Pete M. Wyer is a UK-based composer. He has created works for the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Opera House, Juilliard Orchestra and many others as well as producing and arranging numerous pop songs and writing scores for TV drama and documentaries, such as BBC television's ‘Roman Mysteries'.

He is the author and creator of a number of internationally touring music-theater works that include Adam's Apple (2004 UK, USA), Johnny's Midnight Goggles (2007 – 10 UK, USA, India, Eire) and Finkelstein's Castle (2009 – 10 UK, USA, India). In 2012 he was commissioned to write the closing song for the Olympic Torch ceremony in Coventry, performed by a number of celebrities to an audience of 20,000.

He is known for innovative practice, including the creation of ‘time-structured mapping,' a system that has been used for combining seemingly disparate musical forces, such as with the hour-long ‘Insomnia Poems' for BBC Radio 3, which was selected for ‘Best of 2009' by BBC Radio 3.

He is the recipient of five international fellowships and a ‘Best Composer' award at London Fringe Report Awards, 2011. A book of his poetry, The Dance Around the Fire, was published by Alternating Current Press in 2013.
