Elizabeth Purnell - Composer, Sound Designer, Orchestrator



Sound Designer


Geo Geo

Originally from London, now based in Bristol, I'm a composer, arranger and sound designer working in film, theatre, TV and radio. I studied at Bristol University, gaining an MA in composition. My interest in electronic and contemporary classical music led me toward music for media, and sound design for theatre.

I'm also a very in demand arranger and orchestrator having worked on many BAFTA, EMMY and Oscar winning scores for feature films, TV Drama, pop  arrangements and BBC natural history series. Conducting these scores has taken me to Prague, Macedonia, Spain, London and Cardiff to work with world class orchestras and ensembles.

I'm often asked to be on judging panels for various organisations: Royal Television Society, West of England Awards; Wildscreen, Music/sound category. Teaching includes: tutor: music dissertations at the National Film and Television School; Lecturer in Advanced Orchestration, Bristol University.
