“The distinctive music of BAFTA winning composer Ben Bartlett can be heard on many award-winning TV drama and Film productions.

2021 will see the 10th anniversary of ITV’s flagship female detective series Vera for which Ben has proudly delivered all the music. Alongside Vera, Ben continues to compose contemporary scores for noir thriller and psychological drama. His scores for Sky One’s Lucky Man, ITV’s The Loch and Sky Atlantic’s The Tunnel saw Ben explore a huge range of musical approaches from solo violin, chamber voice and live aleatronic string orchestra, through to unique synth programming and solo piano.

Ben’s approach to delivering a score is to collaborate with filmmakers to create, develop and hone a palette that captures the essence of the story and its characters.

When required, Ben’s scores have offered a reflection of period, spanning the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s of He Kills Coppers, a similar epic range in his score for The Runaway, and the vast biographical journey in the feature documentary Kissinger.

Ivor Novello nominated for the music for Fiona’s Story (Gina McGee, Jeremy Northam), Ben utilised the exquisite playing of solo violinist Adonis Alvanis, accompanied by some of the UK’s finest string players.

Ben’s sound is distinctive and its range is broad and he is equally at home with light drama and comedy, scoring Fairy Tales, Absolute Power (Stephen Fry), Secret World of Michael Fry (Ewen Bremner) and Mutual Friends (Marc Warren) for which he was nominated an RTS Award.”
