A Bit About Me and My Work

Hello! I am a film composer specialising in orchestral soundtracks, based in North Yorkshire, UK. I am particularly interested in music and audio post-production for documentaries, but also have credits spanning a variety of short and feature-length films, with genres ranging from natural history to comedy, romantic comedy, thriller, corporate promotional material and animated productions.

In 2017, my re-score of The Mighty Coconut’s The OceanMaker was selected as the runner-up in the Emerging Composers category of the CINE Marvin Hamlisch Film Scoring Contest, in which over 600 composers took part internationally. The Evolution of Madagascar, on which I carried out all audio post-production, won ‘Best Student Film’ at the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival in 2016.

Alongside my compositional credits, I also have production experience in location audio recording, foley, ADR, sound design, sound editing and audio restoration (of both dialogue and music).

In 2016, I completed a BA in Music at the University of York, graduating with First Class Honours (with Distinction). In 2017, I completed a Masters Degree in Music Production at the University of York. As well as a working composer and audio post-producer, I am also a freelance French horn player in the Yorkshire area.

THE OCEANMAKER: CINE MARVIN HAMLISCH FILM SCORING CONTEST 2017

“To me, this is perfect execution of a film score. The use of instrumentation, the quality of the mix, the ebb and flow of drama to tell the story, all took me on a journey that the picture alone could not have done. Love the mood and tone you used to convey the situation of the protagonist. Masterfully done!”

THE EVOLUTION OF MADAGASCAR | HIGH WATER COMMON GROUND

“Peter is an exceptional young composer. He has a wonderful ability to not just create beautiful scores, but to discover and bring to life the soul of what he is scoring. While Peter is one of the most driven talents I have come across, applying his heart and soul into everything to which he lends his hand, he is also one of the easiest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with”.

Jack Rizzo

INNER ROGUES

“Peter’s work is fantastic; the incredibly nuanced and vibrant score he composed for me brought a whole new perspective to my short film and Inner Rogues would not be complete without it. I am so grateful to him for his work, and would gladly work with him in the future”.

THE EVOLUTION OF MADAGASCAR | HIGH WATER COMMON GROUND

“Peter is versatile and has a great ability to create moving and dynamic scores. His abilities are not limited to composition; Peter is also a capable and mindful sound designer, able to add real depth to the most simple scene”.

Suzanne Pearson

Nelly & Noah

“Peter is an excellent composer and, despite the tight deadline of a week and not much to go off, he created the perfect score for my film. I had a draft of one of the scores within a day. The music wasn’t just an accompaniment to the film, it added an extra character to it and I’m very pleased I asked him to compose for me, as the film wouldn’t be the same without it”.
