Writing music for dance, getting hired through Instagram, and the importance of community with Aurélie Webb


In this episode Richard talks to Aurélie Webb, a composer for film, TV, theatre and dance.

Aurélie Webb is a British composer based in the UK and New York. Specialising 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.

Drawing on her classical background, Aurélie’s style has been variously characterised as having foundations of ‘formidable skill and imagination’, a ‘beautifulmodern melodic sense’ and ‘lyric spontaneity'. She is currently working on several short film projects and a mystery podcast series due for release in 2021.
