David Ridley

Bristol based composer for theatre, screen and the concert hall.

I’m a composer, sound designer and multi-instrumentalist.  I recently graduated with an MA in composition from Bristol University, where I won a full Faculty of Arts scholarship, and have since scored several pieces of theatre.  

I often perform my scores on my instruments the piano, violin/viola, voice and live electronics, and gladly play supporting characters.  My score for Bucket Club’s ‘Lorraine & Alan’ won an MTN award for innovation in Music for Theatre.
