Music for film

Composition, sound design & foley

As a film music producer, my approach is a harmonious fusion of artistic vision, technical precision, and a deep understanding of storytelling through sound. It's not just about creating music; it's about enhancing narratives, evoking emotions, and bringing cinematic worlds to life through the power of sound.

I draw inspiration from the vast spectrum of genres and styles, tailoring my compositions to seamlessly integrate with the visual language of each film. Whether it's a sweeping orchestral score for a period drama, ambient textures for a suspenseful thriller, or electronic beats for a modern urban tale, every project is a unique sonic journey.

Collaboration is at the heart of my production philosophy. Working closely with directors, editors, and other creatives, I aim to translate their cinematic vision into a musical language that complements and elevates the storytelling. Each film is a canvas, and the soundtrack is the brushstroke that enhances the audience's emotional connection with the narrative.

This space serves as a window into the world of film music production, offering a glimpse into the intricacies of crafting soundscapes for the silver screen. Join me on this cinematic expedition as we explore the nuances of scoring, from composing memorable themes to synchronizing music with visual cues, enhancing the overall impact of the storytelling experience.

So, if you're ready to delve into the intersection of sound and cinema, hit play, and let's embark on this sonic journey together. From heart-pounding suspense to tear-jerking melodies, the magic of film production awaits.

I'm Angus Malcolm, a music producer based in Bristol, UK, but work with artists across the UK and internationally.

Excerpt from the 2017 short film ‘Everything we Wanted’

This scene was given to me without any audio to it at all. I recorded my partner running on the spot with various items of clothing and different accessories, not to mention the out-of-breath puffing, till I had enough of a soundbed that matched the image. I then got them in time with the image and created the space between the characters. Then added the atmos and city noises.
