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”.

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.

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.

I’ve recently composed the music for this brilliant 2 min commercial for 4Creative’s latest campaign Stand Up For Cancer, a partnership between Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK. It is being rolled out to cinemas nationwide this weekend and broadcast across more than one hundred commercial channels on Sunday night (7th Sept)… and subsequently for the next month working up to a dedicated night on Channel 4 in October.
Directed by Oscar nominated Nexus directors Adam Foulkes and Alan Smith, I worked alongside music production company SIREN on the epic score featuring orchestra and dark male voice choir. Epic.
