Will Hyde is a British composer from Bath. Will started his musical journey as a cellist performing around the country before turning his attention to composing.
Will gained invaluable experience in the film industry when he was given the chance to work for academy award winner Hans Zimmer and Grammy award winner Lorne Balfe on Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. Will then went on to compose for a variety of wildlife series for the BBC’s Natural History Unit and formed Hyde Music.
Hyde Music also works with big brands such as Nike, Nokia and Bwin composing music for their advertising campaigns utilising Hyde Music’s talented network of musicians and composers most often recording at Real World Studios.
Working with Will is always rewarding - the tracks he composes are almost always the most musical of any pitch. This is down to his ability to interpret the brief and the quality of musicians at his disposal. He is able to deliver tracks both bang on brief and suggest more alternative, leftfield ideas too - in other words he contributes in a genuinely creative and collaborative way to the project.
He is able to accommodate a changing brief - so giving him any range of styles to compose to is never an issue - a specialist in all styles! Turn around is always fast and buy-outs negotiable - music to any producers ears!
Having now worked with Will on two BBC series I would highly recommend his work. It’s been a pleasurable and creative experience throughout. Will has delivered extremely high quality, contemporary and intricate scores, that have depth and richness.
His characterisation is superb and the tone always spot on. He has the ability to tackle completely different styles but manages to draw the music together to make each series feel like a continuous sound track. His creativity is exceptional, with brilliant attention to details.
It was so satisfying to work with a composer that closely followed your remit and created a cohesive, considered score that drew the entire tone of the series together. Will was always been quick and efficient at responding to notes, never precious about his work, so it always felt very collaborative.
Will has written a number of tracks for different projects I have produced. He is an extraordinarily creative composer and accomplished musician and his work is invariably beautiful and atmospheric. He has a natural intuitive sense of what a music track needs to do to be effective. He is very quick to respond to a brief, always collaborative and always working hard to make the work as good as it possibly can be. I look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.
