We at NYU Music Technology were happy to recently hear from one of our MM Alumni Erik Desiderio (class of ’04), who is now living in LA writing music for film and TV. Erik told us how he “worked on the music team for Immortals which was #1 at the box office, and Showtime’s “The Borgias” which won 2 Emmy’s, one for Main Title Music.” Erik also wrote the Music for the Emmy Ceremony, which was hosted by Jane Lynch. Congratulations Erik and we hope you continue to do well!
