Film & TV Music Composer

The Colours of South Africa - composed by Robin Hogarth - widely used for film and televisionBritish composer Robin Hogarth began writing music for film in 1972 (initially for two feature films - now for a much larger catalogue), and subsequently started writing music for TV.

He has written and produced the theme and incidental music for numerous South African TV series, and made for TV films.

These productions received local and international recognition (South African awards, as well as a New York Film Festival award).

They range from comedies to action thrillers, historical drama to modern dramas, covering a panorama of different musical styles.

Later film and TV music productions followed, from Anglia Survival to albums for film and television, now used all over the world - from Japan to Sweden, Korea to the USA:
