Hi there!

I'm a film & TV composer based in The Netherlands, with a BIG love for nature, Wildlife & Natural History films, interesting stories, traveling, hiking, and good vegan food.

My music has been serving as a score & underscore for numerous TV programmes, varying from BBC docu-series such as Gordon Buchanan's Cheetah Family & Me, Grizzly Bear Cubs & Me, to Earth's Great Rivers and Planet Earth UK, all the way to short films and popular TV shows such as Top Gear and First Dates. My work also found its way as advertising syncs for international brands like Land Rover and Opel.

I was previously nominated at i.a. the Soundtrack Cologne European Talent Award in 2012, and in 2020 I won 3th place at the Film Music Festival (FMF) Young Talent Award in Krakow, being judged by i.a. Richard Bellis, Yati Durant, Martin Phipps, Michael Todd.

The same year I won 2nd place at the GEMS ScoreLive competition, being judged by i.a. Gary Schyman, Pete Anthony, and Christopher Young.

I love the collaboration process and find myself comfortable working alongside other industry professionals, from creative producers, editors and directors, to audio engineers, musicians, and other composers.

Always up for a chat!

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.
