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.

New Ad Spot – Green Giant

Here’s a new ad I composed music for. I worked with The Collaborators in Bristol and A Large Evil Corporation (I love saying that name).
This is the French version, UK version will be on air soon.

Broadway Project Music Angelina Jolie’s new film; “In The Land Of Blood And Honey” Trailer

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.


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;

That is all.

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;

New Broadway Project Ad Spot – Max Factor (Part 1)

I have written some music for a new Max Factor Ad Campaign. Featuring Cecilia Stalin on vocals and Andy Dragazis on guitars.

The ad should be going on air across Europe anytime now. This ad will be followed by another one I’ve written and produced with the same team.

New tracks for a secret project

Here’s a couple of new tracks from a series of demo’s I’ve put together with Paul Noble for another secret project (this all sounds very covert, doesn’t it, its only so I don’t compromise projects in production).

I am working with Paul on more mainstream modern cinematic music, which is something I have been  wanting to develop for a while. Myself and Paul worked together on “Identity of the Soul”, which you can see on the Films page.

New track and EP on the way – Lost

Here’s a track  (its a demo really, I might add vocals) of a track I’ve done recently called “Lost”. It’s one of a batch of new tunes that I’m working on in my spare time  that I’m really  excited about. This spare time is going to be reduced considerably very soon after the birth of my second child, but its on its way, I promise.

New Broadway Project track – New film – More to come

It’s for a film being shot now. I wrote it based on what I read from the script.
Lovingly called it “In the Hole”. Might not end up in the film, but here you are anyway.

Broadway Project reunites with Richard Palmer


For old school fans of my earlier albums here’s a rare collaboration with my old vocalist and mate Richard Palmer. I basically rinsed one of his lovely new songs and ended up with this. The vibe went straight back to 2003 but without the samples! It’s a slow burner. kind of Tindersticks meets Ennio Morricone (I wish).

More (new) vocal collaborations on the way.

New Broadway Project Ad Spot; Mobily


Here’s another new ad spot with music composed by Broadway Project for Saudi brand Mobily. It’s all about HRH the Prince-whatsisname.

Here’s a version without the Arabic voice over or FX, so you can hear a proper burst of the original track.Full ad is on my Music for Ads page.
