Aidan Salier is a Los Angeles-based composer, guitarist and songwriter.

His work in film/TV includes music for TRY HARDER!, which premiered in competition at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival; New Yorker Documentary SINCE YOU ARRIVED, MY HEART STOPPED BELONGING TO ME; and two seasons of IDA and Gotham Award-nominated series THE F WORD.

As of 2022 Aidan is releasing new music as Small Future, starting with Beach Games, a nine-song album of instrumental guitar pop/indie surf inspired by summer days in the 90s, growing up minutes from the Pacific. He is also writing and producing sad funeral anxiety dream, a collection of singles from Small Future due out in 2023.

In addition to his scoring and solo work, Aidan is a touring member of The Black Heartthrobs, and an enthusiastic amateur runner. You can often find him outside the studio, putting one foot in front of the other.
