    About me

    Classically trained, Michael is a vastly experienced composer, orchestrator and conductor who holds a Doctorate in composition (Leeds) in addition to numerous Fellowship awards. His catalogue of chamber music is published globally and he has been fortunate to receive three Royal Premieres, in addition to several broadcasts on national radio and television.

    In 2010, he orchestrated numerous tracks for the Columbia Artists US touring show Celtic Circle before becoming increasingly in demand for production music. Most notably he composed the winning entry to the ThinkSpace Trailer Competition (‘The Edge’).

    In 2017, he received recognition for his scores to the dark drama ‘Hookworm’ (BFI premiere) and 'Beyond the Horizon' (RTS Nomination). 2019 bought more success with ‘Tundra’ being a winning entry at the Short Sounds Film Festival. This was followed up by ‘Edge of Audible’ also winning in the same category in 2020.

    His catalogue of library music is available to industry through BMG and Platinum Music, and has received placements on a number of primetime productions (BBC, ITV, CBS, FOX).

    More recently Michael has scored the comedy ‘The Witch Hunters are Coming’, the children’s feature ‘Skullz’ (Sky, Amazon, itunes) and the horror 'Harvest of the Dead: Halloween Night', in addition to serving as Music Editor on the feature ‘Dead Fred' (Sky, Amazon, iTunes).

    Influenced by the likes of Olafur Arnalds and Johann Johannsson, Michael’s preferred style is very much about orchestral and synth subtlety; those ethereal ‘edge of audible’ timbres which often add a disproportionate amount of value to the narrative and sub-text in thrillers and dramas.
