Andrew Potterton

Versatile composer Andrew Potterton is a natural storyteller, bringing narratives to life through expressive electronic music. Andrew is the Curator of the MT Electronic label.

MediaTracks is a passionate company with music at the heart of the organisation

West Yorkshire based composer Andrew Potterton grew up in a very musical family, and he’s been passionate about music for as long as he can remember. He began composing when he was in his late teens, and since then he has built a diverse career as an electronic composer, producer, programmer and music lecturer.

Andrew’s musical output is wide-ranging, including electro-acoustic compositions, modern classical pieces, soundtracks, electronic pop and dance music. He was drawn to writing media production music because of his love of telling stories through music. Over the last ten years, he’s written music for TV, film, theatre productions, dance performances, art installations and computer games. He’s been working with Mediatracks since 2021, and we’re looking forward to seeing his music bring a wide range of projects to life!

Alongside his work as a composer, Andrew has been a music lecturer for over ten years. This role has allowed him to support new musical talent from around the world, and students of Andrew’s have gone on to sign recording and publishing deals with Sony Music, Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group.

When he’s not busy composing or teaching, Andrew is a keen outdoor swimmer and surfer. He enjoys travelling the world and jumping in the sea wherever he can!
