I’ve recently been working again with long term collaborator director Sam Yates on radio drama Ecco playing on BBC Radio 4 Monday 6th March 2017. A science fiction radio drama staring Haley Atwell and written by Chris Harrald, it tells the story of a neuroscientist who triggers a new digital consciousness into being..
Below is a taster of my music score..
The drama will be available on the BBC’s iPlayer after broadcast here.

Something else that has kept me busy over the last few months has been a magical film by writer/director Ben Ockrent called Edmund The Magnificent. Funded through the emerging talent fund with Creative England and the BFI, and produced by Haus Films, it tells the story of a pig farmer (David Bradley) down on his luck and his journey to get back on top (wonderfully narrated by Ian McKellen). One of the most funny and brilliant short films I’ve ever seen let alone had the privilege to work on… with the whole piece musically scored throughout telling every twist of the journey…
I’ll be putting up my score to the film very shortly.. and hopefully a link to watch the film.. so watch this space.

I’m presently composing music for short film The Hope Rooms directed by long term theatre collaborator Sam Yates, staring Andrew Scott (Spectre) and Ciaran Hinds (There Will Be Blood). Written by the brilliant David Watson, the short is being produced by Bill Kenwright Films and tells the story of a father and son who meet up after 15 years to heal old wounds.
It’s a beautiful film and will be released in 2016… along with the soundtrack.
