Her work for Film, Television, and Video Games includes Sicario: Day of the Soldado, Mary Magdalena, Electronic Arts’ Battlefield 2042 (the newest entry in the massively successful Battlefield franchise), the Warner Brothers Film Joker (Grammy, Academy Award, SCL Award, Golden Globe, BAFTA), and the HBO series Chernobyl (Grammy, Emmy, SCL Award, BAFTA, WSA Television Composer of the Year). 

Sam Slater is a two-time Grammy Award-winning composer, sound designer, and music producer who is known for his roles as both Score Producer and Musical Sound Designer for Joker and Chernobyl.

He also composed the score for I Am Not A Monster, a BBC / PBS Podcast telling the story of an American mother who brought her son to live in war-torn Syria. The podcast won several awards and was noted for its complex and weighty sound world. In 2021, he co-composed his first video game score with Hildur Gudnadóttir, Battlefield 2042, the newest entry in Electronic Arts’ massively successful Battlefield franchise.
