Brighton-based composer Peter Davison has enjoyed success composing music for international advertising campaigns and with multiple music placements through recognised international music libraries and is a music consultant with Pebble Beach Screen Partners.
Early 2017 has been busy for Peter, arranging, orchestrating and conducting the album Summer with Monika with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic ensemble 10/10 with Roger McGough and Andy Roberts. He’s also been putting the finishing touches on the huge PS4 release Horizon Zero Dawn where he orchestrated, conducted and copy edited. Expectations are high for this game.
Recently he has composed bespoke music for cricket documentary 21 Reasons and has been working with feature documentary maker Mike Book on a production about the infamous Australian band The Church.
His collaboration with Claire Martin and the Montpellier Cello Quartet saw his arrangements performed at Kings Place, the Albert Hall and Union Chapel.
Peter penned a remarkable arrangement of David Bowie’s Man Who Sold The World for Claire’s multi-collaborative album Time & Place released in 2013 which is regarded as the highlight of the album.
Peter studied Music at Leeds University and went on to train as a conductor with Colin Metters (RAM) and Eno Koco. He studied composition and orchestration with the renowned, orchestral and brass band composer Philip Wilby.
In addition to some exciting film project that remain ‘under wraps’ this year Peter will be working with the Bahamas National Symphony Orchestra, and conducting the newly formed Regent’s Orchestra.
A truly versatile writer, Peter can produce an epic full-on orchestral work, chamber and solo music and is a master of fusion – combining traditional instrumental writing with synth, and electronic techniques.
