Last day of the sound mix at the fantastic Twickenham studios last week, and the film is all finished. Here I am with the wonderful Francesco Iannuzzelli (oud) and Omar Saad (viola) at Crypt studios recording the music

I really enjoyed working on this beautiful with director Ashtar Al Khirsan, editor Tracey Granger and sound mixer Doug Woodward. Looking forward to seeing it on the big screen!

Boiler House Singers concert – to include my choral composition ‘Star’.

Boiler House Singers winter concert
Boiler House Singers

The choir I run, The Boiler House Singers, will be performing our winter concert on 3rd December at 5pm at the lovely Prince pub in Stoke Newington, London N16.

Featuring guest musicians, Christmas cheer and the legendary audience singalong, this is one not to be missed!

We will be performing some of the repertoire we’ve learned this year, plus some Christmas numbers. There will also be a shortened version of my choir composition ‘Star’ – a world premiere in fact!

Tara Creme – New pieces for prepared piano

New pieces for prepared piano

 

 

I’ve just spent a great few days in the Sussex countryside, composing some short pieces for prepared piano.

Screws and bolts inserted into the strings create bell-like sounds, accentuating the piano’s harmonics, and blue tack deadens the tone, making for a very percussive sound.

There was no wifi or mobile signal which was very refreshing and I got lots of work done! I’ll be back next weekend to complete the set of short pieces.

 

Tunnels

‘Tunnels’ to feature in the BBC drama ‘Our Girl’

Great news that my track Tunnels will be used in a scene in BBC’s Our Girl. The third series starts on October 10th and my music will be in episode 2. Looking forward to watching!
