Alexander Proudlock is a composer and orchestrator based in Newcastle, UK, and has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting and versatile composers and orchestrators.  

 

Blending orchestral timbres, electronic music with a jazz sensibility, Alexander’s music strikes a delicate balance between the organic, electronic and the avant-garde. He draws inspiration from historically important composers such as Ludwig Van Beethoven, Igor Stravinsky, John Cage and Aaron Copland.

 

Alexander is known primarily for his work in concert, film, and broadcast television. Notably in 2020, Alexander was asked to write the score for the film Round Here by UK arts charity Sunday for Sammy. The premiere was at the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena and was shown to an audience of 12,000. The film was later shown on BBC One with an audience of 1.2 million. He has received over 50 commissions for the concert hall, cinema, and theatre. Alexander has had his music broadcasted on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4 and BBC Three television. In Europe alone, he has worked with members from the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Singers, CHROMA Ensemble, Northern Chords and City of Birmingham Orchestra conductor Jonathan Bloxham..

He has work with companies such as BBC television, BBC radio and Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH). After years of orchestrating and writing for clients, he is working on a debut album with a message and intent of pushing the limitations in orchestral music to express his story and connect through the consideration of non-conventional writing merged with the infinite aural potential. Alexander’s music can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and all streaming platforms.

Alexander started his musical training at the age of 8 with a local cello teacher at his primary school in Gateshead. He then trained under Dr. David Horne at the Royal Northern College of Music before holding a master's in Composition and Orchestration from the Royal Academy of Music whilst studying with Christopher Austin. He also is a qualified teacher with a degree in music education.

PRESS & RECOMMEDATIONS

"The score for Homesick, was a character that didn't let the movie drag and carried the story very well. The mixture of instrumental music and electronic vocal percussive noises added to the overall depth and adds to the psychological unnerving that the film needed from its score."

Chris Buck Journalist, UK Film Review, April 2021

"Alexander Proudlock's musical score is sublime and sculpted masterfully. Perhaps it is only the beautiful score by Proudlock that can soothe the nerves, when the inescapable realisation hits as it does Liam; that life is never meant to play the same for all."

Short Indie Mag Team Journalist, Writer for The International Filmmusic Critics Assosiation, August 2020
