Composer, director, producer

b. 1994


William K.Z. Hearne is an award-winning composer based in the Manchester, UK.

Hearne prides himself on his pragmatism, turning his interest in cross-collaborative arts into multi award-winning scores for the ‘MSA film festival’ in collaboration with Crossbar Productions, two operas and an on-going relationship with Animikii Theatre and Matrafisc Dance.

His flexible and hardworking attitude has seen a wide variety of collaborations blossom and continues to grow into a healthy output of work across music, theatre dance and film.

Improvisation and free-scoring have become a core feature in Hearne's music and 2017 has seen this explored in commissions for the RNCM, VideoJam, The British Library, COMA as well as performances from leading performers such a James Gouley.

Hearne currently makes music with his world music ensemble Bethlehem Casuals and has produced multiple albums with the alternative latin-rock band
