Born in Guernsey, Angus is a composer and pianist now living and working in London, writing music for film, theatre, dance and the concert hall. Since graduating in 2011 with a degree in music from the University of Nottingham, he has composed for award winning films, critically acclaimed plays and international advertising campaigns screened around the world. Recent work for the stage includes music and sound for The Curing Room (Pleas-ance Theatre, Edinburgh/London), God’s Own Country (ZOO, Edinburgh), John Ferguson, Dream of Perfect Sleep, Armstrong’s War, Lee Harvey Oswald, Nothing is the End of the World (Finborough Theatre), Holiday & The Eisteddfod (Bussey Building), I Am A Camera (Southwark Playhouse) and other work at theatres including the National Theatre Studio, Yvonne Arnaud, Watford Palace and the Old Red Lion. Work for contemporary dance includes original music for Meeting, choreographed by Wayne Parsons, which premiered at The Place, London, and was subsequently selected as a finalist in the Copenhagen International Choreography Competition.
Selected work for film includes The Listener and The Other Side of Home, due for release later in 2015. Angus has previously worked on The Fifth, winner of the Raindance Film Festival 48-hour film competition, and Thirst, a short psycho-logical thriller starring Mark Bonnar. Original music for advertising includes international campaigns for Sony and Toyota, and music arrangement for Sky’s recent campaign featuring Harrison Ford.
As a performer, Angus was recently commissioned to improvise live to the work of 10 internationally acclaimed photographers as part of the Guernsey Photography Festival, and this work will form the basis of a new EP of original music, due for release in 2015.
