Julian Nott is a media composer best known for writing the music for the Wallace and Gromit films and Peppa Pig.
Julian has been a writer director of PRS since 2010, serving on the PRS for Music Board since 2014 as well as the main PRS Board. He is also currently the writer representative on the MCPS Board and was recently appointed a director of ICE Services, the pan-European online licensing organisation set up by PRS, GEMA and STIM.
Julian came to music fairly late. After university (a music scholar), he worked for the company now known as Accenture for three years (management consultancy) and as a journalist on financial and City matters for The Economist Publications. After several years at the National Film and Television School, he made documentary films for Channel Four TV, Arte Channel in France and WGBH in Boston. Along the way he also picked up a qualification as a (non-practising) barrister.
Julian’s composing credits include many films, dramas for BBC and ITV, and a significant collection of children’s animation. He won an Ivor Novello Award in 2009 for his score for Wallace and Gromit – A Matter of Loaf and Death and the Annie Award in 2006 for The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Drama credits include Lark Rise to Candleford (BBC), The Cazalets (BBC) and The Vice (ITV).
Julian hopes this combination of business experience, sitting on the other side of the fence as a film and TV producer, and now working as a media composer, will all prove useful to the PRS Board.
