  • About me

    Gavin Manuel is a Welsh TV and Film Composer, currently based in North Wales. Having studied at Bangor University and the London College of Music, Gavin has composed for a variety of critically acclaimed short films. His most recent score was for the independent short film, ‘Out of Focus’, which has been nominated for numerous international awards. Gavin has also seen success in composition competitions, winning the film music composition competition at the Welsh National Eisteddfod in 2017.

In recent years he has orchestrated and copied instrumental parts for some of Tadlow Music’s classic film score reconstructions and for orchestral recording sessions for UK DVD releases and TV Commercials.
