American composer Mike Ladouceur is among the most exciting and significant talents emerging today‚ with many high-profile film and TV projects to his name. Renowned on both sides of the Atlantic, his musical style blends orchestral and ambient electronic textures, and has been described by distinguished conductor and orchestrator Jeff Atmajian as “like listening to a beautiful impressionist painting”.
'Between Worlds', his debut album, was recorded at Angel Studios with a 42-piece orchestra and was launched at an immersive art installation at London’s Hospital Club in 2019. Among his many notable film and TV credits include music for Dateline (NBC) and Aurora Fearnley’s epic Sci-fi Pulsar (Little Northern Light/Reel Issues Films), which stars David Gyasi and Jessie Buckley.
Mike has written additional music and arrangements for His Dark Materials (HBO/BBC), Marcella (ITV/Netflix), Love Wedding Repeat (Netflix) and for Master Moley (Nottage Productions).
Mike worked as Orchestrator on major projects including Black Widow (Marvel), Ad Astra (Plan B), Gemini Man (Skydance/Paramount), 6 Underground (Netflix), Looking Up (Tianjin Chengzi Yinxiang Media), Where’s My Roy Cohn? (Sony) and Nae Pasaran (BBC Scotland). He also worked on the Music Department of Mission Impossible: Fallout (Paramount), The Emoji Movie (Sony) and Call the Midwife (BBC).
