About Chris Whiter

Composer | Chris Whiter Music | UK

Chris Whiter is a media composer with a hugely diverse portfolio. His layering of instrumental textures and rhythmic patterns have become a trademark of his compositions, and his portfolio includes international projects with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and Academy Award Winner A R Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours). He has arranged for the multiple Grammy winning Metropole Orchestra, Dee Dee Bridgewater (2017 NEA Jazz Master) and the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Chris has also orchestrated for the top films and composers in the Indian film industry (2.0, Zero, Notebook).

His library music can be heard across the globe (Australian [APRA] films & broadcasting, USA [SESAC] films) and has featured on major broadcasting networks in the UK, including ITV (Tonight), E4 and the BBC (Top Gear, Watchdog, Panorama, Crimewatch, Deadly Dinosaurs, The One Show). In the world of video games Chris has worked on a number of projects, including the recent Stadia exclusive title Get Packed. In October 2020 his first solo original soundtrack will be heard on the upcoming multi-platform release Transformers BattleGrounds (PS4, XBox One, Nintendo Switch, Steam).

As a performer Chris has worked with a number of top bands and professionals, having performed with Jack Jones, Guy Barker, Tim Garland and even Queen legend Brian May, among others, and has many international festivals – including Montreux, Vienne and North Sea – to his name. He held the Baritone chair with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) from 2011-13, contributing a number of charts, including the title track of the highly acclaimed album, The Change. He has played live on BBC 1 and Radio 3, performed at the BBC Proms (broadcast on BBC4) and been named as ‘One To Watch’ in Jazzwise magazine. In 2014, Chris won a place on the Metropole Orchestra Arrangers’ Workshop, working with renowned composer and conductor Vince Mendoza, and Grammy award winning vocalist Gregory Porter.

Chris began his professional career at Southampton University, where he first began to specialise in jazz and composition. He went on to achieve a distinction in his Masters in Music at Royal Holloway, University of London, before completing a PhD scholarship in studio composition. As an educator he has been invited to lead and facilitate a wide range of events across Europe, and as a lecturer he has led courses in Studio and Media Composition, Orchestration and Jazz History at Royal Holloway, University of London.
