ABOUT ME

Currently based in LA, Nika Ko (they/them) works as a pianist and freelance composer for films and other visual media. As a young person in Portland, Oregon, Ko loved playing jazz gigs and writing tunes, and competed on a national level in jazz big bands and as a soloist. Now a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, Ko has studied piano and film composition with many visionaries including Grammy-winner Claudio Ragazzi, NEA jazz master Joanne Brackeen, and Grammy-winner/NEA jazz master Terri Lyne Carrington. Ko has since worked as a composer assistant and personal assistant for Carrington, and worked as a contract music supervisor, music editor, and composer for San Francisco-based company 6andLine Productions. They have also scored several student films, including a feature length documentary about the Bollywood film industry entitled "Dream Factory," and a horror/comedy short entitled "Red Dot Special." As a pianist, you can hear Ko’s playing as a sideman on Fall Raye’s album “Fall,” which was recently released on Boomslang Records.
