Ego Plum composes the music of Making Fiends

Ego Plum

Ego Plum is a composer, musician and artist from Los Angeles. His inventiveness, sense of humor and general fiendishness has made him the ideal composer for Making Fiends. When the animation for a Making Fiends episode is finished, Ego creates music for many of the scenes. Ego also provides accompaniment for the silly songs that Amy writes for Charlotte.
