ABOUT

Stephen Hicks is a composer of music for TV, film, trailers and games. Having decided in mid 2015 to try to fulfil an early dream to write for TV and film, Steve's music has now been placed on TV by spear-music.com and been featured on the soundtrack Air Brawl from Landfall Games. Recently, Steve  has  scored the trailer for the independent Star Wars film Odyssey and several short films including ‘Bringing Home Peter’ and 'Eve' for Little Grand Road which was well received at the  Chinese American Film Festival. He was commissioned by Visualise to write immersive music for a VR experience.

Steve gained his MMus and PhD having studied with Rob Keeley, John Deathridge and Arnold Whittall at King’s College, London. His classical music has been played by Lontano, and at the Aldeburgh Festival and St John’s, Smith Square, London. Steve's arrangements have been played on BBC radio, by the EUYO at the Shanghai Expo 2010 and recently on the brass ensemble  Septura's successful first album 'Music for Brass Septet'. Steve’s brass music is published by Resonata Music.

Previously, Steve completed a post-graduate diploma as a trumpet player at the Royal College of Music, London following which he freelanced, mainly in London, playing with Aurora Orchestra at the BBC Proms and  the Britten-Pears Orchestra. And, a long time ago in a University not so far, far away (Imperial College), Steve received a first class honours degree in Theoretical Physics.
