Alex Paton is a young composer and musician, providing bespoke music for film, television, dance and theatre.
With a background in music from a young age and performing on a range of instruments in orchestras, brass bands, rock & metal bands and folk ensembles, Alex has developed a wide compositional palette that draws from a variety of genres and styles. This is evident in his bespoke compositions which encompass genres of many styles. Initially attracted to film scores at the age of seven after hearing John Williams' 'Imperial March' (or commonly know as Darth Vader's theme in Star Wars), Alex pursued composition by studying music and music technology at degree level whilst working for a number of production companies and building relationships with enthusiastic directors, producers, writers and choreographers.
Over recent years, completed bespoke compositions have been commissioned for full length films, short films, documentaries, theatre work, dance and corporate advertising. He continues to look for new and exciting media projects to collaborate in.
Alex also works as an arranger/producer, this can be anything from string and brass arrangements for band or artist EPK's and albums, to complete album production. He also performs with a number of original bands on guitar/trumpet/irish whistles, deps for other ensembles as well as performing and accompanying professional dance classes and specific choreographies.
