Theo Vidgen is a composer specialising in television, film and theatre.

His background in musical arrangement for the BBC and The Sydney Scoring Orchestra, as well as his work as assistant to Academy Award winning composer Howard Shore on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, has given him the skills to work across a range of media. His television credits include three collaborations with the Bafta winning director Sandy Johnson; Hold The Sunset starring John Cleese and Alison Steadman (BBC1); Jonathan Creek (BBC1); The Young Hyacinth (BBC1) as well as scoring The Job Interview (Series 1 & 2, Channel 4); The Choir & The Naked Choir with Gareth Malone (BBC2); The Big Painting Challenge (Series 1, 2 & 3, BBC1) and Tricks of the Restaurant Trade (Series 1, 2 & 3 Channel 4).

His collaborations with the music production team Workhouse include writing music for The Apprentice (BBC1); Bear Grylls Escape From Hell (Sky Discovery); Time Crashers and Four Rooms (Channel 4).

Theo’s work in theatre includes writing songs and underscore for All’s Well That Ends Well at The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, The Globe; An Octoroon by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins at The Orange Tree Theatre (currently transferring to the National Theatre); Brixton Rock, an adaptation of Alex Wheatle’s novel for The Big House and the UK premier of Superior Donuts by Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts at the Southwark Playhouse.

Highlights from his commercial work include scoring O2 and England Rugby’s ‘Make Them Giants’ (recorded at Abbey Road with a 65 piece orchestra); working with Aardman Animations on campaigns for Australian brand Myer; creating an orchestral arrangement of Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You for Marks & Spencer’s Christmas campaign and Thomson’s launch of the Dreamliner Aircraft (recorded at Air’s Lyndhurst Hall). Other commercial work includes soundtracks for Guinness, First Utility, Flora, McCain, Bodyform, O2 & NSPCC, The Defense and Rehabilitation Clinic, Biedronka and The Australian Transport Accident Commission.
