I have several tracks on the newly released Cinematic Choir albums, produced by Cavendish Music. This was my first time writing production music, and it was such a great project to work on – I was really given free creative reign!
The music was recorded by the Latvian Radio Choir in Riga (I was on my composing residency at the Britten Foundation so listened in remotely) and by Shards in London.
The release consists of three albums — Odyssey, Rituals and First Contact. For the latter I composed Gold on the Horizon and Floating Hordes, where I layered various phrases and motifs, sometimes digitally manipulated, to create eerie, otherworldly textures and atmosphere.
I was thrilled to have a couple of cues from my music to Seahorse played on the Mark Kermode show last Saturday, 7th September. He played and discussed A Positive Result and The Long Wait, which were written for two separate scenes dealing with Freddy’s pregnancy tests. Mark Kermode hosts a fantastic show on Scala Radio, all on film music, and I made some great new discoveries.
The show is available to listen online for a few more days here and my cues are about 12 minutes in, although I have to say I was pretty chuffed to hear at the start of the programme “I’ll be playing music from Bernard Hermann…Mica Levi and Tara Creme”
