Having completed his first BBC commission whilst still at university, Ty Unwin left academic life with a music degree from Huddersfield University in 1990 and a determination to avoid "proper" work and instead write music for a living. This stubbornness has paid dividends. He is now an established composer, specialising in writing music for media in a variety of idioms with recent commissions taking him around the world. Clients include BBC, Channel Four, Channel Five, ITV, TLC and Discovery.
As well as writing for TV he has written scores for several commercial videos and numerous orchestral works which have been performed throughout Europe. Recent CD releases have included recordings of a number of these classical works on "Big Steel Drum", the BBC soundtrack to "Vets in the Wild" and six tracks on Sony's triple platinum "Classic Chillout" Album series. He is currently writing / producing albums for Dina Carroll, New Model Army, Justin Sullivan and Joolz Gianni.
