Michael Price

After initially developing a career as a composer for contemporary dance, in 1996 Michael Price was invited by composer Michael Kamen to orchestrate and program electronica for the film Event Horizon [1997] going on to co-produce the music for other productions such as 'The Iron Giant' [1999], 'X-Men' [2000], 'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider' [2001] and HBO's epic World War II miniseries 'Band of Brothers [2001]

From then on Michael worked as a music editor, with films such as Peter Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy, Richard Curtis' 'Love Actually' [2003], 'Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason' [2004], 'Nanny McPhee' [2005] and Alfonso Cuaron's 'Children of Men' [2006].

As well as co-composing the score for BBC Sherlock with David Arnold, Michael's numerous composing credits include 'Wild Target' [2010], 'The First Men in the Moon' [2010], Horrid Henry: The Movie [2011] and 'A Fantastic Fear of Everything' [2012].

In 2012, he moved into producing, working on the dark romantic comedy drama 'Delicious' which stars Sherlock's Louise Brealey. He will, of course, also compose the film's score, and the film is due for release in 2013.
