Dr Trevor Jones has composed music for over 90 film and television projects, including the Golden Globe nominee The Last Of The Mohicans (1982), the major blockbuster Notting Hill (1999) and Jim Henson's cult classics, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.
Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Trevor left the continent at the age of 17 after receiving a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music. Throughout his time at University he composed music for 23 student films, including the Oscar winning, The Dollar Bottom (1981). Shortly after he received his first major work, Excalibur (1981).
Throughout his impressive career he has recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra, The London Philharmonic Orchestra, The Academy of St Martin in the Fields, The Medici String Quartet amongst many others, and has worked with some of the finest actors and film-makers in the industry.
In recent years, Trevor has been working to promote diversity and new talent within the creative industry, including working with Music Exchange to empower up-and-coming musicians in South Africa.
His most recent work is a soundtrack composed for Caspar Seale-Jones' dark fantasy horror, To Tokyo (2018); album now available on all major streaming platforms.
Influenced by the sounds of Japan, Trevor Jones's latest release, To Tokyo, is arguably one of his most distinctive scores to date. Through utilising child-like chants Trevor creates an atmosphere of dreamy exploration; masterfully blurring the lines between reality and the protagonist's dark imagination.
"Haunting music from Trevor Jones sounds like something Kenji Kawai might compose for one of Mamoru Oshii’s films." Jason Maher, VCinema.
"To Tokyo scores high on dreamy-bordering-on-nightmarish atmosphere." Mike McCahill, The Guardian.
