Bio

Daniel Pemberton is an Ivor Novello winning and multi-BAFTA nominated composer who works predominantly in film, television and videogames. His credits include everything from feature films such as The Awakening and the Sundance Jury winning Enemies Of The People to cult British television shows such as Peep Show, Hells Kitchen and Great British Menu. He has written the score for the second best selling Xbox 360 game of all time (Kinect Adventures) as well as creating the iconic theme for Sony's LittleBIGPlanet. He has created the soundtracks for countless award winning drama series - from the BBC's highly anticipated revival of Upstairs Downstairs to the multi award winning Iraq war series Occupation; adaptations of Martin Amis' Money to Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently. He has also scored countless Emmy, BAFTA, Grierson and RTS winning comedies, documentaries and lifestyle shows and worked with Oscar winning directors and editors.

His ability to jump genres effortlessly yet still bring a unique and recognizable sound to every project saw him named as 'one of the hottest people working in television today' by Broadcast magazine, who praised him as 'a composer prepared to take risks'. These have featured everything from a 70 piece orchestra to kazoos and a drum machine; big band jazz set ups to intricate electronic sound design; Ghanian cover bands to Armenian flautists; community choirs to post-rock guitarists. His innovative Ivor Novello winning score to BBC drama Desperate Romantics is testament to this approach - fusing glam rock beats with period drama aesthetics it quickly became one of the most acclaimed scores of the year.

Whilst Daniel has done many things - co founder of the infamous Shoreditch Twat fanzine, journalist for i-D magazine, fashion show music director for designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Erdem, Boudicca and Eley Kishimoto, author of nicely designed toilet humour books, backer of controversial operas, collaborator with international artists - it is perhaps through this eclectic soundtrack work that he has had the biggest impact.

After releasing 'Bedroom', a self produced record of avant garde electronic music, at the age of 16 Daniel moved into writing music for the small screen. A year later, inbetween doing his homework, he wrote his first TV soundtrack - a documentary for Channel 4 in which media visionary Janet Street Porter argued that the internet was a pointless passing fad. Since then he has become one of the most in demand and prolific composers in Britain writing music for over 150 different productions amounting to more than 500 shows in total in the past decade alone.

Well known for his creative and incredibly versatile approach to writing no two scores ever sound the same.
