The Composer Works, based in MediaCityUK's production community, offers ten select UK/US composers - all with complementary styles.
This cuts out the work involved in calling around in the hope of finding, for example, a dance composer or an orchestral specialist or a song writer.
The following are media genres which our composers provide original music for:
All our composers have fully equipped, state of the art studios with live recording facilities.
Free Sourcing and Placement of our Existing Music
The Composer Works offers a free library music sourcing and placement service. This means that if budgets are limited, we will find suitable music from our various music back catalogues and edit it to picture, free of charge, for use. All our music is PRS/MCPS registered.
Music Supervision and Licensing of Commercial Music
We also advise on music content. If it is a song you are after, but not sure which, or you have an idea of a song for music to put onto picture but need direction, The Composer Works can assist.
Licensing a song can be complicated. We will facilitate it all by overseeing legal and financial aspects of licensing and finalising uses of songs. We work with you to get the best music solution available, either by licensing pre-existing songs on your behalf or creating new ones.
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.
