Zach co-composed and oversaw all music production for YouTube Red's first developed sitcom, Sing It!, created by YouTube superstars, Benny and Rafi fine. He again collaborated with the Fine Bros for 2017's feature film, F The Prom. He also wrote the theme song for USA Network's NFL Football Fanatic. In parallel to his composing career, Zach creates 1980's inspired electronic music under the pseudonym D/A/D.
Composer Leo Birenberg’S music is featured in Fox’s celebrated hybrid animation series Son of Zorn. Leo has also been a frequent collaborator of composer Christophe Beck, working as a writer, arranger, and producer and has contributed additional music to a number of films, including Frozen, Edge of Tomorrow, Ant-Man, and The Peanuts Movie.
Zach Robinson and Leo Birenberg have co-composed the score for YouTube Red's mega-hit series Cobra Kai, which takes place in the Karate Kid universe thirty-four years after the original film, THE KARATE KID, and stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprising their original roles.
In this episode, composers Zach Robinson and Leo Birenberg open up their original score for COBRA KAI and reveal how they resurrect the spirit of the original KARATE KID. While moving in the music in a contemporary direction they invoke classic retro 80s synth and guitar, traditional flutes and japanese koto, while building to a climactic finale incorporating a 70 piece orchestra.
