					         DOMINIK SCHERRER
As an extremely colourful and original composer, Dominik is now emerging as one of the most
talented film composers of his generation. His scores include the supernatural love story Life
Line, directed by Jamie Payne for the BBC, and the eerily haunting score for the
Granada/BBC's reworking of Dracula, which starred David Suchet and Marc Warren. Dominik
scored the hugely successful Primeval (series 1, 2 & 3) as well as series 1 to 5 of Agatha Christie’s
Marple. He recently scored the latest instalment of Inspector George Gently for the BBC, the
taut thriller U B Dead, based on real events and starring David Morrisey and Christopher and His
Kind, Mammoth Screen's drama based on the memoirs of Christopher Isherwood.

In 2006 he wrote an eclectic score to the complex, dark and funny feature film Scenes Of A
Sexual Nature starring Ewan McGregor, Hugh Bonneville, Gina McKee and Sophie Okonedo for
Tin Pan Films. He wrote a wonderfully original score to the dark and twisted feature The Truth,
which received rave reviews, and then went onto score the feature Riprendimi (US title - "Good
Bye Heartache"), which was accepted to premier in competition at the Sundance Film Festival.
Other features include the award winning The Nine Lives of Tomas Katz (Strawberry Vale/UA) for
which Dominik received the Best Music Award at Spain's Estapona Film Festival; the Italian
comedy In Principio Erano Le Mutande (premiered at the Berlin Film Festival); Alice Through The
Looking Glass (Projector/Channel 4), starring Kate Beckinsale and Ian Holm; and Appetite
(Loud Mouse/J&M), starring Trevor Eve and Ute Lemper. Dominik also wrote the end title song
for this film, sung by Ute Lemper, which featured in the album ‘The Best of Ute Lemper’ (the
album reached No. 2 in the UK classical charts).

Dominik received great acclaim following the phenomenal success of his score to Agatha
Christie’s Miss Marple (ITV/WGBH), starring many of the most established actors working today.
His music is full of life, illustrated by his amazing and colourful orchestrations and as a result he
was awarded a Gold Medal for Best Original Music at The New York International TV Festival
2006 and has continued to create imaginative scores for all five seasons. He followed this with
a wonderful period score to Jericho, starring Robert Lindsay, as a 1950's detective and a
contemporary score to the drama If I Had You.

Earlier TV credits include We Can Make You Talk (Tiger Aspect/History Channel NY), about the
treatment of terrorist suspects in Guantanamo and Footprints, (Tigerlilly Films), a documentary
filmed in Afghanistan. Dominik also directed and scored a contemporary biker opera Hell For
Leather, which has been shown at more than 60 film festivals. He is a member of Taxi Val
Mentek, the avant-garde pop band/video art duo, and also composes performance music for
the theatre, including Forkbeard Fantasy's Shooting Shakespeare, which has toured.
