Andrew Edwards, Film and Theater Composer

I would like to present another very accomplished film composer, Andrew Edwards. I had the great pleasure of studying Music Composition for the Screen with Andrew at Columbia College Chicago.  Right off the bat, he took me under his wing and mentored me throughout the two-year program.  His music is inspiring.  Andrew has incredible talent and is deft at bringing films of all genres to life through the music.

Andrew Edwards is a Chicago-based film, web, and theater composer. His textural style is flavored by his twin loves of pop and contemporary classical music, and is frequently tinged with melancholy. He received his BA in Music Composition/Theory from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and — under the direction of Andy Hill — his MFA in Music Composition for the Screen from Columbia College Chicago. He is the owner of Blue Police Box Music; a full-service music creation studio on the North side of Chicago, and the composer-in-residence for Chicago Tap Theatre. His music has been heard in national commercials, international trailers, and countless short films and documentaries, including, A Message From The East, Bringing Hope To Justice, and the forthcoming Bailout. His work on web series’ includes: Trep Life, DorkumentaryTV, and the upcoming Robin Hood update, Prince of Thieves. He just completed work on a Doctor Who spinoff audio drama for Big Finish productions, and is writing the original score for a “Tap Opera” based on the 1960 French horror film, “Les yeux sans visage”, with Marc Smith (the creator of the Poetry Slam). He lives adjacent to Chicago’s beautiful Andersonville neighborhood with his partner, also Andrew, and his stalwart cat, Max.
