Louis Stevens

Louis Sevens is a Melbourne, Australia based composer and multi-instrumentalist with particular interests in theatre and film. His compositional outlook is concerned with the complexities of human relationships and the emotional outcomes they inspire. Taking inspiration from such composers as John Adams, Johan Johannsson and Olafur Arnalds, Louis incorporates a post-minimalist style in his music giving greater emphasis to complex textures and the expressive use of tone-colour. Louis’ music seeks to create emotion-based experiences for his audiences.

Louis has written for a large range of ensembles including orchestral works, solo works and chamber music. However, his passion and main output of work is writing music for screen. Louis worked extensively with the Victorian College of the Arts scoring such films as The People We Have Lost, Interface and Base Camp. I have most recently worked with the director Will Storr on his film WILCO which is set for release in 2019.

Louis have recently written music for Tellulah Theatre’s original production of A Dog Called Monkey written by Laura Collins and the University of Melbourne Shakespeare Companies production of Twelfth Night where I received an award for outstanding sound design/composition from Union House Theatre.

Louis have also worked as an arranger and orchestrator for the Melbourne Opera Company where he was successful in arranging pieces for the Melbourne Opera Chamber Group and Sylvie Paladino who both toured China in 2017.   Sylvie Paladino went on toperform one of my arrangements with the Australian Pops Orchestra at Hamer Hall in January this year. Other highlights through Melbourne Opera include arranging large orchestrations for international artist Mattia Campetti.  

Louis have completed a Bachelor of Music (Composition) Honours at the University of Melbourne under the esteemed Australian composer, Elliot Gyger where he graduated Valedictorian.  The Joyce Mckenna travel scholarship was also awarded to me to complete a Master of Screen Soring at the University of South California which has been planned for 2019.
