Joe Wiedemann has scored music for film, news specials, documentaries, and commercial videos, since 1981. Also a broadcast videographer, his experience behind the camera has influenced his music. Born in Gary, Indiana, a lifelong musical background merged with a broadcast television career in 1978 for Wiedemann. While studying music at the University of Evansville, he spent nearly all of his savings on a rare and expensive PolyMoog synthesizer. He began experimenting with electronic music, and tape-to-tape overdubbing. That same year he began his video production and storytelling career as a news videographer with the ABC affiliate in Evansville, Indiana.
Since 1981, Joe has been a videographer and editor with KFMB-TV (CBS) in San Diego, crafting stories daily with video. On many occasions, these stories and documentaries called for custom music.
His classical style of blending electronic and orchestral instruments became known as Orchestronics®.
