Luke Mullet is a 23-year-old composer from the United States. "His compositions are directly emotional, reminiscent of epic movie scores flavored with a Celtic-Tibetan fusion" (Eastern Mennonite University News).
With over 9 years of composing experience, Luke has a variety of musical skill sets and is proficient with digital audio workstations as well as orchestrating for live performance. His emotional and instrumental versatility has allowed him to write music for documentaries (Seeds of Peace: A Trek for Change, No Longer Theory), commercials (Ten Thousand Villages, EMU Engineering), podcasts (Peacebuilder, Shifting Climates), video games (Lantern Light Studios), and live performances (choral, strings, orchestral).
Luke is currently writing music for the Peacebuilder Podcast by the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding at EMU (the first episode will be released Jan. 22, 2020). Luke scored Zo the Zebra, a 2019 holiday commercial campaign for Ten Thousand Villages (a fair trade non-profit organization).
He also has recently composed several original film scores. He scored No Longer Theory, a film about two UN peacemakers, Michael (MJ) Sharp and Zaida Catalan, who were killed in the DRC in 2017. The film and score are to be released in 2020. In addition, he scored Seeds of Peace: A Trek for Change, a short film about the journey to release the ashes of MJ Sharp from the peak of Kilimanjaro.
In collaboration with artist Nicole Litwiller and writer Lindsay Acker in 2019, Luke composed an electroacoustic soundscape for a mixed-media project telling and expressing the stories of survivors of sexual assault titled Do Not Discard. The piece has been presented at Eastern Mennonite University, the 2019 Global Mennonite Peacebuilding Festival and Conference in the Netherlands, and the 2019 national conference for the Survivors Network for those Abused by Priests in Washington D.C.
Luke also is a composer for the video game development company, Lantern Light Studios, and wrote the music for the Shifting Climates Podcast. His work has been displayed as an audio installment in the Oscillations art show in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Luke also has had multiple pieces performed by EMU's University Choir, Emulate Chamber Ensemble, String Orchestra, and piano students.
Luke was honored for his achievement in music composition and choral music at EMU's Fall Student Recognition chapel on December 8, 2017.
Luke graduated from EMU in 2019 after studying music composition with composer Ryan Keebaugh. He also sang baritone in the Eastern Mennonite University Emulate Chamber Ensemble and University Choir.
