Angus MacRae is a composer and musician based in London.

He originally trained as a pianist and went on to graduate with a degree in music from Nottingham University. He has since collaborated with award-winning filmmakers, choreographers, theatre directors, animators and photographers from across Europe and beyond. 

Recent film credits include short film The Listener, which received its European premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2015; feature documentary On Guardian Mountain; animated short Way Out, by acclaimed Chinese animator Yukai Du; and Interlude, winner of the Sci-Fi London 48 hour film challenge 2015. He has composed for international advertising campaigns for Sony and Toyota, and worked with ensembles including the Amaryllis Trio and Berlin Philharmonic Octet.

Work for dance includes Lucid Grounds, choreographed by Tamsin Fitzgerald for 2FacedDance, which was a collaboration with composer Alex Baranowski that toured the UK in early 2015; and Meeting, which premiered at The Place, London and was subsequently selected as a finalist in the Copenhagen International Choreography Competition. For theatre, Angus has composed for a diverse range of productions performed at venues including Trafalgar Studios, the Finborough Theatre, Southwark Playhouse, National Theatre Studio and Pleasance Edinburgh.

Angus's debut EP, Awake, was released in early 2015. Set against a backdrop of spiralling tape delays, distant voices and deep analog synthesisers, the 4 track album revolves around a collection of intimate piano improvisations, performed by the composer and recorded with the finest collection of vintage equipment at Snap Studios, London.
