Timo Baker
Composer


Biog.

Timo Baker is a highly creative and versatile composer. Over the last 15 years he has written scores for an array of tv documentaries that have been broadcast across the globe, had several tracks licensed by the CSI: NY series, written music for Hollywood film trailers and composed music for a plethora of world class companies including Universal, CBS, BBC, National Geographic, MTV, Coca Cola, Sony, Nokia, and Dolby.

His thoughtful and evocative documentary scores provide an epic sense of drama and tension to the diverse subject matter. Recent projects include Genius Of Nature (BBC), River Monsters (ITV), Stan Lee's Superhumans (History), Secrets Of Wild India (National Geographic) and several series of Nature Shock (Five/NatGeo).

Timo is equally at home working with big beats and rock noise, as in the case of the hard-hitting score for PlayStation game Ghost Rider and the jagged Nokia phone ad as well as flagship TV themes including BBC's Snooker, science fiction spin-off Totally Dr Who and kid's nature show Sam and Mark's Guide to Dodging Disasters.

A multi-faceted musician - guitarist, bassist, singer and keyboard player -Timo has been writing and performing for over 20 years. He was first signed to Blind Recordings/BMG with techno-rock band Crazy Gods of Endless Noise in 1994 and is currently the creative force behind T Minus 50, an atmospheric, beat-based project whose second album ‘Collisions and Lifelines’ is set for release in 2013.

In 2010, Timo was brought in to the stable of recording artists and composers (including Liam Howlett of The Prodigy and DJ Shadow) of LA-based film music agents, Pusher Music, where he has become one of their “go to” composers, having been asked to pitch for a number of Hollywood film trailers including Man Of Steel, The Hobbit, Avengers Assemble, The Fighter, Inception and Contagion. Last year, all this hard work came to fruition with several tracks being sync'd on trailers: The Adjustment Bureau (starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt), Man On A Ledge (Sam Worthington) and quirky alien comedy, Paul (starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost).

Timo has recently written the score to a short film, “A Cosmological Fantasia”, which is currently being screened by BAFTA around the UK. It is based on the space landscape graphics from the hit BBC series “Wonders Of The Universe” created by film effects wizards, BDH.
