Cliff Eidelman in the 1990's

"With Star Trek I just felt so good about doing that, and being part of such a legacy, a part of history that would live on... I would have loved to do more Star Trek movies."
- Cliff Eidelman in 1998

One of the few Los Angeles-born composers working in Hollywood, Cliff Eidelman (born 1964) began his formal musical training at the age of eight, studying the violin. After experimenting with the jazz guitar, he trained at Santa Monica City College, where he received his two commissions (the ballet Once Upon a Ruler and Celebration Symphony Overture in Three Movements). After enrolling in the music program at USC, Eidelman received his first lucky break into film scoring, with an offer to write for the feature film Magdalene. Recorded with a stunningly large orchestra and choir in Europe, the score showcased Eidelman's ability to write an epic and melodic score. After providing an equally impressive score for the WWII drama Triumph of the Spirit in 1989, Eidelman expanded beyond the television venue in which had been concentrating and wrote his two fan favorite scores, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and Christopher Columbus: The Discovery.
