Jessica Dannheisser

Composer

Hi, I'm Jessica, a British, London-based composer working in film, television, games and contemporary music. I'm at SXSW with Factory 42 for the launch of Hold The World, a groundbreaking virtual reality experience featuring Sir David Attenborough, set in London's Natural History Museum, which I scored. It will be available to try out at JW Marriott Salon 5-6 11am-6pm on the 13th - 15th March.

I've just finished scoring a romantic comedy feature film called 'Daddy Issues' due for release in 2018. Other recent scores include BBC comedy drama 'Eric Ernie & Me', BBC One’s historical drama-documentary 'Six Wives', and Sky's 'Adolf Hitler, The Artist'. Feature scores include the Emmy award-winning 'WWII From Space' (History Channel), 'Miracle Landing on the Hudson' (National Geographic Channel) and 'Knuckle'. I also composed the music for the BBC Three comedy series 'Siblings' (BBC Three).

My ongoing art music work includes 'Sound Portrait Project' - musical portraits inspired by interviews with performers for that same performer to play, which aim to open questions regarding the subjective nature of self-image in a 'selfie'-saturated world.

I love working with other artists; I orchestrated Mica Levi's Oscar-nominated score for 'Jackie', have arranged strings for Kasabian on two of their hit albums, '48:13' and 'Velociraptor!', provided orchestrations for Bryan Ferry’s 2017 Hollywood Bowl concert, and also several concerts with The Cinematic Orchestra.

This will be my first ever SXSW and I can't wait! Looking forward to meeting you all.
