composer, arranger, performer


I have worked with Andrew on a number of narrative and corporate film projects... His unique talent never fails to move me, he has the ability to cross into all genres with equal effect. He … can respond to a brief while still remaining adaptable
— Bruce Grantford (Apricot Productions)
Sits comfortably between jazz and classical contemporary
— Steve Moffat (Sydney Daily Telegraph)
Andrew’s music is idiomatic, imaginative and challenging, and the rhythmic aspect is ingenious and effective
— Professor Stephen Ingham (University of Wollongong)
Andrew Batterham’s [music] maintains accessibility [and] works hard to convey its cross-fusion statements, employing a muted version of techno and dance music rather than belabouring the audience with mindless repetition... The piece reminded me overwhelmingly of film music, particularly in its climatic stages and specifically of Ennio Morricone
— Clive O'Connell (The Age, Melbourne)
Batterham’s buoyant ‘How to Win the Rat Race’ rings down the curtain
— Jack Bowers (All About
Andrew combines a highly developed musical imagination with sure technical skills. He understands textual matters and has an unusual ability to match his work to the ability of the performers for whom he is writing
— Douglas Lawrence OAM (Director of Music, Scots' Church Melbourne)
Thank you for the marvellous arrangements you wrote, they worked fantastically well. Your orchestrations were perfectly tailored for our forces - playable and singable but with challenges
— Paul Jones (Balwyn High School)
