London-based composer Michael Burdett has written original music in many styles for numerous television programmes, adverts, trailers, theatre productions and TV station idents.

His work includes everything from BBC’s Masterchef, Homes Under The Hammer, and Sun, Sea and Bargain Spotting to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s posing music for his performance in the documentary film Total Rebuild about his (Arnold’s, not Michael’s) return to the world of competitive Body building back in the 1980s.
