It has been a busy start to 2017… the first project of which to see the light of day is my score to Nureyev which was recently recorded by the London Metropolitan Orchestra under the baton of Andy Brown at Abbey Road Studio 1 (with choir conducted by Nigel Short). Directed by Jacqui Morris (with whom I previously scored the multi BAFTA nominated McCullin and the multi award winning Attacking The Devil); it is an incredibly beautiful documentary of the life of ballet dancer Rudolph Nureyev, told solely through never before seen archive and newly commissioned choreography.
I’ll be releasing an accompanying album closer to the theatrical release, and perhaps a couple of teasers before that…
Here’s a snap from the session (along with engineer/mixer Joe Rubel, left).

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.
