László Melis (b. Budapest, Hungary, 14 August 1953) is a Hungarian composer and violinist. He writes primarily in the minimal style and his compositions are often characterized by a propulsive, bouncy quality.

Melis has composed music for film, winning the Award for Best Music for his work in the animated pieces, A szél ("The Wind") and Gyurmatek ("Clay Play") at the 2nd Kecskemét Animation Film Festival.[1] He has also worked extensively in theater, creating incidental music for theatrical productions. His compositions have been recorded by the BMC and Hungaroton labels.
