, originally from Devon, is a film and TV composer. Apart from writing music for Imperial War Museum iconic film The Battle of the Somme, she has scored Paul Andrew Williams' critically acclaimed features including London to Brighton (BAFTA nominated) and Song For Marion. Laura has also composed for early silent movies commissioned by the British Film Institute.
Originally, Rossi didn't know she wanted to write film music. Entering Liverpool University, she was set on taking a new course that included "a bit of everything". At the time, Laura played bass guitar, violin, and piano, and enjoyed classical, jazz, and pop, so this seemed like her ideal degree. When she got there, however, the course had changed and focused on essay writing, so she changed to the classical degree. "I never would have chosen that, but because the other course had changed to writing essays, I ended up switching to this very classical degree," she explains. Alongside, the musician played in bands, still managing to tailor her education to suit what she wanted to do.
