Cellist & Composer @ Deutsche Grammophon Artist
Peter Gregson is a composer and cellist ‘working at the forefront of the new music scene’ (The New Yorker).
His debut solo album, Terminal, was commissioned by Bowers & Wilkins and launched in April 2010 and recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios. This led to his first ballet commission, Hubert Essakow’s FLOW at The Print Room, W11.
Lights in the Sky, his second album, composed for cello, piano, and analogue synthesisers, was released at Imogen Heap’s Reverb Festival in August 2014, and his third studio album, TOUCH, was released to critical acclaim on American high fidelity label, Sono Luminus, in August 2015. His string quartet, Chorale (five) was recently remixed by FYFE into his latest single, Better Man.
In demand as a cellist for his improvisation work across major film and television soundtracks for composers including Lorne Balfe, Alex Heffes, Rupert Gregson-Williams, Michael Price and many others, Spitfire Audio developed a sample library of Peter’s extended cello techniques and sounds from his blue, five-string electric cello, all recorded at Pixel, his studio at Tileyard Studios, London.
The soundtrack to his first feature film, A Little Chaos, directed by Alan Rickman and starring Kate Winslet and Matthias Schoenaerts, was nominated for the Public Choice award at the World Soundtrack Awards and named Vanity Fair critic Richard Lawson’s score of the year 2015. He recently completed the music for Boundless, an open world game for Playstation and PC.
