My Photo


Welcome to my website! I'm David Simkins, an MA Music with Innovation student with a developing career as a Film Composer, Conductor, Sound Designer, and Music Supervisor. My compositional portfolio in fusion music and comedy drama film includes two feature-length films for Amazon Prime release. My soundtrack to Snake Hotel (2023) is for the producers of Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey (2023).

My Grade 8 performance skills, key understanding of orchestration, and detailed research into different musical styles enables me to create stylish bespoke music. Previous works have included influences ranging from 90s acid house and electroacoustic music to Balinese Gamelan and West-African drumming. I am currently producing a hauntological, plunderphonics album in alternative rock and electronic music.

To inform my music production, I take leadership roles in orchestral ensembles, especially a conductor. During my time at the University of Bristol, I have conducted the University Chamber and Philharmonic Orchestras, and worked as an assistant music director with operatic and music theatre groups.

I have secured study in Composing for Film, TV & Games at the National Film and Television School and the National Youth Film Academy in 2023.

Find me on IMDB, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and SoundCloud.

There’s more information about my creative practice, skills, and experience on my composing, conducting, production, creative industries, and innovation pages.

I’m always looking to network, so if you’d like to collaborate on a project, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

“David's infectious enthusiasm for all things creative makes him a joy to collaborate with. . .
he is simply an asset to have on any production.”
