Charlie Armour (born 1982) is a British film composer. He was born with a rare form of Leukodystrophy, which limits use of his legs and hands. Despite this hurdle, Charlie was able to find his true passion – the love of music. At a young age he composed his first piece “Twin Worlds” which was featured on John Peel’s popular radio show, where it received high praise.
In 2003 Charlie received a Degree in music technology from Thames Valley University in Ealing. While a student, he formed the group “Nuvibes.com”. He spent much of his time experimenting with new sounds and producing albums for independent artists and creating various compilations, including “bag of sand vol.1”. Following graduation, Charlie was hired at “no.18 Studios – professional audio and media” in Ealing.
In 2006, Canadian documentary filmmaker Jordan Clark of High Banks Entertainment Ltd. was searching for a unique sound to include in his film “Aswang: A Journey into Myth” –a DocuMovie regarding Filipino folklore. The relationship between image and sound worked so perfectly that the two collaborated again in 2009 on “The Aswang Phenomenon”. Nelson D.
