Molly Nyman
The Music Award - UK
  
 
Molly Nyman
Composer
 
Molly Nyman is the recipient of TheWIFTS Sound Award 2014 for her work as a composer on films including I Am Slave, A Mighty Heart, and The Road to Guantanamo.

Molly Nyman's illustrious musical career started at the age of three. At four she played the cello, flute and piano, and began composing at the tender age of eight. Nyman won a scholarship to the Centre for Young Musicians which she attended between the ages of 11 and 18. London's Centre for Young Musicians was founded in 1970 and has provided high quality music training for thousands of talented students. Uniquely amongst London training providers, CYM's focus is pan-London: its students are drawn from all of London's boroughs and principally from schools in the maintained sector. The CYM Saturday Centre's status as one of the Department for Children, Schools and Families Centres for Advanced Training (CATs) reflects CYM's dual approach to supporting musical excellence. The centre prides itself on combining excellence with equal access.

At CYM, Molly won the prize for National Choral Composition and went on to play in the London Soloists Chamber Orchestra (LSCO) and the London Schools Symphony Orchestra (LSSO).

After studying Music and Composition at Sussex and City Universities, Nyman worked at Classic FM and a number of various TV companies, before taking the independent step to form her own company, focused on composing music for film and television and also performing live with a 13 piece band.

Forging strong relationships with the British film industry's most renowned and stimulating directors, Molly Nyman has worked on many award winning and critically acclaimed films including: David Slade's controversial Hard Candy (2005); Michael Winterbottom's A Mighty Heart (2007); Road To Guantanamo (2006); Nick Broomfield's Ghosts (2006); the film of Donald Crowhurst's 1968 round the world yacht race, Deep Water (2006); I Am Slave (2010); Poppy Shakespeare (BAFTA nominated film); Father & Son (ITV); Stephen Fry in America (BBC); Michael Palin's New Europe (BBC); and Shifty, a BIFA nominated score.

Her comprehensive musical career and recognized talent has also seen her work around the world. In Dubai, she rewrote the Dubai national anthem and worked as Music Director for the largest concert held in the country with a 350 piece choir, 95 piece orchestra, which also had acrobats thrown into the event.

Nyman's skills as a highly regarded composer is reflected in her having been asked to sit on the Jury of numerous music awards including The Ivor Novello Jury 2009 (The Ivors celebrate, honour and reward excellence in songwriting and composing); BAFTA TV Jury 2010; British Independent Film Awards Jury 2011; and the Grierson British Documentary Awards Jury 2013 (The Grierson exists to promote documentary filmmaking and to celebrate the work of John Grierson).

With the advent of technology, Nyman has a universal interest in how works are published and protected, strongly feeling that the diversity of digital music requires a constant proactive enforcement of the composer's rights.

In 2011, Molly Nyman was voted by the Performing Rights Society membership to join the board of PRS as a Writer Director where she also sits on the International and Distribution committees.

Her taste and passion for music is diverse, ranging from Plan-B to Bernard Hermann to Thomas Newman to Stravinsky to Gorillaz...
