LOS ANGELES - Feb. 5, 2020 - PRLog -- Daniel Rojas has become the first half Hispanic, half Asian composer to score a series for an American media service provider. The show is Dreamwork Animation's latest project for Netflix, titled Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts. Some of Daniel's other titles include the Oscar-winning movie Room with Brie Larson, Jodie Foster's thriller Money Monster starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts; and Alexander Payne's Downsizing starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig. The soundtrack for the show is available now from Back Lot Music.

When discussing working on the project Daniel says, "Growing up in an Asian family in Latin America, I was introduced to very different genres of music early on that I have been able to build upon since moving to the United States for college. What has been great about this show is it has allowed me to use all of these different types of musical styles that are not traditional to animation."

Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts follows a young girl named Kipo who emerges from her life underground only to be thrust into an adventure on the surface of a fantastical post-apocalyptic Earth. She joins a ragtag group of survivors as they embark on a journey through a vibrant wonderland where everything that's trying to kill them also happens to be downright adorable.

The show was created and executive produced by Radford Sechrist (How to Train Your Dragon 2) and executive produced and developed for television by Bill Wolkoff (The Man Who Fell to Earth).


Born and raised in the Costa Rican town of Heredia, Daniel has written music for over 60 feature films, TV shows and video-games. His latest project being the DreamWorks Animation series for Netflix titled "Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts". Other titles include the Oscar-winning movie "Room" (Brie Larson), Jodie Foster's thriller "Money Monster" starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts; and Alexander Payne's latest movie, "Downsizing" starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig. In addition to film scoring, he has produced and arranged a wide variety of songs for several labels under Sony Music and Universal Music Group.
