Noted composer for over 60 British and American films who scored his first movie, "The Kaleidoscope," in 1966. In addition to scoring, Myers conducted and wrote songs for these numerous film projects, many of them highlights of post-war British cinema. They include "Ulysses" (1967), Michael Powell's "Age of Consent" (1969), and most of the later films of Nicholas Roeg and Stephen Frears, including "Insignificance" (1985) and "Sammy and Rosie Get Laid" (1987). Most famous for his theme for "The Deerhunter" (1978), Myers had a tremendously productive work life that encompassed assignments ranging from the somber demands of Volker Schlondorff's "Der Fangschuss/The Coup de Grace" (1976) and Jerzy Skolimoskwi's "Moonlighting" (1982) to the lighter tones of the flushed Anglo comedy "Wish You Were Here" (1987).
