Aurélie Webb is a British composer based in the UK and New York. Specialising in scores for film 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 several short film projects and a new contemporary dance collaboration set to premiere in October 2021.
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. 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. Her new track Life can be heard on Isolation Textures, the debut album by Sister X. Upcoming releases in 2021 include her orchestral piece Nova, recorded with the Trackdown Studios orchestra in Sydney, and Frenzy, a hybrid piece recorded with the Sirius Quartet as part of the BMI Composing for the Screen Workshop.
