DNA Musics primary aim is to create the most original music in the Film & Television industry and to provide a personal service to producers and directors throughout the whole life of a production, from suggesting composers and music at script-stage through to scoring and final delivery. Where possible we like to be involved early so that we can work in partnership and achieve the creative vision of the director. Our composers are experienced across all genres of production and will deliver exactly what you want.
DNA currently represents 19 Composers & Songwriters: Alan Hawkshaw, Anne Nikitin, Andy Sloman, Barrington Pheloung, Ben Park, Brian Bennett OBE, Chad Hobson, Cyril Morin, David James Herbert, Frank Ilfman, John Hardy, Juliette Jaimes, Kirsty Hawkshaw, Liam Bates, Lee Safar, Matthew Slater, Melissa Parmenter, Richard G Mitchell and Warren Bennett.
To make your life easier, DNA will co-ordinate the whole score process. We will supply you with comprehensive music budgets and working with our composers and agents we will hire the best musicians, orchestrators, conductors, score-readers, copyists, engineers, programmers and studios available.
Composer Contract Consultancy
DNA also offers a contract consultancy service for composers not represented by DNA. We can liaise with your client and negotiate and conclude contracts on your behalf.

If you would like a song specifically written for your feature film or programme, please contact us at DNA and we will be only too happy to discuss ideas with you and our writers.
The core business of DNA is a composer agency, however, as a part of our service to producers we will offer access to our Music Supervisors who are instrumental in negotiating soundtrack deals with the majors. Depending on the score or compilation, we also have relationships with independent distributors who will be able to release your score.
We can handle all your sychronisation needs. Where songs may be expensive to clear we can either negotiate for you using our music supervisors, who have a proven track record in clearance and most importantly relationships with all the major and independent record companies and publishers and if not possible we can suggest alternative songs for licensing.
Worldwide Administration & Collection
DNA can set up an administration deal for your production company with established and efficient publishers via our ongoing relationships.
