I’ve recently completed the score for a wonderful new documentary by Jeanie Finlay, who I worked with on her film Seahorse.
It was such a treat to record the soundtrack with such wonderful musicians — strings, piano, clarinets and flute, joining earlier recordings of guitar and voice, also to work with the brilliant score engineer Olga Fitzroy.
Here we all are, Jeanie too, at RAK Studios following the first session of 10 strings. More news to come of this film and soundtrack!
It was lovely to be included in Mark Kermode’s ‘highlights of the year’ Scala Radio show for International Women’s Day, alongside a great bunch of composers, with a cue from the documentary feature March for Dignity.
Selected cues from my score to March for Dignity, the feature documentary by John Eames, is available now to download or stream. Thanks to musicians Richard Curran, Leo Sutherfield and Sam Ewens and to score mixing and mastering Rich Aitken.
It was lovely to have another piece of my music played on Radio 3 Night Tracks the other evening – Tracing a Line from Cosima Spender’s documentary Phyllida. The show is available on BBC Sounds for a month and presenter Hannah Peel has also included the track in a Spotify playlist from the show. Tracing a Line features electronics, violin and prepared piano.
