John Altman

"To say John is the master is an understatement, he brings any project alive with the depth and colour of carefully put together instrumentation whether in a jazz band or full orchestra, which only enhances the pictures it accompanies." 

- Lucy Westmore, Producer, DDB London

Known throughout the industry as one of the most accomplished and talented composers and arrangers, John has scored for numerous films and dramas and over 4000 TV commercials. He has worked with talent including; Amy Winehouse, Eric Clapton, George Michael, Tina Turner, Bob Dylan, Bjork, Van Morrison and Monty Python.

With an Emmy, a Doctorate in music and a Monaco Lifetime achievement film award to his name, John crosses genre boundaries, creating orchestral, big band, jazz, and opera scores.

John served as the historical music advisor for the feature film Titanic and arranged and produced all the period music played by the on-board orchestra seen in the film. He also orchestrated the iconic song, 'I Dreamed a Dream' for Freeview's 'biggest-ever' advertising campaign, 'Set Yourself Free'.
