ON HIS ORIGINAL MUSIC FOR CHANNEL 4 DOCUMENTARY 'NEVER SEEN A DOCTOR' (2016)

 

'Never Seen a Doctor managed to rise above its reality TV trappings, including a jaunty score that might have been repurposed from an old episode of Come Dine With Me.' - The Guardian

 

 

ON HIS ORIGINAL SCORE & SOUND DESIGN FOR SCI-FI DRAMA 'STASIS' (2015)

 

'As evocative and textured as anything you will hear on the silver screen. I even bought my own copy after the show!' - Female Arts

 

'Alex Burnett's filmic soundtrack to the show is incredibly impressive. The score gives it a wonderful sparse, desolate and most importantly celestial feel to the show. His music move(s) the pace along and creates a wonderful space-punk atmosphere.' - Grumpy Gay Critic

 

'The sound design and score from Alex Burnett is excellent, which helps provide an other-worldly, technological future' - I Am Boards

 

'The brilliantly atmospheric soundscape by Alex Burnett make(s) us feel as if we are in the bowels of the spaceship' BAFTA award-winning writer John Foster

 

 

ON HIS ORIGINAL SCORE & SOUND DESIGN FOR 'WHO IS MOLOCH?' (2013)

 

'Particular plaudits are due to...Alex Burnett for the dark and complex soundscape that accompanied the play.'- The Londoneer

 

'The soundscape is fitting, particularly the reflection of actors’ voices while they're off-stage. Composer Alex Burnett is selling his scores outside the venue and it's well worth the listen.' - What's On Stage

 

 

ON HIS ORIGINAL SCORE FOR 'WHAT IT FEELS LIKE' (2011)

 

'The well thought out soundtrack only enhanced and never eclipsed the performances of the actors and at times made it feel like watching a high budget TV drama.' - EdFringe Review

 

'Supported by an excellent original score, which had the woman sitting next to me in tears by the final scene, I cannot not recommend this play enough.' - DamoWords Fringe Blog

 

 

TESTIMONIALS

 

'An incredibly talented composer, immensely dedicated to delivering compositions of the absolute highest quality. Alex has a great ability to work to any creative brief both independently and through collaborative processes. What makes his work special is that it retains elements of traditional musicality whilst very much being a product of experimentation, creating an enthralling and innovative signature sound. '

 

Jonathan Woodhouse: Artistic Director - Encompass Productions

 

'In Alex I was fortunate to find a composer who analyses a film, taking on board its contents, and then compliments it with a composition that follows its emotional path. He was also happy to listen to my development suggestions and instrument preferences. I am more than pleased with the composition Alex has created for me and would happily recommend him to another filmmaker looking for an original score.'

 

Felicity Boylett: Director- 'Birds' (0110 Films)

 

'Alex is able to quickly understand a brief, an example of this is when his talents were utilised in a theatrical production that I directed: “The Accused” by Jeffrey Archer. He grasped the plot immediately, writing background and transitional music that was able to move the play along, as well as create a suitably tense atmosphere for this courtroom drama. He has provided original music for many of our society productions as well as a re-arrangement of the theme for “Fawlty Towers” which was most memorable. I find this young man to be both professional and mature in his attitude to his work and completely reliable, both artistically and in terms of hitting deadlines.'
