Very happy that Cornelius directed by Sam Yates has opened at 59e59 Theater in New York to brilliant reviews, including a glowing article by Ben Brantley in the New York Times (read the article here). I was the composer on the project that transfered from London’s Finborough Theatre after a sell out run last year. The production is showing in New York until the end of June 2013.
I’m presently in rehearsals for The Cripple of Inishmaan with director Michael Grandage and writer Martin McDonagh, with Daniel Radcliffe playing the role of Billy. I’m composer and sound designer for the project opening in June 2013 at the Noel Coward Theatre in London’s West End as part of the first season from the Michael Grandage Company - which also includes performances by Judy Dench, Jude Law and Ben Whishaw.

I’m presently composing music for three plays at Shakespeare’s Globe; Harry the Sixth; The Houses of York and Lancaster; The True Tragedy of the Duke of York – better known as Shakespeare’s Henry VI Parts I, II, and III. Directed by Nick Bagnall (who I previously collaborated on for Betrayal at the Crucible with John Simm) the production will also tour the UK as well as the famous battlegrounds depicted in the plays; Towton, St Albans, Barnet and Tewkesbury.

A busy time here heading into Spring/Summer 2013. Privileged to be working with Michael Grandage during his first west end residency at the Noel Coward for The Cripple of Inishmaan, followed soon after by three stunning plays at Shakespeare’s Globe directed by the lovely Nick Bagnall, Henry VI parts I, II and III which will also tour this summer. Over in New York I’ll be opening Cornelius at 59e59 directed by Sam Yates, and for the Manchester International Festival I’m working alongside sound designer Peter Rice for The Masque of Anarchy directed by Sarah Frankcom.
Out of the theatre I’m also excited to soon be working on another feature film project (after the BAFTA success earlier this year for McCullin) as well as working on an album project of my own music. More details to come about those later in the year…
I’ve just completed scoring the new TV campaign for Waitrose produced by London agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH). “The Story of the Farmer and the Precious Egg” starts broadcasts from today (17th April). It’s a lovely short film directed by the talented duo Thirtytwo at Pulse Films.
Very pleased that Macbeth has been nominated for the 2013 Olivier awards for Best Revival and Best Actor for James McAvoy. I was composer and sound designer on the production, which is still running at Trafalgar Studio 1 until the end of April directed by Jamie Lloyd.
