LCO Recordings


London Contemporary Orchestra is one of the foremost global session orchestras for films, television programmes, video games, albums, sample libraries, commercials, live shows and production music. As well as a reputation for a stylistically-advanced approach to film scoring sessions, LCO gives composers free rein to develop and incorporate avant-garde instrumental techniques.

LCO offers a unique, integrated composer-orchestra collaborative model, with the possibility of early workshops, giving composers unprecedented proximity to the players in the generation of new sounds. This model can be tailored to meet the individual needs of the composer and production.

We have collaborated in the studio with numerous leading composers, including Volker Bertelmann, Kris Bowers, Nainita Desai, Bryce Dessner, Jonny Greenwood, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Matthew Herbert, Jed Kurzel, Walter Mair, Anne Nikitin, Rob Simonsen and Thom Yorke.

Recent credits include Saltburn (Anthony Willis), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III (Walter Mair), Postcard from Earth (The Echo Society), Wall of Eyes (The Smile), A Haunting in Venice (Hildur Guðnadóttir) and One Life (Volker Bertelmann).
