Aled Roberts

Aled Roberts has created a wide variety of work for independent filmmakers, student films and commercial spots. A multi-instrumentalist and multi-genre-ist, Aled is musically flexible and able to adapt his profound sense of tone, melody and harmony to any visual and emotional cue. In 2011, Aled's compositions were featured at The Flea Theatre’s Music With A View Festival, where he was celebrated as “a precocious young composer" by TimeOut New York. Aled was chosen to receive the NYU Steinhardt Certificate of Outstanding Musicianship in the Composition Program by Dr. Robert Rowe and Julia Wolfe and, in May 2013, he graduated with a Bachelor of Music cum laude. He has developed a close relationship with filmmaker Patrick Biesemans and created the music for the director’s first selfreleased short Charles Bukowski’s Nirvana, which launched into Vimeo’s Staff Pick List with over 50k views in the first month. With his home studio, unhealthy collection of instruments, samples and plugins, and a wide range of musical resources stemming from the relationships he has created in New York, Aled is in the perfect place to pursue a dynamic range of compositional projects, all well-informed by his ear for melody and form.
