Roger Goula is a London-based composer and multi-instrumentalist whose range of original works spans across albums, film scores, and music for dance, TV, theatre, and art installation. Inspired by renaissance and baroque music, as well as minimalism, Roger’s music delves into an experimental approach of blending electronics with classical chamber and orchestral music through repetition of minimal elements and emotionally-transporting textures. 


Roger Goula trained as classical guitarist and composition in Barcelona and graduated in music composition from Goldsmiths College, London. He specialised in film music obtaining an MA from the National Film and Television School and gained a PhD in composition under the supervision of pioneering English composer Michael Finnissy. 


Recently, Roger composed the score for All That Breathes, directed by Shaunak Sen. The documentary premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2022, where it was awarded the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize under the documentary category, and went on to win the L’œil d’Or award at Cannes Film Festival, as well as gaining an Academy Oscar Nomination for Best Feature Documentary 2022.  


Roger has scored many award-winning films, which have been presented at festivals such as Venice Film Festival, Toronto, Sundance, Tribeca and BFI amongst many others, and was also featured, in the prestigious ASCAP Composers Spotlight at Sundance Film Festival 2018 and 2022. 

Roger has scored many renowned feature documentaries such as the BIFA-nominated Versus: The Life And Films Of Ken Loach; the BAFTA-nominated feature The Hard Stop from director George Amponsah; and the BIFA Winner Next Goal Wins, which was met with critical acclaim, obtaining a score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. In 2020, Roger composed a beautiful score to accompany the documentary profile of the veteran Swedish director, Roy Andersson, Being A Human Person. 


Roger has also composed for numerous award-winning television programmes, including the BAFTA-winning BBC drama Killed By My Debt; the BAFTA-nominated BBC drama Against The Law, starring Daniel Mays; the final episodes of the crime drama series Inspector George Gently; the feature documentaries Diana: 7 Days and The Betrayed Girls both directed by Henry Singer, the BAFTA-winning BBC docudrama The Left Behind, and the ITV/Netflix flagship series The Ripper. Roger also collaborated with film & TV composer Harry Escott on the score for the ITV fantasy-drama series The Frankenstein Chronicles starring Sean Bean. 


In 2016, Roger released his debut solo album Overview Effect via Cognitive Shift. Critics celebrated the album with BBC 6 Music’s Mary Anne Hobbs describing the album as “mind-blowing”. Multiple tracks from the album have been synced widely across various artistic platforms including The Last Race, the feature film by acclaimed American visual artist and filmmaker Michael Dweck, premiering at Sundance Film Festival in 2018.  Roger’s second studio album, Ecosystems, has been released on the 14th June 2023 obtaining a great public reception. 


Having built up an impressive portfolio as a composer for fringe theatre, short films, and contemporary dance, Roger collaborated with prodigy dancer Dickson Mbi in partnership with the Akran Khan Dance Company on numerous choreographies including DUENDE which premiered at Sadlers Wells in 2018, and most recently the Olivier Award winning production ENOWATE which was premiered at Sadler’s Wells on October 14th & 15th 2022.
