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......

BBC “Don’t Quit” narrated by Idris Elba

I was honoured to be asked to compose the music for this beautiful 90 second film made by the BBC in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hollow in a World Too Full / Seven Point Zero (redux)

I've been lucky to have worked with the brilliant 2Faced Dance company for almost ten years; last month they embarked on a worldwide tour of Everything (But The Girl) - a triple bill of pieces of which I scored two of - Hollow in a World Too Full and Seven Point Zero. Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the tour has been postponed and the dance company left unable to tour or earn an income. They work with a number of schools and community classes nationally all of which have had to be cancelled for the foreseeable future. In light of this......

“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......
