Robert Hicks has over 15 years of experience as a media composer. Using collaborative and experimental processes he enjoys creating scores for TV and film projects—his music can regularly be heard on the BBC, National Geographic, Channel 4, ITV and MTV—as well as corporate clients such as Nike.
Every story is unique; Rob’s mission is to bring a story-driven approach to the craft of media scoring. By blending traditional orchestral instruments with the more contemporary sounds produced by guitars, analogue synths and outboard gear, he creates unique sonic textures which work in harmony with the visuals of great filmmakers to underpin and enhance each narrative.
Inspired by the styles of Steven Price, Ólafur Arnalds and Michael Kruk, Rob has a geeky passion for exploring the power of musical layers to augment the emotive impact of the visuals.
Rob works from Bristol (UK), where he indulges his three great loves of guitars, studio gear and roast potatoes, as well as co-hosting an online forum for Apple’s Logic Pro software.
