Dominik Scherrer

Dominik Scherrer – Composer Profile

dominik_scherrer_port

An extremely fresh, innovative and resourceful composer, Dominik has emerged as one of the most talented score composers of his generation.

His award-winning music can be heard on some of the finest television dramas made in recent years, earning him an Ivor Novello Award and RTS Award Nomination for Ripper Street, a 2015 Primetime Emmy Nomination for The Missing, and two further Ivor Novello Nominations, one for Amazon’s The Collection and the other for Marple, where Dominik’s iconic theme runs across all six series. Other landmark dramas include Inspector Calls and Monroe (series 1 & 2).

Equally accomplished in film scoring, Dominik’s credits include Alina Marazzi’s Tutto Parla Di Te (All About You), Scenes of a Sexual Nature starring Ewan McGregor and Hugh Bonneville The Truth, The Nine Lives of Tomas Katz (Best Music Award at Spain’s Estapona Film Festival), Alice Through The Looking Glass starring Kate Beckinsale, and Appetite starring Ute Lemper, for whom he also wrote the title song, which reached No. 2 on the UK classical charts.

Dominik has his own avant-garde disco & video art duo, and composes performance music for the theatre. He also produces sound design and composition for fine art installations, most notably for artist Suki Chan. As composer/director, he has a new film-opera in development. It follows his kinetic opera for screen ‘Hell For Leather’, which premiered at Sundance and went on to win him 10 awards.

Dominik is a British-Swiss composer who works from his studio in Spitalfields, London.
