Solowsky was recognized for his contribution to the highly acclaimed, “No One Ever Wins: Lebanon in the Summer of Hezbollah” written and produced by journalist Krisztian K. Orban, an illustrative study of the consequences brought on by the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict.
Hailing from a rich and diverse cultural background, Solowsky is well-versed in performance art, particularly the instrumental intricacies of guitar, piano and vocal repertoire. As a skilled singer, Solowsky was chosen as a back-up singer for the world famous performer Barbra Streisand during her performance at the 53rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Show. Together with his lifelong friend, singer-songwriter Bob Coburn, Solowsky has recorded dozens of guitar instrumental works.
During the composer’s studies at the prestigious University of Southern California (USC) Film Scoring Program in Los Angeles, California, then headed by the renowned Walt Disney Studios composer, Buddy Baker, he was privileged to have worked under prolific legends of the film score world, to include Christopher Young (Spiderman 3, The Grudge, Runaway Jury, The Shipping News), Elmer Bernstein (The Magnificent Seven, Ghostbusters, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Ten Commandments), David Raksin (Laura, Forever Amber, The Bad and The Beautiful), David Bell (Star Trek: Enterprise, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Joe Harnell (The Incredible Hulk, V), Jack Smalley, David Spear and George Burt.
