Ozie Cargile bio
Ozie Cargile is a composer from Detroit, Michigan. At eleven, his music teacher sparked his interest in music whereupon he taught himself to play the piano. Greatly inspired by the pieces of John Williams (Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Harry Potter…) and other legendary composers, Cargile decided to advance his studies in composition and orchestration at the University of Michigan School of Music. Clearly following the simple yet powerful advice once given to him by the late Jerry Goldsmith (“Study.”), he earned a Bachelor of Music Composition with a principle degree in piano performance.In 2011, his choral orchestral work “Song for Humanity” was premiered by the Boulder Symphony of Boulder, Colorado in collaboration with the 150-voice Boulder Chorale as a precursor to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. In the same year, he joined the open, collaborative production company HitRECord, founded by actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Since then, Cargile has written a notable number of records for different projects on HitRECord and frequently does collaborations with fellow “HitRECorders”. For example, Cargile scored Strawberry Bootlaces, which premiered at Sundance 2012, and a number of animated shorts for HitRECord on TV, which airs on Pivot Cable Television.Renowned Orchestras such as the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s in New York have performed several of his other works. He also serves as the composer-in-residence for the annual “Tribute to Black Pioneers in Music Performance”, an operatic concert series produced by Fredrick Peterbark in collaboration with universities and symphonies across the country.Throughout the years, Cargile has studied with several distinguished composers including Michael Daugherty, Erik Santos, Susan Botti and Bright Sheng. Recently, he successfully completed the “Hollywood Music Workshop” in Austria, where he took classes in orchestration and arranging with Conrad Pope and Nan Schwartz.Cargile sees it as a musician’s duty to raise consciousness about important issues concerning humanity and is convinced that this can only be done through strategic promotion and social networking. While partaking in various different projects, he constantly works on improving himself, on getting more knowledgeable and on meeting new people.
