James Seymour Brett has come through in the last few years as a versatile, international talent scoring projects in all genres and media.
His style ranges from the large, upscale orchestral grandeur of “Batman Live”, “Walking With Dinosaurs” & “Planet 51″, to smaller, more intimate works such as “L’Histoire De Nos Petites Morts”, “Outpost”, and “The Life And Death Of Peter Sellers”. In recent years James has enjoyed success on Network TV with 2 seasons of the cult drama “HEX” for Sky 1 and “Crusoe” for NBC. Also in his early career he was fortunate to have worked with the late Michael Kamen on projects such as “Band Of Brothers” and “From The Earth To The Moon”.
More recently James has collaborated with Roland Emmerich on major film work – “2012″, “10,000 BC” and with Stephen Frears on this year’s “Lay The Favourite”, the latter of which demanded a quirky, Americana-style score covering rock, blues & folk genres.
This year marks a busy period as James will be composing the score for Pixar’s latest blockbuster “Planes”, scoring an animated musical feature film called “Saving Santa” and overseeing the release of his specially commissioned “London Olympics 2012 Album”. He also masterminded and conducted the “Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations” with the BBC, working alongside artists such as Elton John, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox and Stevie Wonder.
