GABRIEL WARE

Modern hybrid orchestral composer for soundscapes, film and drama

Having began his composition journey in 2015 without a formal music education, Gabriel quickly developed his style and advanced his production techniques, relying entirely on his pure passion for film and television music. Since then, Gabriel has worked on many major soundscape and media projects, lending his advanced understanding of emotion,  texture, and experimental style, to much acclaim.

REVIEWS

  • The Crossing (2015): '… this is a most giving and lushly colourful account, amid it’s considerable palette – the symphonic pirouettes, the flotillas of bucolic arpeggios and its overall neo classical grandeur, we hear elements of Herrmann, Debussy, a young Nyman, Reich, Oldfield and Gamley flickering in its rich and bountiful sonic harvesting…’  Mark Losing 

  • Newgate Jail (2015): 'Gabriel was given the game soundtrack brief and he returned a couple of hours later with 2 tracks which showed his depth of understanding that we needed an intelligent fusion of medieval electronica but also working in the core SFX which were part of the story. Bursting with talent' Natasha Seery – Founder, City Run London

  • I am an Insect (2017): ‘I Am An Insect 3D soundscape by Gabriel Ware was definitely one of the highlights of Forest of Imagination 2017. Adults and children alike were captivated by the sweeping, filmic soundscape that transformed a hidden landscape dell into a truly memorable immersive experience. “It was like walking through a film” was a typical response.’ Andrew Grant - Grant Associates, founder of Forest Of Imagination

  • Liquid Histories (2018): ‘Gabriel Ware’s sonic contribution to Liquid Histories was a central element in creating a successful immersive environment; he brilliantly managed to capture both the poetic and everyday dimensions of the river through his aural landscape.’ Professor Jeremy Till, Head of Central Saint Martins

  • The Beyond (2018): Mandy Brooker: ‘So glad that me and my husband were able to experience this and we both left a plaque for loved ones. Incredibly moving, we both cried our eyes out.'
