Artemis Media Music has created original music for a wealth of situations, from TV and cinema advertising (clients include WCRS, Saatchi, Sky, BBH, Mother) to drama (BBC, LWT, Granada, Sky) and Documentaries (BBC TV, Performance Films, Transworld Sport). Artemis has scored numerous films and has written music for live events (the Commonwealth Games) as well as original works for stage and feature film.

Whether you need an orchestral film score, or a jazz band; an electronic score or sound design, Artemis has a wealth of experience and creativity.


Artemis’ experienced in-house music producers who have created recordings for hundreds of applications, working with a team of engineers, technicians and studios to ensure that the recording and production of their music meets the most exacting standards.

As well as Media Music production, Artemis has also created scores of recordings for classical artists including Howard Shelley, Sir Simon Rattle, Melvyn Tan, English Chamber Orchestra, Noriko Ogawa and English National Opera.


Artemis has a successful track record in music search, copyright clearance and rights management, working with major clients such as Warner Bros., BBC TV, Sky TV and LWT/Granada.

Whether sourcing original 1950’s dance band music or creating ‘soundalikes’ that do not infringe copyright; whether sourcing master rights or clearing copyrights, Artemis has the expertise to deliver.


Copyright is a potential minefield. We estimate we have saved our clients in excess of £1 million since we were incorporated. Artemis has professional links to all the major publishers, record labels and rights holders, from Warner Bros to the BBC, from Sony to Universal. One carefully targeted phone call or email from us could save an advertising agency days of going around the houses.

Our music can be heard in a wide variety of commercial settings – from children’s TV (Brum for BBC) to TV Drama (Marple / Poirot for LWT / Granada); from advertising (Sony PlayStation 3) to film (Bill of Mortality / Saving Lives).

The Right Tools For The Right Music Every Time

Nothing here but sheer beauty.
Classic FM Magazine
A prominent feature in Mike Sheppard’s music is its strong neo-pastoral quality. Sweeping melodic shapes are underpinned by sumptuous modal harmonies which flow out of a lush lyrical bedrock.
Gramophone Magazine
Wow— your music is amazing.
