Profile

Of English descent yet Swiss born, Harold Squire grew up as a prolific and versatile music composer. He mainly created the score to a number of movies including theaters, TV and corporate films as well. Among his principal music influences, let us quote the music compositions of Hollywood based composers such as John Williams, Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard and Marco Beltrami.
Harold Squire’s musical sensibility is well regarded by others in the industry and is one of his greatest assets. His stylistic range is wide open and is keen on going any direction needed. He has proved to be very flexible and efficient with regards to the postproduction workflow that often comprises extremely tight deadlines.
Harold Squire also produces pop/rock and electronic music and his résumé involves a massive number of successful collaborations, including X’Senses (electronic trance music) Igor Doudenkov (Russian song) just to name only a few of them.

Bio

After graduating from the Conservatoire de Musique in Switzerland back in 2001, (classical / jazz piano and music theory) Harold Squire went on producing electronic music with a first LP recorded in collaboration with Q-LAB Recording & Productions in Basel (CH) « Dry Sunrain – En Harmonie ». Later in 2002, he built up his own recording studio and started producing a number of singers and other vocal performers. He also spent time to coach many artists to better perform and record their songs in his studio.

Since 2005 he’s been scoring movies within the theaters / TV / trailer / corporate & commercial movies industry. In 2006 and 2007, he traveled to the U.S and had the opportunity to visit recording stages and meet A-list top composer Christopher Young (Spider Man 3, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Core) he attented masterclasses with. He also had the chance to meet well known orchestra conductor Pete Anthony (Fantastic Four, X-Men Apocalypse, Fifty Shades Darker) and Brad Dechter (Orchestrator to James Newton Howard who scored “Signs, The Village, The Hunger Games”). Christopher Young spent some time coaching Harold and encouraged him in pursuing his career in the movie industry.

Harold Squire now keeps on producing music for films within Europe and with the U.S on a remote basis. In Switzerland, he collaborates with directors to score documentary movies broadcast on the national Swiss television (RTS).

Ein echter Komponist.

Olivier Zwicky, Actor / Acting Director

Your music reminds me of Philipp Glass’

Christopher Young, Hollywood A-list top composer (The Core, Spider-Man III, Untraceable, Priest)

We think Mr Squire will go any length to musically fulfilling directors’ wildest dreams

LazRael Lison, Director

What I really liked about working with Harold Squire for two of my feature comedies (Butch Jamie and Heterosexual Jill) is the way he understands the nuances of the beats and timing of the scene, accentuating the comedic moments without being too obvious or over-the-top. There is always a playful interplay of what’s happening on screen with the music, bringing a nice additional layer to everything. In my experience, it’s something that few composers who score comedy can do well

Michelle Ehlen, Director

I know I can always rely on Mr Squire to help me produce music that is truly unique. That, coupled with his constant professionalism, will help to make Mr Squire an astoundingly successful musician

Vincent Gillioz, L.A based composer

Thank you for a very efficient and attentive work

Orane Burri, Director
