Dominic Shovelton
Composer.Musician.Sound Designer.

I compose music with additional sound design fusing cutting-edge electronic production with my classical training.  Driven by visuals, I create cinematic hybrid compositions.  My work is being commissioned across projects in film, TV, games, immersive experiential, digital media and live performance.

 

After a few years composing for theatre I joined the team at HUM working on projects within advertising and commercial film.  I continued developing  live event & immersive installation including ZOOMORPHIC at the Victoria & Albert Museum, soundtrack scores for films & rooms at the United States Olympic & Paralympic museum, Colorado Springs and MAIL RAIL - The Postal Museum, London. In 2021 I was commissioned to compose music and sound design for THE BLUE PARADOX an immersive pop-up experience on the ocean plastic crisis. 22,837 visitors attended during a 13 day run.

 

Continuing my work for visual media I composed the MOSMA award winning game score for The Bunker TIGA & BAFTA nominated FMV game in 2017.

 

For several years I have worked closely with Rolls Royce on original music to launch of their new cars, including 2019’s Ghost.  This music was a finalist in the 2020 Music & Sound Awards (MASA).  In 2022 Rolls Royce announced its first electric car, SPECTRE.  My role was music supervisor, composer and producer working closely with the London Contemporary Orchestra.  The score was recorded at EMPIRE Studios and then performed live at Goodwood with electronic elements mixed in surround.

 

During the pandemic some live events moved to on-line experiences.  I composed music that included event identities, stings, underscores and sound design for Jaguar Land Rover, Yahoo and Rolls Royce. In addition to the release of my album SOLAR in late 2019 I used the lockdowns to create and remix an album of original compositions ENCHANTED CINEMATIC VISIONS released through FABER X and BMG.

 

I completed the score for the feature film BALABAN, written and directed by Aysulu Onaran, in 2021.  I am releasing the soundtrack later this year.
