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.
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!
