Rob Lord – Composer Profile

ROB LORD BW Headshot May 2015

Rob Lord is fast becoming one of the UK’s most experienced and sought after composers and commissioned songwriter-lyricists working in film, television, advertising and online drama in both the UK and US. His work, known for its combination of unusual and experimental instrumentation and sound with strong melodic hooks, has featured most recently in his scores for BAFTA and RTS award nominated feature documentary The Girl Who Talked To Dolphins for the BBC and for multi award winning six part US Sci-Fi drama RCVR directed by David van Eyssen. Rob recently finished scoring a new UK horror feature film, Writer’s Retreat, for Moli Films and is currently scoring Little People, a 52 part US animation series, for Hit Entertainment.

In a previous life Rob toured and recorded for a number of high profile groups playing keyboards and guitar for Dodgy, The Primitives, Voice Of The Beehive, The Conells and Paul Oakenfold’s Grace for whom Rob wrote the UK hit You’re Not Mine. Rob also had his own bands Vagabond Joy and Starpower signed to EMI and Rough Trade respectively. He also spent five years as audio director of UK games company Perfect Entertainment and scored a series of number one titles for them as well as games for Disney, Eidos, Sega, Codemasters, Microsoft and numerous other publishers.

Rob has produced remixes for Catatonia, Shriekback, The French and Ant. He has released his own Krautrock influenced music under the name Ausgang as well as having appeared on two Mute Records produced collections of Electronica and under the name Machines featured on the album The Trip compiled by Snow Patrol.
