Steven Price is an Academy Award winning ﬁlm composer whose unique, story-driven approach to the craft of ﬁlm scoring has seen him work on some of the most innovative productions of recent years. From Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity to Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, Steven’s individualistic scores seek to enhance the ideas and images of great ﬁlmmakers in truly bespoke ways.
Price’s diverse music reﬂects the wide range of movie and television projects he has been involved with. Beginning his career in the late 1990s, Price contributed to productions such as The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Batman Begins, before making his scoring debut in 2011 with Joe Cornish’s inner-city horror comedy, Attack the Block. Recent years have seen him compose distinctive scores for Claire McCarthy’s reimagining of Hamlet, Ophelia, David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, the Academy Award nominated Glen Keane Animation Over the Moon, and Gavin Rothery’s Archive.
From his incorporation of original WW2 tanks in the percussion of the Brad Pitt starring Fury to the wind instrument driven score created for Tom Harper’s The Astronaut’s, the music created for each production seeks to give each story its unique voice, the result of an experimental and collaborative process.
Recent years have seen Price focus increasingly on environmental concerns, with his work alongside Sir David Attenborough on The Hunt, (for which Price won a Bafta), and the Netﬂix Original Our Planet, (nominated for two score Emmys), set to continue in 2022 with a new live arena spectacular, Our Planet Live in Concert, the premiere for which will be held at London’s O2 Arena. In 2020 Price was invited by Attenborough to compose the score for his powerful personal witness statement, David Attenborough– A Life On our Planet, (Netﬂix) and their partnership continued in 2021 with Earshot, an international project seeking to award innovation in ﬁnding solutions to some of the world’s greatest environmental problems, launched by the Duke of Cambridge, for which Price composed the music.
Recent projects include the Netﬂix Original Sweet Girl, and in the continuation of a collaboration that began with Scott Pilgrim vs The World in 2010, Edgar Wright’s Last Night in SOHO (Focus).
Steven’s music has received many accolades and has been performed at iconic venues around the world including The Royal Albert Hall and The Hollywood Bowl.
