“As the showrunners of Norman Picklestripes, we give our highest recommendation to Sanj Sen as a composer for kids’ television. Sanj wrote 12 spectacular songs for our series, all of which were catchy, singable, and way more musically innovative that the usual preschool repertoire. He is a true pleasure to work with and communicating long distance was a breeze – he respected deadlines and addressed notes (usually very minimal) with a smile. He is a true find and we can’t wait to work with him again on another project.”

- Executive Producers, Norman Picklestripes (2019)
Nominated in this year’s forthcoming Irish Animation Awards for Best Music, 2019 BAFTA-nominated Sanj Sen is vastly experienced in a diverse mix of music.
From an early age he was recording and mixing music styles ranging from hip-hop to rock, often merging styles and influences to create a very personal and eclectic approach to making music.
He was signed to BMG at the age of 17 to produce dance records for the U.S. and European market.
This led to his first solo album release under the name Indian Ropeman for Skint records. Extensive touring (including a 3-week Fun Loving Criminals support stint) gave Sanj the opportunity to hone his skills as a live player as well as a studio based producer and arranger. During this time Sanj worked with such acts as The Lo-Fi Allstars, Midfield General and The Space Raiders, whilst remixing for China, Beggars Banquet, Sony, and EMI.
A natural progression into production and composition has followed, and Sanj’s recent work includes the Assassins Creed Black Flag Trailer, the BBC Commonwealth games titles, several BBC One idents, a Dr. Who cinematic trailer, and advertisements for many Brands including Disney Land Paris, Dairylea, Virgin Holidays and Liverpool Victoria.
Sanj has previously driven parents mad everywhere as the Moshi Monsters composer which has led to a Gold selling album and a full feature length movie score, MOSHI MONSTERS: THE MOVIE.
Sanj has recently scored series 3 of the much loved children’s series, DANGER MOUSE (104×11) which began airing in September 2015 in the UK and has been sold to over 100 territories so far. He’s also completed work on songs for Universal Kids’ forthcoming 52-part series NORM OF THE FOREST (52×11, 2019) and recently scored the CBBC series BEYOND BIONIC and title music for MICRONAUTS (Hasbro Studios, 2019) and BITZ & BOB (52×11, CBeebies).
His current commission is the much anticipated POWERBIRDS for Universal Kids (40×11), airing in 2020.
