Chris specialises in producing thematically driven orchestral scores in a variety of styles and genres ranging from powerful action driven scores to romantic sweeping music, from large ninety piece full orchestral scores to small intimate pieces for string quartet. Chris has worked with several world renowned orchestras including the Bulgarian Philharmonic and the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra to provide scores for video games, animated movies and cartoons which have been broadcast on UK television including the Welsh Bafta nominated animation ‘Dave: in One Good Turn’ by Griffilms and a children’s cartoon ‘Nwca’ broadcast on S4C.
Chris has had a passion for composing music all his life. From the tender age of six he drove his parents crazy by head banging in the back of the family car in time to the music he was humming to himself. Later he learned to play the piano and studied music theory and at the age of ten he composed his first piece with help of his music teacher. Later on he graduated from Bangor University with an honours degree in Computer Systems Engineering and went on to work for several companies developing software before setting up the music company ‘Hesketh Media Ltd’.
