Originally from Southern Indiana, Duncan Kirk Bohannon is a composer and pianist based in Los Angeles, CA.

By 21, Duncan had already earned two bachelor’s degrees in music from Indiana University and a master’s degree in Film Music Composition from the North Carolina School of the Arts. At present, his array of credits includes feature films, audio dramas, media for non-profits, web video, custom music libraries, and over 15 short films. He is also a prolific piano accompanist, playing regularly at USCAMDA College & Conservatory, and several churches across Los Angeles.

Duncan currently lives in Glendale, CA, with his wife and daughter.



I hired Duncan to score the composition for the feature-length film ‘And We Will Dance’ that I directed. Duncan exceeded my expectations and gave my film a much richer, deeper experience for the viewer. I loved his attention to timing and detail in creating the right mood at the right time. He is great to work with.

His original scores brought a level of professionalism to our videos we have never experienced before. The response has already been amazing and I know hearts are still being moved. We were amazed at the high quality of his work based on the short window of time he was given. We look forward to working with Duncan again.

Duncan did a wonderful job for me on multiple occasions. I work on two very different TV shows. The maturity and skill he brought to the job is surprising, considering his young age. I look forward to working with Duncan again soon.

Duncan Kirk Bohannon is one of the most capable, intelligent, creative, and efficient assistants I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Not insignificantly, he also happens to be a superbly talented composer and musician. Duncan’s work ethic is unparalleled . . . His communication, as well as his ability to self-start and self-manage, was a godsend at the time he worked with me, and I often find myself interviewing potential assistants about their skill sets based on what I miss about Duncan’s. I cannot recommend Duncan more highly—he is the real deal.
