Graham has scored a lot of theater but the bulk of it has been with two nationally-recognized companies, the Rude Mechs and Salvage Vanguard Theater. Austin is an extremely active theater town with multiple companies producing shows year-round. Look for Graham’s work with the Rude Mechs as The Method Gun tours the country.


From a sci-fi theremin filled score for Requiem for Tesla to sound design and piano score for the currently touring The Method Gun, Graham has been working with the Rudes for the last decade. Austin’s premiere, internationally-acclaimed company, the Rude Mechs made collaborative work represents Texas theater at top venues and festivals around the world.
