Martin Gratton

Composer for TV, Film & Games


I am a Liverpool-based composer for media, whose work encompasses a diverse range of genres from contemporary classical to atmospheric soundscapes. My music is regularly heard worldwide on BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, Disney Channel, ESPN, Fox Network, REELZ and in TV and radio commercials. My musical education began as a Chorister at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, where I studied piano and music theory from the age of 7, going on to tour Spain and Japan, performing in the première of Paul McCartney’s first classical work ‘The Liverpool Oratorio’ in 1991.

I also play guitar, mandolin and violin, and in recent years, I have composed, arranged and performed original music for theatre productions in the North West and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, as well as composing the score and sound design for several short films. I have recently completed an MA in Professional Media Composition at Thinkspace Education (University of Chichester), and my production music is published by leading labels such as Ninja Tune, Gothic Storm's Toolworks and Cute Music.
