His entry onto the UK film scene came in 2007 after graduating with commendation as the Olswang scholar from the UK National Film and Television School with a Masters in Composition for Film and Television. Since graduation, his reputation has been strengthened by the success of many of the films he has composed scores for. Films such as La Planète Encore, a film by French legend Moebius; Irish feature One Hundred Mornings, winner of an Irish Film and Television Award and a New York Times critics’ pick; À Mi-chemin featuring actor Laurent Lucas; and short ﬁlm Les Conquérants, in competition at Sundance 2012 and shortlisted for a 2013 CÉSAR best animation award. Recently Chris composed the score for his 4th feature ﬁlm Nancy, Please, a black comedy that explores obsession, self-righteousness, and the perverse allure of victimhood in New Haven, Connecticut. As a string arranger, Chris has worked with a broad range of artists.
In 2009 Chris scored and conducted string arrangements for Billy Ocean’s album Because I Love You, recorded in London’s Air Studios. Chris’s background as a touring musician writing and performing his own material as well as sharing stages with the likes of Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Paul McCartney and Joe Williams, mixed with his formal classical training, has meant exposure to influences that have been fused in his music to create a fresh and unique new voice in film music. Chris is represented by Berlin Associates and works from his central London studio. www.shadyzane.com www.chriswhite.info www.facebook.com/chriswhitemusic www.twitter.com/chriswhite_HQ Read more on Last.fm.
