John Barry Prendergast, OBE (3 November 1933 – 30 January 2011) was an Oscar winning English film score composer. He was best known for composing 11 James Bond soundtracks and was hugely influential on the 007 series' distinctive style.

In a career spanning almost 50 years, Barry received a number of awards for his work, including five Academy Awards; two for "Born Free", and one each for "The Lion in Winter" (for which he also won a BAFTA Award), "Out of Africa" and "Dances with Wolves" (for which he also won a Grammy Award).

John Barry scored dozens of films, big and small, that called for music to express a wide variety of human emotions and dramatic situations. He composed taut, pulsing, jittery music for the espionage thrillers “The Ipcress File” (1965) and “The Quiller Memorandum” (1966), delivered a sultry sound for the noirish “Body Heat” (1981) and established an offbeat intimacy for “Midnight Cowboy” (1969), with its haunting harmonica theme.

“I like to score the inner feelings of a character — get into their shoes in an imaginative way and take the audience there and enlighten them in a poetic rather than realistic way,” he told The New York Times in 2000.
