Belgian-based composer Brian Clifton writes for film and television across both the US and European industries as well as contributing his talents to short films, musicals, theatre productions, commercials and game soundtracks. He is well-known in Belgium as the composer of Jupiler Proleague Hymne, a grand symphonic orchestral theme that has been played before every premier league soccer game since 2011.
Brian’s major Belgian and Dutch feature credits include: Bingo, Bobby and the Ghost Hunters, Blinker En De Blixvaten, The Dark Diamond, Moins Morte Que Les Autres, De kollega’s maken de brug, Ellektra and Trouble In Paradise.
He has written the music for a great number of shorts including the award-winning Droomtijd by Tom Van Avermaet who went on to be Oscar nominated.
After meeting acclaimed Belgian children’s writer Marc de Bel while scoring the film adaptaton of Marc’s Blinker En De Blixvaten, they went on to collaborate on a number of projects including the hit youth stage rock musical The Kriegels.
In 2016, Brian scored the Hollywood feature Everything But A Man which saw him reunite with Bird of Prey producer Steven J. Wolfe. His other US films include Bird Of Prey featuring Britain’s Richard Chamberlain & Lesley Ann Warren & Jennifer Tilly, Back in Business and Bayou Ghost, all of which combined his signature acoustic orchestration with electronics, sound design and programming.
Most recently are the popular Dutch Tv series GIPS, and this year the star ensemble cast filled movie Cruise Control.
Just finished is his soundscape yet thematic score for a unique tv docu serie about the world’s nr 1 dj duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.
And it all started in 1985 with his connection to producer David Puttnam and The Mission who persuaded him to move to Los Angeles to learn his trade and spread his wings.
