With the Disney feature The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Joby Talbot established himself as a one of the strongest young composers in Hollywood. While his main strength is his orchestral ability, it is his electronic and pop prowess that elevates him above his classical peers. Joby's score to the primetime comedy The League of Gentlemen won the Royal Television Society Award for Best Title Music and a series of high profile commissions followed from BBC television. In the same year The British Film Institute asked Talbot to compose a new score for Hitchcock's silent classic The Lodger. His score to the Burst Pipe advertisement was nominated by the MPA for Best Commissioned Music in an adverting campaign. He then wrote the score to the long awaited film The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse. Joby has worked with all the major UK orchestras and was commissioned by the prestigious BBC Proms Festival. Classic FM appointed Joby their first ever Composer in Residence, the album for which was released by Sony/BMG. His past recording projects include work with Neil Hannon in the UK pop phenomenon, The Divine Comedy, Ute Lemper's critical masterpiece, Punishing Kiss and a live collaboration with Michael Nyman, which was awarded the Edinburgh Festival's Critics Choice in 1997. Now highly in demand as a pop arranger, Talbot has worked with artists such as Travis, Tom Jones, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Paul McCartney, producer Nigel Godrich and the White Stripes. Joby's recent credits include Is There Anybody There?, which stars Michael Caine, the Sundance Film Festival hit Son of Rambow, and Franklyn (starring Ryan Phillippe and Eva Green). His current projects include a new full-length work for The Royal Ballet based on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
