    About me

    Brian Madigan has a long track record scoring to picture and has worked with some big names in the industry: award-winning film & TV director Iain B McDonald, award-winning CG animator Paul Smith and acclaimed theatre directors Andy Burden and Jon Nicholson, among others. Brian has also supplied music for a range of big-brand advertising clients - including Wilkinson Sword, Shell, Comfort, Nestle, Kit Kat and Felix - and is the UK's leading provider of music for Dance education.

    As a performer, Brian has worked in everything from pit orchestras to punk bands: this live experience adds great depth to his musical understanding and helps to inform his composition. Currently, Brian fronts his own group 'a Band named Brian' on guitar and vocals and plays drums and percussion in a variety of other bands.

    Brian has worked as visiting lecturer at Bath Spa University and provides music-for-picture workshops for the Diploma in Creative Media in Wiltshire. He has run music improvisation workshops in a number of settings, including theatre summer-schools, Dance courses and for volunteer workers in Africa.

    Referees

    “Brian has produced work for us on our TV commercials and In-house projects. He quickly comes up with good ideas and is very adaptable. It’s great to work with a musician like Brian, who, apart from being very tolerant of my sudden idea-changes, understands how the music can not only illustrate the visuals, but enhance them too.”

    Paul Smith; Moving House Films

    “Brian Madigan has a great sense of adding atmosphere to scenes within film using simple motifs that don’t overwrite the images. Working with Brian was a very rewarding experience. He immediately could see what I wanted and put together rough ideas very quickly. Then he organised musicians, the recording space and put together the finished score before our deadline.”

    Oscar Stringer; Southstreet Productions

    “Working with Brian is a pleasure, he is an artist and professional, both laid-back and reliable. I am able to have a two-way discussion with him and he is capable of receiving constructive criticism of his work. He delivered on the brief at very short notice, yet was still able to accommodate my ‘directorial meddling’ and to interpret my sometimes poorly articulated ramblings with patience and precision. Many thanks!”
