Bryony Marks

Bryony is one of Australia’s most sought-after screen composers. She brings classical rigour and an insider’s perspective to her work.

Bryony is currently composing the music for Annealing, a dance work for The Australian Ballet’s Instruments of Dance triple bill, the TV comedy series Class of ’07 for Matchbox Pictures/Amazon Prime and the crime drama series Savage River for Aquarius Films/ABC TV. She has recently completed work on Patina, the premiere dance work for Alice Topp’s Project Animo.

Bryony’s score for Lambs of God was awarded ‘Best Original Score in Television’ and her music for 2040 ‘Best Original Score in a Documentary’ at the 2019 AACTA Awards.

Bryony completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Music Composition for Film and Television with 1st class Honours from the University of Melbourne’s Conservatorium of Music, and attended the inaugural Composers’ Program at the Australian National Academy of Music. She has received many commissions, including 4 string quartets, a quintet and a sextet, an opera excerpt and a 1-hour chamber opera, Crossing Live.
