Allan Wilson has been involved in the music recording industry since 1982, orchestrating and conducting scores mainly for Film, Television and Games. Having studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London he went on to teach conducting and orchestral training at the State University of New York at Fredonia where he was awarded a Master of Music degree. He has given lecture recitals in Britain, USA and Canada and was a freelance trumpet player for many years. He has an international reputation as a specialist studio conductor/orchestrator working regularly for producers and studios from both sides of the Atlantic in London, Bratislava, Munich, Berlin and Prague for composers such as Danny Elfman, Christopher Young, Brian Tyler, Steve Price, Graeme Revell, Richard Hartley, Mark Isham, Basil Poledouris, Robert Folk, Michael Giacchino, James Hannigan, Richard Jacques and Russell Shaw, to name but a few. Allan also conducted all of the music for the Doha 2006 Asian Games, the London O2 Arena Premier of “Ben-Hur Live” in 2009 and is probably one of the most prolific studio conductors in Europe if not the world. He regularly records with the Philharmonia in London.
In recent years, as orchestral and choral music has been increasingly introduced into the games industry, Allan’s expertise as advisor, orchestrator, arranger, conductor and music supervisor has been utilised by more and more composers of game scores.
Allan Wilson’s many conducting credits include films such as Avengers: Age of Ultron, Nightcrawler, Fury, Elysium, Cloverfield, Sleepy Hollow, and games such as Fable, the Harry Potter series, Evil Genius, Call of Duty 2, Dead Space 3, Myst IV, Kinect Star Wars, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and many others.
