The head of production for the GNP/Crescendo label, and the son of label owner Gene Norman, Neil Norman has transformed his band, Neil Norman & His Cosmic Orchestra, into the world's leading authorities on science fiction-inspired music. Dressed in wild space-age clothing, the group, which features Norman on guitar and synthesizer, bassist J. Palmer, drummer Bart Robley, and ex-Tom Scott and Clark Terry keyboardist Bill Burchell, brings the full repertoire of sci-fi music to life.
A session guitarist as a teenager, Norman became resident film scorer as a student at UCLA Film School. He recorded his debut solo album, Not of This Earth, while still attending school.
A highly skilled producer, Norman has worked with such artists as the Ventures, Queen Ida, Robin Trower, and Savoy Brown. He served as executive producer of 20 [RoviLink="VW"]Star Trek albums, including soundtracks to [RoviLink="VW"]Generations and the Emmy award-winning [RoviLink="VW"]Star Trek Voyager, and produced the soundtrack recordings of [RoviLink="VW"]Mission: Impossible, [RoviLink="VW"]The Outer Limits, and [RoviLink="VW"]Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. ~ Craig Harris
