“Radio Jones And His Robot Dad” animated app by Oscar nominated Smith & Foulkes

I had immense pleasure writing the score for Smith & Foulkes’ animated app Radio Jones and his Robot Dad. All created from live instruments dotting around my studio, including a piano which hadn’t been tuned for a decade that had just been delivered! Thanks to the brilliant Siren Music and Nexus Productions… this is amongst many award winning animated collaborations with this brilliant team including BBC One Christmas’ “Spout Boy”, The Grand National’s “The Outsider” and Channel 4’s “Stand Up To Cancer”.

Second collaboration with Grammy winning Clean Bandit for M&S

Very pleased to have collaborated again with Grammy winning Clean Bandit for the latest M&S Food Christmas films. Recorded with the London Metropolitan Orchestra at Mark Knopfler’s British Grove Studio the track is an orchestral remix of their number one song Rather Be. Made with agency RKCH/Y&R who I’ve collaborated with on numerous projects in the past including BBC ONE Christmas “Sprout Boy” films in 2015.

BBC One Christmas

Very happy to announce I’ve composed the orchestral score for BBC One’s Christmas film and programme idents which will be shown all over Christmas 2015. My fifth collaboration with the brilliant Oscar nominated directing duo of Smith & Foulkes and Nexus Productions, the music was produced with SIREN and the agency was RKCR/Y&R.

The music was recorded by the London Metropolitan Orchestra in Abbey Road conducted by Andy Brown, engineered and mixed by Joe Rubel.

Collaboration with Grammy winning Clean Bandit

I’ve recently been working with Grammy winning Clean Bandit on a new orchestral arrangement of their song Rather Be. Recorded at British Grove Studio with the London Metropolitan Orchestra, the piece is being used by Marks & Spencer for their Christmas advertising campaign, with the full three minute version being released at some point in the future. I worked with the brilliant Native Music for RKCR/Y&R.

“The Messenger” for Wieden + Kennedy

Continuing a brilliantly creative relationship with ad agency Wieden + Kennedy (having previously contributed music to award winning campaigns including Lurpak, Tesco Christmas and most recently Finish) I’ve just completed work on composing music for a new film for Arla Skyr called “The Messenger”. Beautifully shot by Dougal Wilson through Blink, the short was filmed in Iceland and tells the story of a young messenger..

“Dishes” with award winning directing collective Megaforce

I’ve just written the music to a dishwasher tablets ad. Although this one was rather fun… for the brilliantly creative folks at Wieden + Kennedy, directed by the wonderful collective of Megaforce, and music produced along with the fab SIREN, this is a Finish ad like no other.. quirky little instruments recorded at my studio, with the small orchestral elements recorded at Abbey Road with the London Metropolitan Orchestra.
