Benjamin Rimmer (b. 1993) is a composer based in London who’s distinctive means of expression and communication through his music are increasingly resonating across the contemporary landscape.


He has been commissioned by organisations such as the Royal Philharmonic Society, Classic FM, and Ballett Im Revier Gelsenkirchen with choreographer Bridget Breiner. His work has been performed and recorded by renowned ensembles including the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the Elias Quartet, and instrumentalists such the internationally acclaimed harpist Eleanor Turner.

Among his significant works is his ballet score for Sandmann, commissioned by Oper Graz and choreographed by Andreas Heise. This production, noted for its intricate musical textures and emotional depth, was nominated for the Austrian Music Theatre Prize in 2020 in the category of Best Total Ballet Production. Critic Eveline Koberg praised the score as "a finely tuned network of thoughts and feelings that enhanced and supported the expression of the production; it is equally melodic and dreamily romantic as well as it is hard, alienating, and even frightening through soundscapes of unfamiliar tone sequences."

In 2023, Benjamin collaborated with composer Joel Cadbury, creating string arrangements for Cadbury’s electronic score for the Dark Crystal ballet at the Royal Opera House. Choreographed by Wayne McGregor, the ballet premiered on May 13th 2023 to critical acclaim.


Earlier in his career, Benjamin was the youngest composer shortlisted for the Britten Sinfonia's OPUS 2015 award. The following year, he was honoured as one of the ten winning composers in the Oticons International Film Music Competition. In 2019 (under a pseudonym) Benjamin was nominated for two Production Music Awards.


Benjamin studied composition at the Guildhall school of Music & Drama, graduating in 2016.
