The Red, White & Blue Project, Inc.
Dennis Therrian, Co-Founder
A classically-trained pianist, Dennis Therrian is the consummate professional musician and performer who is the driving technical/creative force behind audio/music/video composition and editing here at The Red, White and Blue Project.

     For more than 30 years Dennis has been a mainstay on the legendary Michigan (and Motown) musical scene, having performed with bands entertaining audiences with a full range of styles, from rock n' roll, salsa and big band, to contemporary/acoustic jazz and blues.

     Performing has also taken Dennis around the world and blessed him with the opportunity play with some of the music industry's giants.

     For the past 15 years, Dennis' original scores have graced more than a dozen feature films, in genres ranging from horror, fantasy and drama, to Biblical, murder mystery, comedy and The Red, White and Blue Project' recently completed documentary and flagship film, the critically-acclaimed “Outside the Wire: The Forgotten Children of Afghanistan.”

     In a recent commercial video for JBL, Dennis served as musical director and sound designer on the project which included The Who and Santana as featured artists.

     Dennis' career and talents only begin as a musical performer and composer.

     In addition to supervising all aspects of studio post-production for The Red, White and Blue Project - from editing and sound design, to composing original music and scores – Dennis has added Producer to his portfolio and career responsibilities.

     Dennis, who has worked as post-production supervisor, composer, editor and sound designer for several film companies across the U.S., has also served and continues in his capacity as Supervising Sound Editor on film locations wherever it takes him around the globe.

     A native of Grand Ledge, Michigan, Dennis works out of his state-of-the-art recording studio and editing suite.
 A driven and self-professed “Perfectionist” who is a stickler for detail, Dennis also serves as an adjunct professor in Music Technology at Lansing Community College, an institution well-known for its prowess in theater, music and audio/visual arts.

     Dennis says that extending his experience, expertise and creativity to young people in the classroom has been, “a joy, very fulfilling.” He also is a key member of the group Layers/ LCC Faculty Jazz Quartet, whose first album, No Vacancy, was recorded and mixed at Dennis' studio.

I have been creating music from the age of 6.  At age 12 and 13 my original piano composition and playing won me 2 years in a row an invitation to attend Interlochen Summer Arts Camp for young artists. I have performed music live from the 8th grade to present, performing all styles of music like Rock, Funk, Blues, Jazz, Salsa. I am currently the Pianist in the Lansing Community College  Faulty Jazz Quartet.
