Shaun Taylor McManus

Shaun Taylor McManus is a British composer and pianist with a focus on original compositions for screen and video game scores.

His compositions appeared on major networks such as HBO, and have been used on commercials for high profile brands such as Nokia. His notable video game scores include “The Bitter End”, a track which has been used in the hit online game “Apocalypse Rising”.

Shaun’s compositions are textural, vivid and cinematic: his melodies have a deep, tangible feel that translate well to the screen.

Inspired by eclectic composers the likes of Yann Tiersen, Ludovico Einaudi or Michael Nyman, his scores borrow from the vast vernacular of classical, folk and contemporary music with a unique twist.
