Nathan’s compositional versatility is immediately visible in a selection of his work for the small screen. Indulging his love of animation, Nathan co-composed fifty episodes of Disney’s British Animation Award nominated series ‘101 Dalmatian Street’, broadcast worldwide on the Disney Channel and Disney+. Delving into the comedy scene, he recently worked with ‘Fleabag’ producers Two Brothers Pictures scoring a pilot episode for BBC Three’s new dramedy ‘Dinosaur’ and also scored Hat Trick’s teaser ‘Catching The Bus’ starring Jessica Hynes. Exploring more factual based programming, Nathan collaborated with Andrew Skeet composing music for several episodes of Amazon Prime’s ‘The Great Escapists’ as well as contributing music to the ‘Living Donor’ episode of Netflix’s ‘The Surgeon’s Cut’.
Nathan’s debut as a feature film composer, ‘Butterfly Kisses’, won a Crystal Bear at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival. His score was singled out in Peter Bradshaw’s Guardian review and Nathan has since gone on to score several more arthouse features. Nathan has also collaborated with Amelia Warner on her feature projects. He composed additional music and arranged the score as a whole for ‘Mary Shelley’ which was nominated for ‘Discovery of the Year’ at the World Soundtrack Awards. He also arranged and produced Amelia’s score for John Patrick Shanley’s ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ starring Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan.
Nathan has composed music for many commercial brands, from Sony Playstation’s Champions League Idents to Kew Gardens, and has worked as an arranger on major campaigns for McDonald’s and ASDA. His compositions have also been synchronised on a wide range of television such as ‘Blue Peter’ and ‘The One Show’.
After studying music at Oxford University, Nathan’s professional musical journey was kickstarted working as an orchestrator under the brilliant mentorship of Andrew Skeet. Nathan has contributed orchestrations to over 25 film and TV productions ranging from Black Mirror’s Emmy winning ‘USS Callister’ and the Oscar winning ‘Spiderman: Into The Spiderverse’ to ‘Enola Holmes’ and ‘Oceans 8’. Nathan also recently contributed arrangements to Decca’s ‘Bond 25’ album and in popular music has collaborated with Rosie Danvers on arrangements for the likes of Kanye West and Madonna.
Along with a myriad of short films, Nathan started his career composing for theatre. He was nominated early on for an Off West End Award and has particular experience in creating music for new writing with projects at Soho Theatre, Trafalgar Studios and the National Theatre Studio. Scores for stage have included productions at the Southwark Playhouse, Liverpool Playhouse, Nuffield Theatre, Oxford Playhouse and Tokyo Met Arts Theatre.
Currently based in London, Nathan holds British, North American and German citizenship.
