www.adamjameswakeling.co.uk

I am a professional composer and musician with experience in a number of different musical styles. I have composed and produced a number of relaxation CDs which are widely available online and have produced a soundtrack to an amateur dramatic production (king Arthur) with an emphasis on symphonic epic scores. I also have a number of tunes in several music libraries around the world. I am currently scoring and writing the songs to a theatre production of The Three Musketeers. I am looking for my next project as I would like to gain valuable experience in composing for theatre and film & TV. I am also looking at getting into acting, so have been doing work as an extra.

I am a Musician & composer with 20 years experience, and can compose all types of music for film & tv, games, theatre, relaxation, etc. Having been in several bands I now am a solo recording artist with a number of instrumental rock albums that I have produced.

I have composed and produced a number of relaxation CDs which are widely available online.

I have done a soundtrack to an amateur dramatic production (king Arthur) with an emphasis on symphonic epic scores.
I also have music available online in all the major stores.

I am writing and producing the all songs and the swashbuckiling score for a theatre version of The Three Musketeers which will be going on tour in the UK next year.

I am also currently writing a rock musical of a famous piece of English literature which will make for a great stage show or a 'Jeff Waynes Musical Version of the War of the Worlds' style album. I am currently looking for financial backing to produce this on a large budget.

I also have a number of tunes in several music libraries around the world.

I composed the music to one of the scenes to an audio drama entitled 'Dark Jewel'.

I have a passion for history and enjoy composing music to accompany certain epochs, from Ancient Rome to WW1, Ancient Greece to Medieval Europe, etc.

I composed the dance/rock soundtrack to the short film 'Ecdysiast'.
