BBC One comedy STAGED coming to screens in June starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen

Very happy to announce I've been composing music for a brilliant new six part comedy called "Staged" staring David Tennant, Michael Sheen (and some special guests yet to be announced). Directed by Simon Evans - Simon and I were due to be opening a theatre production in Chichester just before lockdown - so he wrote this rather wonderful comedy (about a play cancelled by Covid-19) when it was cancelled (all coming together from conception to near completion in just over a month). The score is written for bass clarinet ensemble and Calor Gas bottle (one of my new favourite percussion......

“A Life Lived” from The Windermere Children (live piano version)

I've recently recorded this live piano version of "A Life Lived" from The Windermere Children in my studio. Whilst the production was still filming, I was so moved after reading the script for the first time - so sat at the piano and tried to put down some of the emotions that came out; thinking about how those children must have felt arriving in Windermere after being freed from Auschwitz and Theresienstadt weeks before. It's not often that a script can move you to tears like that! A shortened version appears in the end credits of the film, but the......
