Peymon Maskan

Music Supervisor


Since 2012, I’ve been a Music Supervisor at Apple’s long standing external ad agency Media Arts Lab, and had the privilege of being the Music Director since 2015 and Global Music Director since 2017, leading a worldwide team.

We created iconic musical moments for the brand, including the Spike Jonze directed 2018 HomePod launch ad “Welcome Home”, which featured a new song by Anderson Paak, marking the beginning of his leap to mainstream awareness. 2018 also introduced our Grand Clio Music winning ad “Share Your Gifts” with original song by Billie Eilish. Our 2017 Silver Cannes Lion winning ad “Stroll” endeared Marian Hill’s “Down” to a worldwide audience, and Emmy Award winning “Misunderstood” hinged on a newly created cover from Cat Power. 

During my 7 years, the Music Department’s output increased 5 fold, while our global Music Supervision team tripled. We created hundreds of ads and worked with the most incredible storytellers and craftspeople around. My passion for being the Global Music Director to a world class creative team is only equaled by my love for working hands on as a Music Supervisor.

Before working in advertising, I was Music Supervisor for over 30 film and TV projects. Working on projects of all lengths has given me a unique perspective on the role of music for many platforms and story types. 

As I create my next chapter, I am open to something totally unexpected or uniquely challenging.
