Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2016 Venice International Film Festival. From writer/director Tom Ford comes a haunting romantic thriller of shocking intimacy and gripping tension that explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption. Academy Award nominees Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star as a divorced couple discovering dark truths about each other and themselves in “Nocturnal Animals.” Rated R (for violence, menace, graphic nudity, and language).

The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: Nocturnal Animals - Abel KorzeniowskiGolden Globe and Emmy-nominated composer Abel Korzeniowski’s work in film music places him in a small group of composers destined to define the future of the art form. His most recent film, Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals,” starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal, has been gaining high praise at both the Venice Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.  Abel's score has also been getting a lot of attention, with The Hollywood Reporter saying, "The tempestuous strings of Abel Korzeniowski's lush score provide an additional ballsy flourish, explicitly nodding to Hitchcock and Sirk.”

This is the second collaboration between Ford and Korzeniowski.  They also worked together on Ford’s first film, “A Single Man,” starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore.  Abel’s stirring score earned him a Golden Globe nomination, as well as the attention of Madonna, who chose him to score the film, “W.E.,” for which he received his second Golden Globe nomination.  Described as stylish and bittersweet, the score for “W.E.” brilliantly reflects the glamorous romance between Wallis Simpson and The Duke of Windsor.  Evgeni’s Waltz, a piano piece from “W.E.,” became the basis of a new version of Madonna’s hit Like a Virgin, performed during her 2012 MDNA world tour.  In addition, Abel has won three World Soundtrack Awards, as well as the 2013 International Film Music Critics Association Composer of the Year Award for his work on “Romeo & Juliet” and “Escape From Tomorrow.”  

Abel also received several accolades for his work on Showtime's “Penny Dreadful.”  In addition to his BAFTA win, he received his third Emmy nomination for his work on the show this year.  The soundtrack albums for “Penny Dreadful” Seasons 2 & 3 (a double album), and “Nocturnal Animals” will come out in October and November respectively.

In addition to his film scoring work, Korzeniowski has created musical identities for some of the world’s most prestigious brands, including BMW-i Electric Vehicles and Tiffany & Co.  His music has also been featured on the runways of major fashion designers around the world, including Tom Ford, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Boss, Carolina Herrera, and Alberta Ferretti.

Born in Krakow, Poland, Korzeniowski studied classical composition under the world-renowned composer Krzysztof Penderecki. In 2006, he moved to Los Angeles. He currently resides in the Hollywood Hills.
