Peter is a really talented composer and a total pleasure to work with. He nailed the music score for 'Strike' time and time again..A real gent and definitely part of the 'GiggleFish' team!

EMU RUNNER has called upon the talents of many people throughout
its realisation and Peter Michael Davison is one such talent that I have
had the pleasure to work with. Peter’s classical music background
provides a strong foundation to his work, but in equal measure he is
open to experimentation, resulting in bold and distinct choices. His
contribution to the EMU RUNNER score is a perfect response to the
story’s central themes, characters and landscape. His music has a deep
emotional resonance that endures. Peter embraces the collaborative
process and brings a great energy to his work, while also being mindful
of the time pressures and deadlines involved. I would highly recommend
Peter and look forward to working with him again.

Peter is a truly gifted arranger who writes with imagination and flair, framing the voice beautifully and with tremendous sensitivity. His cello quartet arrangements for me have been sublime.

I’ve been working with Pete for a few years now and his work as a copyist, orchestrator and conductor has been nothing but stellar.
Pete always manages to get a quick turnaround on preparing the parts, offering useful advice on how to get the most out of the instruments and musicians, and making suggestions on orchestration and arrangement to get it to sound as great as possible.
I’ve also been fortunate enough to have him conduct on my sessions, in which he’s kept the sessions moving at a good pace whilst getting excellent and heartfelt performances from the players. I have no doubt his own skills and knowledge as a talented composer contribute to understanding the needs of whomever he is working with, and I look forward to us working together again on future sessions!

The Man Who Sold the World is a highlight of the session
The Man Who Sold The World, which comes to life here as a soaring tango

Pete Davison's arrangement of ‘The Man Who Sold The World' transforms the Bowie song into a lost aria from Carmen.
'The Man Who Sold The World,' a humorous touch of cabaret that evokes thoughts of darkly lit burlesque stages.
Bring(s) a sense of allure and seduction to the music
ALL ABOUT JAZZ
With Peter you don't get 'just' a world class musician, you also get a conductor, an arranger, an educator and encourager, and a man for whom limitations simply don't exist.
What ever the project, Peter gives it 110% and makes magic happen
