Paul Leonard-Morgan is an EMMY nominated, BAFTA-winning and Ivor Novello nominated composer, who has become one of the most sought-after TV & film composers in the US and UK. Studying at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, he developed a reputation as a producer and arranger for bands such as Belle and Sebastian, Snow Patrol, Mogwai and Texas. His first film score, Pineapple, won him a BAFTA award and his first television drama, Fallen, earned him both BAFTA and Ivor Novello nominations. His work has led him on to score for films such as Limitless (which was nominated for a World Soundtrack Discovery Award), DREDD, and Walking With Dinosaurs 3D. Recently, Paul has scored both series of Amazon Prime’s The Grand Tour, award-winning director Errol Morris’ Wormwood, and series 3 of Netflix’s Designated Survivor.
In an unprecedented first, Philip Glass has collaborated with Paul to create the soundtrack to accompany Amazon Prime’s next big series ‘Tales from the Loop’. Based on the art book ‘Tales from the Loop’ by Stålenhag, the show imagines an alternate version of our world. Starring Academy Award nominee Jonathan Pryce, Golden Globe Nominee Rebecca Hall and Paul Schneider, Stålenhag’s paintings are set in a universe where a particle accelerator has been built underground – named “The Loop” – to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe, which causes anomalies of all sorts to occur around the town.
