Tristin Norwell is a British music composer, best known for his music scores and record production.
Norwell originally trained as a classical violinist and saxophonist as a child and his father was a jazz drummer. His early career in music began by producing, mixing and arranging many records with bands and artists including David Holmes, Goya Dress, Gabrielle, Embrace, Terry DeCastro, The Crimea, Cast and Warrior Charge.
He co produced, recorded and mixed the Talvin Singh, album "O.K." which won the 1999 Mercury Music Prize. He also worked on remixes for Madonna, Talvin Singh, and Ryuichi Sakamoto amongst many others. He co-composed the music for the short film Wish 143, directed by Ian Barnes, which was nominated for the 2011 Academy Award for Live Action Short Film.
Norwell's first film score was for the 2001 film Beginner's Luck which starred Julie Delpy and Steven Berkoff. In 2003, he co-founded the London-based music house Norwell & Green. Together, he and his close friend Nick Green scored hundreds of episodes of prime time television including 55 Degrees North for BBC, Drop Dead Gorgeous for Hat Trick, and The Invisibles for Company Pictures. Their score for the Ashley Pharoah ITV series Wild at Heart was subsequently released by AWAL. They wrote further scores for the TV series Hope Springs for Shed Productions, as well as the BBC teen drama Waterloo Road.
Norwell and Green scored seven TV Films together including the 2010 BBC Christmas Special Whistle and I'll Come to You, the supernatural ghost story written by M.R. James and starring John Hurt. One of their earliest film scores was the adaptation of the biography Kenneth Williams: Fantabulosa! starring Michael Sheen. They scored Meera Syal and Abi Morgan's adaptation of Syal's novel Life Isn't All Ha Ha Hee Hee, and Recovery, featuring David Tennant's portrayal of a memory-loss victim. Together they also scored two of Frank Cottrell Boyce's television plays, God on Trial starring Stellan Skarsgard and Dominic Cooper for Hat Trick, the BBC TV film Framed (Boyce novel) starring Trevor Eve, and the BBC's Filth: The Mary Whitehouse Story featuring Julie Walters.
Norwell continues to write scores for film, television drama and documentary, including two John Hardwick feature films Svengali starring Jonny Owens and Martin Freeman and Hardwick's documentary feature "Follow The Money (Feature Documentary 2015)". Norwell also composed the music for ITV series "Trouble Abroad", the award winning  Yotam Ottolenghi's "Jerusalem On a Plate" and the Ian Barnes short film MatchHead (2013).

In October 2014, Norwell released his solo debut Mal Influence, on his Cinefonietta Label, an experimental album melding his classical influences with electronica.
