABC, E!, MTV, Fox Sports, Audience Network/DirecTV, and others.
Current and upcoming projects include music for the pilot for a tech-horror web series, "Glitch," an LGBTQ+ animated comedy series, and a charity project with an orchestral cover version of Depeche Mode's "People Are People," a project with 36 musicians and singers, benefitting several organizations fighting for justice and equality, arranged and produced solely by Chris.
On the songwriting/producing side, Chris started the acclaimed Electro Pop/Dark Wave band no:carrier in 1995 and the Electronica/Chill-Out project Virtual Conformity in 2001, as well as several side projects. He's also co-writing and producing songs with other artists and songwriters like Psyche, Liza Marie Sparks, Queen Chameleon, The Dust Ryde, echoekill, and many others.
After studying audio engineering in the late 1990's, he worked as editor for the musician & tech magazines "KEYS" and "Studio Post Pro," and founded the first German fair-trade record label, NovaTune.
Chris is a Grammy Voting Member, as well as a member of the Society Of Composers and Lyricists, for which he also served as LA Administrator for two years.




  • Chris Wirsig is one of my favorite composers because he is very professional, highly creative,
    provides quick turnaround, and most importantly, immediately understands
    what the music needs of a project are, and delivers the score on time.
    Linda Palmer, writer/director/producer

  • Chris has a tremendous talent for evocative orchestration; using unique scoring techniques
    that also call upon the brilliant use of the orchestral textures found in natural instrument
    playing in combination with electronic sounds to creat audio atmospheres of great imagination.
    Michael & Patty Silversher, songwriters/composers for Disney, Jim Henson Company

  • Chris Wirsig is an incredibly talented, caring, professional and innovative person to work with.
    He has an excellent ear and is extremely patient, focused and diligent in his work ethic.
    Love working with Chris, he‘s a wonderful composer.
    Maria Di Cara, vocalist/vocal library producer

  • I chose Chris because I wanted a score that could feel both menacing and modern, with dense texture
    while being sparse and claustrophobic at the same time. Chris and I got on the same page pretty fast,
    and by the time he sent me the music for the end credits, it was perfect.
    Mark Tapio Kines, writer/director

  • Working with Chris has been one of the best experiences of my music career. He can turn a bus ride idea
    into a full song with different versions to suit the need of film, TV or single release.
    Chris makes you feel like an equal partner yet making your music shine and your journey with him special.
    Liza Marie Sparks, singer/songwriter

  • I‘ve had the pleasure of working with Chris in a number of ways. He leveraged his keen ear to present me
    in my best light, he crafted unique and creative arrangements & quickly composed music as my songs developed in the studio.
    To say that working with Chris has changed my life is an understatement.
    Kalib DuArte, singer/songwriter/producer

  • When I launched my TV show, „Nadya‘s Identity Files,“ Chris composed a theme song
    that is unique, cutting edge & transcendental. I was not only impressed by his unique sound
    but also his professionalism, extraordinary fast turnaround, flexibility, and all around kind and supportive demeanor.
    Nadya Rousseau, producer

  • I've had the pleasure of recording several songs with Chris Wirsig over the years.
    He has the ability to hone in on the essence of whatever instrument & extract a quality of sound which fits the mood and feeling of the song.
    He is easy going, has a brilliant, open mind and is adroit at what he does.
    Lauralee Brown, singer/songwriter

  • Chris Wirsig is one of my favorite people in the world to work with. He's very open to new ideas & encourages experimentation.
    He's also extremely adept at organizing large groups to bring projects to life in a quick and efficient manner.
    Chris is the kind of guy to get the job done and have you smiling the entire time!
    JD McGibney, guitarist/session musician

  • The song "My Father's Hands" is a gift from my daughter Karyssa Lynne.
    Chris Wirsig, using his extensive editing and mastering skills, took this song and brought it to a higher level.
    Chris helped my daughter finish it professionally, a gift that will stay with me until the day I die.
    Carlos Zaldivar
