Up All Night

I’m delighted to have co-composed the score for “Up All Night”, a spin off from the popular long running CBBC series Friday Download, directed by John Henderson (The Borrowers, Spitting Image, Shameless).

The movie features David Mitchell, Kevin Eldon (Alan Partridge, Brass Eye, Big Train) and Tyger Drew Honey (Outnumbered), as well as past and present FDM presenters.

There are also cameos from pop band The Vamps and Britain’s Got Talent stars Bars and Melody.

I’ve co-composed the score with my good friends Banks & Wag (www.banksandwag.com).

Up All Night will be hitting cinemas nationwide this summer.

Microsoft – “Secrets and Treasure”

I recently had the privilege of composing the soundtrack for Microsoft & Mediatonic’s X-Box Live game “Secrets and Treasure: The Lost Cities”.

“Battle your way through exotic locations and fiendish puzzles to discover treasure beyond your wildest imaginings. Uncover the secrets of the ancient world… and find out what really happened to legendary explorer Professor Flintlock!”

Here’s the teaser trailer which uses my title music:

“Sherlock” – C-12 Dance Theatre

Following on from the great experience I had working on “Shhh!” with C-12 last year, they’ve  kindly invited me back to work on the R&D stage of a immersive dance-theatre production of “Sherlock”. We’ll be producing a 10-15 minute mini-show, hopefully as a prelude to creating the full show further down the line.

We had our first meeting today – Adam and Annie have assembled a top-notch creative team and already have lots of great ideas and I can’t wait to get started!

Best Music Award – Adventure Gamers Awards 2014

I’m very proud to announce that the late Simon D’Souza and myself have won won Best Music in the Adventure Gamers 2014 awards for our score to The Journey Down 2!

Simon wrote most of the score before he become too ill to finish it, so I’m so glad his music is getting the recognition it deserves and I’m proud to be a part of it. I’m excited to be starting work on TJD3 in the next few weeks, and I’ll endeavour to keep this blog updated with progress.

Hungarian Studio Orchestra recording sessions.

I’ve been lucky enough to record live strings and brass with the fantastic Hungarian Studio Orchestra in Budapest several times recently.

They’re a great group and a joy to work with – highly recommended for anyone doing orchestral recording.

This week I did my first session via Skype – it’s not as exciting as flying out in person but on the flip side it does mean you’re allowed to wear your slippers for the session. Swings and roundabouts….
