Sam Watson
Name: Sam Watson

I’m a 23 year old composer working in the film and television industry in Auckland. I have been involved in many musical groups throughout my life so far, ranging from various choirs, barbershop choruses and quartets, brass bands and a jazz band.

I am currently working for South Pacific Pictures at the television show “Shortland Street”, where my job entails composing non-diagetic background scores to help develop storylines and characters within the show. I also source diagetic background tracks from production music libraries for various “in world” situations, such as the cafe, the bar or domestic sets.

I learnt to compose at Tawa College on the notation software Sibelius, and have developed this skill throughout the years since. I currently use the DAW Pro Tools for my work at Shortland Street, and Ableton Live for other smaller projects in my studio at home.
