Nick Watson Composer for Media

Before, during and after - Composition and production

Edinburgh based film and television composer Nick Watson has had compositions broadcast to an unsuspecting public on US and UK TV networks such as MTV, Channel 4 and E4. Young & Wild, a recent film centred around three best friends and their final weekend before they go their separate ways for college, was nominated for Best Original Music at Cinema Festival Lünen.

Nick Watson is a graduate of the Composition For Screen Masters programme from the highly regarded University of Edinburgh Reid School of Music, recently ranked the highest in the UK for Music in The Guardian.

With a cutting-edge studio set up, Nick crafts his distinctive sound with a blend of live instruments, electronic soundscapes, sound design elements and custom sampling.

His work can be heard in several documentaries, dramas, and short films. One such short; My Brother Went For Sweets, was awarded the FilmG Theme Prize at the FilmG awards in Glasgow. Other shorts have shown at Toronto and Tribeca film festivals.
