Thomas E Rouch


Thomas E Rouch’s work as a screen composer is united by his vision to connect people and tell stories through the power of music and sound.  His work spans multiple genres and formats including feature film, television drama, feature documentary and television factual.


Thomas’ film scores include The Will To Fly (Nominated for an APRA/AGSC Screen Music Award), The Reckoning (Winner of The British Independent Film Award for Best Score) and the Amazon Sci Fi thriller hit The Gateway (Winner Best Film Austin Revolution Film Festival).


Thomas has also enjoyed fruitful collaborations with a variety of great composers such as Cornel Wilczek on the AACTA award winning documentary The Australian Dream and ABC TV’s Stateless, as well as with Brett Aplin and the late Ricky Edwards on The Bureau of Magical Things.


Currently Thomas is working alongside Cornel on the score to Australia's first Netflix Original Limited Series Clickbait.

AGSC Board Statement

Throughout my composing career I have benefitted greatly from being connected to the broader community of screen composers. With this in mind I have enjoyed being able to contribute where I can. I have delivered workshops on the business of screen music for Melbourne University and the AGSC, mentored younger composers and judged various categories of the Screen Music awards and the AACTA awards.


Since joining the board of the AGSC in March 2019 my main areas of focus have been:

  • Developing a long-term strategic direction 

  • Researching and providing guidance on options for a new website platform that will streamline management of membership, events, composer resources and members directory

  • Participating in the Awards Sub-Committee which revised the Screen Awards Judging Guidelines


Continuing on in 2021 I will work as part of the Website working group to finalise the website brief and oversee its development to ensure the key goals for the platform are achieved.
