Sophie Lloyd is a composer from Dorset, south west England. She is currently studying at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff and is always seeking opportunities to develop her skills in composition and sound design through collaboration with creative professionals.
Before starting her studies in Cardiff, Sophie spent two years attending the Junior Department of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. She also completed her Extended Diploma in Music Composition at Wiltshire College with Distinction.
Sophie has worked as composer assistant for Anne Nikitin, working on the Netflix production The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes. Sophie has also worked alongside composer James Griffiths on Spitfire Over Berlin, released in May 2022.
Most recently and as part of her degree studies, Sophie has been working on developing her creativity within theatrical works as well as film, merging melodic orchestral structures with minimalistic electronic material. Her latest projects have included the soundtrack to Phillip Pullman's The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage (dir. Zoe Templeman-Young) as well as Robert Ick's Mary Stuart (dir. Daniel Raggett).
Sophie has already written a number of scores for video games and short films for US-based companies. Video games have included Intern Pursuit for Pivot Business Consulting, Medieval Math for Lucerna Studios and, most recently, Toonworld for Magic Bytes. Sophie also wrote the film score and theme song for Files Don’t Lie, produced by Twisted Hair Productions.
In her spare time, Sophie likes to produce short rescores of film scenes that have specifically caught her eye, injecting her own individual personality into the sound. These include The Great Gatsby, Hacksaw Ridge and Frozen Planet. She writes scores for ensembles and orchestras, plays First Flute for the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra ‘Rusties’ and provides 1:1 Flute tuition for beginners and early grades.
Sophie's an incredibly intelligent composer, perceptive and astute and more than ready to meet every challenge thrown at her head on. I thought her work was utterly brilliant"
