Aurélie Webb is a British composer based in the UK and New York. Specialising in scores for film, TV, audio and live performance, her eclectic, original yet accessible work bears the influence of music as wide-ranging as American minimalism and Ralph Vaughan Williams, Radiohead and David Bowie. Aurélie embraces an empathetic and collaborative approach to musical storytelling and has composed for film genres as diverse as comedy, drama, mystery and horror and has a particular love of science fiction. Drawing on her classical background, Aurélie’s style has been variously characterised as having foundations of ‘formidable skill and imagination’, a ‘beautiful modern melodic sense’ and ‘lyric spontaneity'. She is currently working on two audio dramas and a short documentary.
Aurélie has worked with filmmakers and artists from across the world, branching into animation, documentaries and literature-inspired concert music as well as experimental dance. In August 2023 the Archewell Productions / Grain Media / Violet Films-produced docuseries Heart Of Invictus premiered on Netflix. Led by Emmy-nominated composer Patrick Jonsson, the series features additional music by Aurélie. In 2022 she completed work on her original score for the hit podcast What Happened In Skinner which has been nominated for the Best Indie Podcast award at The Ambies, the awards for excellence in audio. In March 2023 Aurélie was proud to have had her score for the short film Mars Falling nominated for Best Original Score at the 2023 Boston Sci Fi Film Festival. In July 2022, the documentary Here To Stay, scored by Aurélie, won a Student Academy Award in the documentary category and was later awarded the silver medal in the awards ceremony at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Following its Manhattan premiere in March 2019, Consonance, a collaboration with choreographer Chaery Moon with original score by Aurélie, was selected to be performed at the Dumbo Dance Festival, Brooklyn and at the Your Move Modern Dance Festival, New Jersey. The animated film Today We Are, scored by Aurélie, received Honourable Mention at the Fusion Film Festival and was a finalist at the New Visions and Voices Festival, ASIFA Festival and the Dublin International Film Festival. In September 2019 she was featured in the first composer spotlight feature in the Women Composers’ Forum (now Europe’s Alliance for Women Film Composers) newsletter. She is honoured to have been selected for the 2020 ASCAP Columbia University Film Scoring Workshop and the BMI Composing for the Screen Workshop. Upcoming releases in 2024 include her orchestral piece Nova, recorded with the Trackdown Studios orchestra in Sydney, and her official original score for What Happened In Skinner.
