It is with great sadness that we share with you the loss of our friend and colleague Ricky Edwards, one of Australia's most prominent screen composers. Ricky's career as a musician, orchestrator and screen composer spanned decades and included such credits as Shine, The Lego Movie, Sliding Doors, Crackers, The Craic, Japanese Story, Australia, The Water Diviner and James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge. A fruitful collaboration with producer Jonathan M Shiff led to no less than 10 television series including H2O: Just Add Water, Mako Mermaids, The Elephant Princess and Lightning Point. Most recently he composed the score for the feature film The BBQ and for the upcoming children's television series The Bureau of Magical Things. With 13 AFI/AACTA and APRA Screen Music Award nominations or wins to his credit he was a composer with immense talent and heart who was always generous with his time with emerging screen composers. We have already heard from many of you who are devastated at his passing.
Ricky, you were a much loved friend and colleague and you will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with your family.
