Description

About Adrian Sutton

Adrian's work as a composer includes a diverse range of projects.

The best-known are his scores for the National Theatre's hits War Horse, Angels in America, Coram Boy and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, which have gained him Olivier and/or Tony nominations and in the case of the latter, a joint Olivier Award for Sound Design in 2013.

Classically-trained at London University's Goldsmiths College, his work blends a symphonic narrative and harmonic richness with contemporary studio technology, sound design and software design.

Away from theatre and the studio, his output includes orchestral and chamber works, among them War Horse – The Story in Concert (for orchestra, chorus and narrators) the symphonic poem War Horse Suite, A Fist Full of Fives performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra on Radio 3, a children's concert opera The Griffin and the Grail, a Sinfonietta for small orchestra, and a Double Piano Sonata.

Many years of TV and film work include music and sound design for Chris Morris' Jam, Blue Jam and the BAFTA-winning short film My Wrongs.
