Chris Warner

Composer & Sound Designer

  • Location: Cambridgeshire
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a composer, sound designer, arranger and orchestrator working in Theatre and Media. I love telling stories with music and sound. I have a meticulous ear for detail and work to the highest production values. I am passionate about exploring new ways of creating original work and believe in the power of collaboration in all areas of my work. I am privileged to have worked with inspirational and talented arttists and in world famous studios and institutions.

My music for TV and Film has been recorded at Abbey Road Studios (orchestral and chamber music albums) and mixed by the music industry legends such as Haydn Bendall (Kate Bush, Pet Shop Boys, Massive Attack Katie Melua, Leona Lewis) and Rob Kelly (DJ Yoda, Johh Altman, James Seymour Brett). I also have experience of working in other top London studios (AIR, ANGEL and STRONGROOM). I have orchestrated and arranged music for the musical theatre stage and for television, including the arrangements for the Children's BAFTA nominated BBC Make A Musical. I have worked on the additional orchestrations and score preparations for film soundtracks (including the award-winning COMMON PEOPLE) commercials and promo videos (Carolina Herrera S/S 13 runway show in New York) and even a full length orchestral ballet ('Waiting Room', Thüringen Staatsballet in Germany) for which I did additional synth programming. I have also composed incidental music and themes for a number of BBC Radio features and documentaries, including the theme for Radio 2's A History of British Comedy with David Mitchell.

I've composed original scores and created the sound design for over 20 theatre productions, working at The Lyric Belfast, RSC Studio, and on groundbreaking productions such as 'The Boat Factory' which enjoyed sell out tours throughout the UK, Europe and Off-Broadway in New York. I have several of my own theatre projects in various stages of development and am always looking for future R&D opportunities with new collaborators.
