ABOUT

Theo Vidgen is a composer specialising in television, film and commercials. His background in musical arrangement for the BBC, as well as his work as assistant to Academy Award winning composer Howard Shore on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, has given him the skills to work across a range of media.

He has co-composed 52 episodes of the British Animation Award nominated series 101 Dalmatian Street, which was broadcast worldwide on the Disney Channel and Disney+, and scored the documentary series ‘Ross Kemp: Living With’ (ITV). Other television credits include three collaborations with the BAFTA winning director Sandy Johnson; ‘Hold The Sunset’ starring John Cleese and Alison Steadman (BBC1); ‘Jonathan Creek’ (BBC1) and ‘The Young Hyacinth’ (BBC1), as well as scoring ‘The Job Interview’ (Series 1 & 2, Channel 4); ‘The Choir & The Naked Choir with Gareth Malone’ (BBC2); ‘The Big Painting Challenge’ (Series 1, 2 & 3, BBC1) and ‘Tricks of the Restaurant Trade’ (Series 1, 2 & 3 Channel 4).

His collaborations with the music production team Workhouse include writing music for ‘The Apprentice ‘(BBC1); ‘Bear Grylls Escape From Hell’ (Sky Discovery); ‘Time Crashers’ and ‘Four Rooms’ (Channel 4).

Theo’s work in theatre includes writing songs and underscore for ‘All’s Well That Ends Well’ at The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, The Globe; ‘An Octoroon’ by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins at the National Theatre; Brixton Rock, an adaptation of Alex Wheatle’s novel for ‘The Big House’’ and the UK premier of ‘Superior Donuts’ by Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts at the Southwark Playhouse.

Highlights from his commercial work include scoring O2 and England Rugby’s ‘Make Them Giants’ (recorded at Abbey Road with a 65 piece orchestra); working with Aardman Animations on three campaigns for Australian brand Myer; creating an orchestral arrangement of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ for Marks & Spencer’s Christmas campaign and Thomson’s launch of the Dreamliner Aircraft (recorded at Air’s Lyndhurst Hall). Other commercial work includes soundtracks for Skoda’s ‘Enyaq iV’, Amazon, Compare The Market, Waitrose, First Utility, Flora, McCain, Bodyform, O2 & NSPCC, The Defence and Rehabilitation Clinic, Biedronka and The Australian Transport Accident Commission.

His debut EP ‘October’ was released in 2021.
