FILM: The Conductor

The Conductor is a film by Xavier Guignard and produced by Essay Pictures, a romantic drama set in the world of classical music.

FILM: Prometheus

This is a demo title sequence from the Ridley Scott film Prometheus, for which I've composed music to evoke a big-screen "Hollywood" cinematic soundtrack, scored for a large symphony orchestra and soprano soloist. demo

FILM: Little Thief

Little Thief is a film by Xavier Guignard and produced by Essay Pictures, science fiction set in a near-future world in which men are greatly out-numbered by women.

The score makes plenty of use of a modular synthesizer, and also a choir of womens voices singing in very close harmony, resulting in a sinister feel that complements the dark story. The trailer, embedded here, uses only music from the complete film's score. commission

AD: DOLCE&GABBANA: Classic Short

Click to play

This classic D&G advert is by Giuseppe Tornatore, featuring Monica Bellucci. I have created a Sicilian-influenced score to bring out the strange textures and scents that the picture suggests. demo

AD: Giorgio Armani: Kind of Blue

Click to play

Into The Blue is a short film by Giorgio Armani, starring Kelly Brook. My score is for strings with electronic manipulation to complement the special effects in the film. demo

AD: Honda: Endless Road

Click to play

A clever visual trick for this great Honda advert: I added a kind of never-ending arpeggio (influenced by J.S. Bach) that I thought would be a perfect accompaniment to the film. demo

AD: Yoplait / Petits Filous: Milkshake Me

Click to play

A demo for a “Petits Filous” advert that uses sparse but catchy music for woodwinds (including a playful reference to Papageno's panpipe in The Magic Flute) to add to the humour and cuteness of the visuals. demo


FILM: CAT

CAT is a short, dark comedy written and directed by Lewis Burke. The brief demanded an electronic score reminiscent of the Channel 4 series Utopia.

FILM: By Example

Click to play

By Example is a sci-fi short directed by Christos Mavridis. The scenes in this clip provide an emotional underscore to the end of the film. commission

FILM: Psychosis

Psychosis is a short film created by Bethany Ibberson, about a high school student caught in a tangle of relationships and personal betrayal.

The score required a tense, claustrophobic feel, and to partly achieve this I added the unusual sound of a microtonal flute to my orchestration. commission
