Composer

Roger Mason

Roger Mason came to screen composing from the world of contemporary music.

Roger began learning classical piano at the age of three and later studied at the Melbourne Conservatory of Music. He recorded and toured internationally as keyboard player with Gary Numan before returning to Australia to join the Models, an iconic ARIA Hall of Fame band that achieved both national and international success.

Roger was the first non-American composer to be granted a scholarship by the Robert Redford Sundance Institute. This provided him the opportunity to study under the acclaimed screen composers David Newman, Alan Silvestri, Danny Elfman and Michael Kamen.

Rogers first venture into film score, the feature film AVA was nominated for the AFI Award for Best Original Score after which he worked for several years composing in Los Angeles. Now back in Australia Roger’s work is in demand across a wide range of projects.
