Composer Spotlight: Aurélie Webb
Aurélie Webb is a British composer based in London and New York. Specializing in scores for film and live performance, her eclectic, original, yet accessible work bears the influence of music as wide-ranging as American minimalism and Ralph Vaughan Williams, Radiohead and David Bowie. She has worked with filmmakers and artists from across the world in various genres, also branching into animation, documentaries, literature-inspired concert music, as well as experimental dance. She has composed for film genres as diverse as comedy, drama, mystery and horror and has a particular love of science fiction. Drawing on her classical background, Aurélie’s style has been variously characterised as having foundations of ‘formidable skill and imagination’, a ‘beautiful modern melodic sense’ and ‘lyric spontaneity’. Aurélie embraces an empathetic and collaborative approach to musical storytelling. She is currently completing an MMus in Scoring for Film and Multimedia at New York University where she has studied under Paul Chihara and Chris Hajian.
