Riccardo Soriano - student BAFTA shortlisted film director
"Working with Aaron was a real pleasure. His deep passion and professional approach have taken the project to a higher level. I am sure that he will greatly succeed in his career thanks to his great talent and artistic sensibilty."
Leto Meade - Director, Death of the Gods (Winner 'Best Children's Film Award 8-15', London International Animation Festival; selected for multiple Oscar and BAFTA qualifying festivals)
"I had the pleasure of collaborating with Aaron on the score for my animated short. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience to work with someone who was so passionate about both the project and the role that music would play in it. Aaron has a keen eye for understanding the appropriate placement of music within film and was always open and communicative to collaborate with. His music brought a new depth of emotion to the piece that I couldn’t have conceptualised alone. I am eagerly anticipating the opportunity to work with him again."
Sarah Lanaway - Game Designer, Supermassive studios
Aaron is an excellent collaborator. He is very reliable and can always be counted on to meet deadlines. Aaron can take even a vague brief and compose extremely suitable pieces for the tone and intent of the project. In addition to being a very talented composer, Aaron also has great technical skills with FMOD and WWise, and I highly recommend him.
Paul Mealor, internationally acclaimed composer - on Aaron's choral music:
"Aaron King is a talented and original composer of music for choir. His music is lyrical, well crafted and full of colour. Choirs everywhere need to sing this music."
James Fellows - Musical director, Luceat Choir
Aaron’s music fits the choir’s voice like a perfect glove. His ability to craft melody is unique among modern composers, and lends a beautiful spirituality to any service. We can’t wait to perform more works by this exceptional musician
Joseph Dobos - Conductor, Wayne State University Concert Band
"This is the kind of music that wind bands ought to be playing... Thank you for writing such beautiful music."
Cherwell (student newspaper), on new musical 'Nice Guy'
"By far the stand out element, however, is Aaron King’s score, accompanied by Sam Norman’s lyrics...The score is truly a gift that keeps on giving – from Isla’s unofficial theme of ‘Everything’s Fine’ reprised to horrifying effect, to the duets and three-part harmonies which adorn the piece with perfect balance."
OxStu (student newspaper), on new musical 'Cyrano de Bergerac'
"...the audience is treated to a delightful original score composed by King which is bursting with a sense of power and antiquated splendour, all the while betraying a slightly sombre, melancholic tone. There are a multitude of original songs... including a variety of stunning ballads..."
Sam Norman, playwright and author.
"In the time I’ve known and collaborated with him as a lyricist, Aaron has proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is an outstandingly talented and versatile composer; together we have written everything from tangos to musical anthems to folk tunes, arranged for lone pianos, jazz bands and orchestras. Besides being frighteningly quick and original (he often composes entire songs in his head, notating them later) he is a pleasure to work with: accommodating, polite, cheerful and modest. I have no doubt that he will do great things."
