Very proud to have written the theme for the BBC World Cup coverage. Based on the Russian folk song “Ochi Chernye”, I arranged a new piece for full orchestra sung by Sir John Tomlinson, and recorded at Abbey Road Studio 1 by the London Metropolitan Orchestra conducted by Andy Brown.

A making of film can be watched here.

The main promo film has had some brilliant coverage, consisting of an animation completely made up of tapestry (read about the project here). Watch the full version of the film below. I’ll be releasing a longer, five minute version of the piece in the coming weeks so watch this space!
