Robert T Harvey is an experienced composer based in LonDon UK
“First and foremost the duty of any composer is to deliver. Whether or not your delivery has style is another matter. I’ve always felt that if your first 8 bars of music are strong, you can make the next 32000 work without issue. I always make sure the foundation of my ideas are solid enough to allow me to get a project over the line early. It’s all about the integrity and integration with the vision of the writer, director and producer. Understanding stylistic approaches of the people who’s shoulders you’re standing on and having taste. If you can balance those plates for the entire production cycle while managing expectation, you’re in a good position to bring out the best in something that someone else might think already finished.”
“Recently I’ve enjoyed a measure of success. I’ve worked over a couple of really prestigious Big Finish releases which I’m happy to say are some of my most proudest works. Blind Terror The Gods of Frost by Guy Adams is one such project.”
“Another such project is starring Derek Jacobi, who’s reprising his roll as The Master from the timeless Doctor Who universe”
“In both project’s my goal is to support some world class acting with some music and sound design that isn’t in your face. I understand that dialogue must always be at the top of the totem poll.”

“Special mention must also go to Robert T Harvey for one of the best sound designs heard on a Big Finish audio in a fair while. Harvey also composed the music for this release and it perfectly aids the atmosphere being created.”
"It takes all of the elements being their best in order to achieve this level of craftsmanship and directors Lisa Bowerman and Helen Goldwyn have perfectly guided their team through 4 excellent stories but the music and sound design by Robert T Harvey are what shine centre stage as they blanket and these stories with textures so fine you may find yourself wondering why you ever paid for a 3-D film when you could be this immersed just with sound."
"Working with Rob on this set has been a highlight, not only with his input to the recording process - where he even attended a couple of the studio days and joined the rest of us with shouting on the wild tracks! - but in hearing his music work as it came together,” producer Ian Atkins tells us, “I used to buy movie soundtrack CDs by the score, and this fits beautifully alongside them."
"One of the standout features is the music. It fits perfectly with the type of story that is being told and also creates an atmosphere which will make you believe you really are in the set time."
