    Default Thomas Newman

    I enjoy a lot of his music that he has made for movies. Especially for Shawshank Redemption, Road to Perdition, and American Beauty.

    Does anyone know any other composers that have made this kind of music?

    You hear quite a few composers trying to sound like Thomas Newman these days, but no-one succeeds just as no-one can sound like John Williams (though Danny Elfman tries very hard). You might like to check out the Penguin Cafe Orchestra for some slightly skewed chamber music that's not a million miles away from Newman. They were led by Simon Jeffes who passed away a few years ago. You'll probably know some of their stuff as it gets used in TV ads all the time.
