Broadway Project Music from “Point Zero”

Here is the music I’ve written from the French post-nuke shortfilm “Point Zero” with Alaa Safi, written & directed by Arthur Cauras, produced by Forge. Currently in Post Production Nov 12.

Hopefully I should have previews of the finished article in the new year. Trailer below.

Broadway Project sister album “Film Works Vol 1″ released

My new album “Film Works Vol 1″ was released digitally on Monday. Its a sister album to “The City Breathes” and focuses, as you might expect from the title, on work I’ve done for film. Mostly over the past two years, over a number of film and TV projects.

Film Works Vol. 1 on Bleep.com

Film Works Vol. 1 on iTunes

I decided to release it alongside the main album as they both have a lot of similarities with the former album focusing on more beat-based arrangements. “Film Works” showcases more classic cinematic stylings as well as a number of more improvised electro-acoustic works.

I have a number of EP’s featuring new tracks a beat-based remixes coming out soon.

In the meantime here’s and nice fairly accurate review from Bleep.com
“Dan Berridge follows up his last double-part album under his Broadway Project alias, ‘The City Breathes’, with ‘Film Works Volume 1′, an epic 34-track selection of some of Berridge’s best and most important compositions made for celluloid. With a career heavily focused on film scores, cinematic atmosphere is unneringly apparent – this is crystalline widescreen material laced with incredible depth and icy layers of atmosphere.”

“The City Breathes” received a nice bit of support from Spotify staying on the recommended list for two weeks, see nerdy picture (which also shows I like Kraftwerk and I need a Java update);


New Broadway Project Album Out Now

I am very proud to announce that my 5th album proper is out now on all digital formats to buy. Entitled “The City Breathes”, it showcases the more urban, beat side to my music and its probably the best thing I’ve done so far.

BLEEP.

You can also get FLACS of all my work here, which I would recommend.

With an almost pathological lack of commercial sense we (that is ODS Recordings) are also releasing a sister album called “Film Works Vol 1″ very shortly.

Fireflies Trailer Broadway Project Score

I thought I should post the trailer to a short film a composed some music for late last year. Called FIREFLIES its a 20-min drama written and directed by Anastasia Kirillova. (35mm. Production company: Bonnie Parker in association with Gorgeous Enterprises – London, UK). I have mentioned this before, but its nice to see a full length finished trailer before it Wows at the festivals!

“Fireflies” trailer from Anastasia Kirillova on Vimeo.

Synopsis: A modern day rites of passage tale of Agnes, a 12 year-old girl, whose spontaneous journey into the woods one evening, leads her to discover the uncertain world of adolescent relationships, unravelling in the midst of nocturnal nature, in all it’s magical ambiguity. Following up on a longed for invitation by Victor, the object of her innocent desire, she is forced to make the small yet unforgettable steps towards intimacy and womanhood.

Broadway Project New Ad for “Cocaine Unwrapped” Documentary Campaign

I’ve just finished working on some music for the Anti-Cocaine charity One Line = One Life through Stink.

Its a Leo Burnett campaign supporting the ‘Cocaine Unwrapped’ documentary to raise awareness towards the devastating suffering in South America caused by the UK consumption of cocaine.

The piece is called “Road Trip” written with my good friend Matthew Bourne.

Top Boy Music BAFTA

A belated bit of news. Top Boy won best original soundtrack.

Now officially that is Brian Eno and deservedly well done to him, but I was Additional Composer on the series and wrote 10 Original pieces for the series, so I guess that is well done me too!

The City Breathes I and II

So, as well as all the other music I do, I work hard on trying to output as much of my own material as I can. Lets be honest, that’s why I’m in it in the first place.

Here is a double album entitled The City Breathes which will be released (one way or another) this year. Part I is the full album proper and Part II is the accompanying minimalistic, darker, sister album.

All written in 2011.

A piece of music of mine called “There’s No-one in the Place”, which I wrote with Matthew Bourne for the film “Flickan” has been used on the trailer for the new Angelina Jolie film “In The Land Of Blood And Honey”.

Fireflies – new Broadway Project score.

I’ve just finished working on a score for a 20minute film by Anastasia Kirillova. I won’t say what its about, but it very beautiful. I’ll post more info when its screened next year. Here’s a little preview clip and a couple of cues from the film.

Broadway Project Music from “TopBoy”

I have written and adapted 10 tracks for the new C4 series “TopBoy”. The tracks sit alongside some amazing music by Brian Eno and others. This looks like a really interesting series and definitely one to watch.

A busy summer. I have also completed a soundtrack to a film and a drama for BBC. More info to come

Broadway Project New Ad Spot for Volvo

Here’s some music I have written for a Volvo television advert called “Command” (needs to be said in a very manly way). It sounds like Werner Herzog doing the voice over, but I don’t think it is.

Broadway Project Electro-acoustic Soundscape Demos

Here’s a few soundscapes that I’ve been working on with Liz Purnell for a TV project.

I was trying to get a vibe that sits on the line between electronic and organic sounds.

Ghost Hunters Trailer – Broadway Project Music

I’ve just done some music for a trailer of the new series of a US program called Ghost Hunters, for Sci-Fi channel.
They were after a textural mood piece, not being too obviously scary. I did the sound design too.
A lot of granular synthesis in this baby!

Here’s my preferred edit of the music without fx

Identity of the Soul Original Soundtrack

In the winter of 2008 I wrote a soundtrack with Paul Noble
to the film or cinematic performance, “Identity of the Soul”.
Despite it being a magnificent, 5-cinema screen production (or perhaps because of this fact and the inherent difficulties of staging such an event), Identity of the Soul has not received many viewings or performances.

This is a shame, its mind blowing to watch.

I’ve recently been getting a good few emails from people inquiring about the music and whether it will be released. It is frustrating for Paul and me having music that you are proud of sitting there gathering dust, so here it is on Soundcloud in its non-5.1 format.

Conviction Film – new Broadway Project score.

Hi

Here’s a news article about a film called “Conviction”, a film I scored last year, but have not been able to go public about. I’m still not allowed to post a clip due to various reasons, but there is a clip at the bottom of this article HERE.

The film starring Adam Deacon, (Adulthood, Kidulthood and Shank) tells the powerful story of Andrew (Isa) Ibrahim who in April 2008 was convicted of terrorist offences including possession of an explosive substance, intent to commit terrorism and possession of articles for terrorist purposes.

Here’s a set of music from the film;

Film Music Round Up

Here’s a round up of some of the more wide screen film music I was working on during October last year. Some of these are for an in production American project and hilariously, one is a very rushed pitch for the new Sherlock Holmes movie (unbelievably, I don’t think I got  the gig, but Hanz Zimmer was bricking it).

The ace Billy Fuller from Beak> was playing bass for me. Hope to work with him a lot in the future.

There was another great film called Conviction that I worked on last year, but for various reasons I’m not allowed to post a clip of that yet. Hopefully these will pan out into projects in this new year.

In the meantime, I’m working with Universal on a library music project that I’m very excited about. More of that soon.

Here’s those demos;
