The Composer Works is the complete music company at MediaCityUK in Salford, Greater Manchester.
Led by Steve Berman, whose industry experience includes working as a music editor in Hollywood and managing composers at a Pinewood Studios-based company, ten of the country's finest composers have come together to form The Composer Works.
All our composers specialise in different music styles, enabling us to offer a complete range of music services across all media.
Their credits range from music for the X Factor UK/USA to preview music for theatrical trails to The Dark Knight Rises.
We serve MediaCityUK productions and beyond with the finest composers.
Whatever the circumstances are, there will never be a need to look outside of our studio doors for music.
Banks & Wag turn up the heat with Simon Cowell show
The Composer Works' composers, Banks & Wag, have written the music to Simon Cowell's new cookery talent show, Food Glorious Food.
The series, co-produced by Syco and Optomen Television, is “the biggest ever search for Britain’s best-loved recipe”, with judges including culinary experts Lloyd Grossman and Tom Parker-Bowles.
Food Glorious Food features recipes "cooked with love by mums, dads, husbands and wives, grannies, families and friends all over Britain". The winning dish will be sold nationwide in Marks and Spencer.
Banks & Wag, who previously worked with Cowell on The X Factor, describe the new show as “Very British. It’s full of quirky, eccentric characters, and we wanted our music to reflect that. It might be a tense competition, but it’s got real heart, too.”
Their music includes the theme, stings, bumpers and beds during the show.
Paul Honey scored Blandings, a BBC series with a host of stars.
The series, set in the 1930s tells the story of Clarence (Timothy Spall), his more sensible sister Connie (Jennifer Saunders) and his butler Beach (Mark Williams).
David Walliams starred in two episodes as Rupert Baxter, Clarence’s new secretary who is hired by Connie to help bring some order to Clarence’s life.
Paloma Faith played Georgia, a dancer from London, who accompanies Freddie to Blandings and creates quite a stir with Beach.
David Bamber played Herr Schnellhund, Clarence’s irritatingly bearded dance teacher.)
The series aired in January 2013 on BBC 1.
Old Jack's Boat comes to CBeebies' shores with a score by Paul Honey and performed by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra
Paul Honey has recorded an original score for the brand new series Old Jack's Boat with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.
The recording took place at Dock10, MediaCityUK, the new home of the BBC Philharmonic. 10 cues have been recorded including a 90 second title sequence.
Star of both stage and screen, Bernard Cribbins (Faulty Towers, Doctor Who, Jackanory) stars as Old Jack in the show, a 25-part CBeebies series about the past adventures of a fisherman and his dog.
Cribbins will be joined by Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Law and Order UK), as Shelley, with Doctor Who writer Russell T Davies penning two episodes of the show - the first time he has written for pre-schoolers.
The series will be shown on CBeebies throughout 2013.
