Bringing a refreshing sonic architecture in a diverse body of work spanning across film, television, and commercial work, Belgian-born composer Peter Baert’s talents also encompass orchestration, electronic music, and music production.


After creating a 30-minute-long demo for Golden Globe-nominated David Oyelowo years previously, Baert scored in 2020 the Selma actor’s directorial debut feature The Water Man, co-produced by Oprah Winfrey. Oyelowo says, “Music and sound in film has always been important to me, which is why I consider myself lucky to have met composer Peter Baert when I did. ” The score was orchestrated by Matt Dunkley and recorded in a special set up within Galaxy Studios in Belgium during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Water Man is available on Netflix.
Baert recently scored Lost Luggage, a Belgian primetime fictional series based on the 2016 Brussels bombings.


In 2018, he scored the Ensor Award-winning documentary exposé Breathless about the hazardous but surprisingly still booming asbestos industry, as well as the 2017 Belgian film Façades, directed by Kaat Beels & Nathalie Basteyns, which was pre-selected for the European Composer Awards and was also nominated for an Ensor Award.


Peter Baert is represented by Andrew Zack at The Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency.


In 2006, Baert co-founded Raygun – a commercial sound studio in Brussels working in advertising, television, and film; which he owns and runs together with his wife Liesbeth.


He is also the proud father of three daughters.
