Original Soundtrack by Rael Jones

Digital album release of Rael Jones’s bold and anachronistic soundtrack to Hulu & ITV’s 8-part series set in the 18th Century brothels of London. The soundtrack mixes electronica and stoner rock genres, underpinning the story and reflecting the experiences and rebellious nature of the women depicted in the programme.

Described by Hollywood Reporter as “intriguingly unique”, this period drama with a contemporary twist was entirely written, directed and produced entirely by women. The show was inspired by a book called Harris’s List of Convent Garden Ladies, a Yellow Pagesstyle directory that featured a list of prostitutes, their ages, price and sexual perversions.

Harlots is airing on ITV Encore, the network’s channel dedicated to drama and stars Samantha Morton (Fantastic Beasts, Rillington Place, The Last Panthers, Minority Report, Cider with Rosie), Lesley Manville (Mum, River, Maleficent) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Victor Frankenstein, The Outcast, Downton Abbey).

Rael Jones is a classically trained composer and Multi-Instrumentalist. His writing stems from improvisation and live performance, and he is a highly accomplished player of many instruments – Piano, Guitars, Drums, Autoharp and Musical Saw. Rael regularly tours as a guitarist with Guillemots front man Fyfe Dangerfield, as well as with his own band Thumpermonkey. Rael’s film and TV credits include My Cousin Rachel, Suite Française, Supersonic (the feature documentary about the band Oasis), NW (the TV adaptation of Zadie Smith’s NW), the coming-of-age drama Kids In Love and the feature documentary Still The Enemy Within. As orchestrator, music producer, music editor and programmer Rael has worked on film adaptation of Les Misérables, Steve Jobs, The Danish Girl, Alan Partridge, The Inbetweeners

Set against the backdrop of one of the most explosive times in U.K. history, Guerrilla tells the story of a politically active couple whose relationship and values are tested when they liberate a political prisoner and form a radical underground cell in 1970s London. This six-part limited series is written and directed by Academy Award®-winner John Ridley, with Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild® Award-winner Idris Elba. One of the most prolific of contemporary artists, composer Max Richter has scored over 50 films. After graduating from the Royal Academy Of Music his work has encompassed concert music,operas, ballet, film, theatre and TV scores. Previous film and TV include Waltz With Bashir, Sarah’s Key, The Lunchbox, Testament Of Youth and The Leftovers. The release also features a tantalising selection of early 70s reggae grooves from the Trojan catalogue alongside the psychedelic soul of Noir and other music of the period.

Debbie Wiseman: Live at the Barbican

game of thrones

As part of Barbican’s Contemporary Music Concerts series, in January 2016 The Orchestra of the Guildhall School performed in a retrospective concert of composer Debbie Wiseman’s film, TV and concert work.

The Guildhall School alumna, Award winning composer Debbie Wiseman MBE, is one of the UK’s most in-demand composers writing for film, TV and concert hall. She is currently Classic FM’s Composer in Residence, and her soundtrack to the recent BBC TV series Wolf Hall went straight to the top of the classical music charts. With this concert Debbie Wiseman makes a nostalgic return to the School to conduct the Guildhall Chamber Orchestra in a programme of her music.

Debbie Wiseman explains – “The three years I spent studying piano and composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama were very special, and I was thrilled to be invited back to conduct a concert of my music with the college’s Symphony Orchestra at their brand new concert hall in the Barbican Centre, Milton Court. I was hugely impressed – but not at all surprised – at the high standard of the orchestra. These talented first and second-year musicians, despite their youth, would not sound out of place in the professional world, such is their ability. They played with commitment, focus and infectious enthusiasm, and it was an enormous pleasure working with them all. This album is dedicated to my wonderful composition teacher at the Guildhall School, Buxton Orr.”

Music of Game of Thrones

game of thrones
spotify
Performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Music Composed by Ramin Djawadi

In 2011 composer Ramin Djawadi was first asked to score a new TV series called Game of Thrones. In its first season much of the music was written for a small string ensemble, and filled out with synthetic pads and percussion. Over the course of the next six seasons the music budget got bigger and bigger to match the ever-increasing viewing figures the show was enjoying. This release celebrates the rich tapestry of music over the six series with the full firepower of an 80 piece symphony orchestra and choir.

Game of Thrones really is a television phenomenon. HBO’s epic small screen adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s series of fantasy tomes continues to draw in record audiences around the world, and shows no signs of slowing down. Indeed some 8.9m people tuned in to the Season Six finale in the US and with repeats, recordings and on-demand viewings taken into consideration, it is estimated that Game of Thrones enjoys an average of 23m viewers per installment. With a whopping thirty-eight Emmy Awards (and counting), this series remains the darling of prime-time pay TV.

With so much music created for the sixty episodes so far broadcast, this album can of course only take in so much. The particular cues and themes it does highlight, though, lend themselves beautifully to this symphonic re-imagining.

Great mystery stories, the cream of British acting talent, stunning production values and of course the vital musical score from David Arnold (Independence Day, The World Is Not Enough) and Michael Price (Jekyll & Hyde, Unforgotten). 

The Emmy Award winning composers return with more fresh takes on the characters and situations. Sherlock is a series that doesn’t wallow in its success as David Arnold explains, “I think we both want to move it on every time. If the show stands still then the music does too and it all grinds to a halt…so we are always trying to find something new to do with it”.

“If David Arnold and Michael Price did not exist, it would be necessary for man to invent them. Their contribution to Sherlock is immeasurable. Thrilling, cheeky, sinister, playful and simply world-class…the music’s not bad either.” Mark Gatiss (Sherlock and League Of Gentlemen creator).

RAN – Toru Takemitsu (digital)


spotify
Original music by TORU TAKEMITSU

Over a 60 year career director Akira Kurosawa’s films have passed into cinematic legend and he retains his status as one of the most influential and preeminent film-makers of the 20th Century.

Films such as Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Kagemusha and his last great epic, Ran are all regarded as milestones in the history of celluloid. The latter, the most expensive film made in Japan up to its release in 1985 is loosely based on Japanese legend and Shakespeare’s King Lear.

Composer Toru Takemitsu ranks as highly in the echelons
of Japanese music as Kurosawa in film with a prolific output
of soundtracks alongside major music works and books.

Commissioned on Kurosawa’s instructions to deliver a score inspired by Mahler with up to 40 disparate takes of music, the spectral and eerie sounds capture perfectly the imagery on screen.

Originally released as two separate suites of music this version includes those and adds a further 14 tracks of Takemitsu’s score.

And Then There Were None


spotify
Music By Stuart Earl
Original Television Soundtrack

Stuart Earl’s score to the BBC adaptation of Agatha Christie’s best- selling thriller, And Then There Were None, nominated for the 61st Ivor Novello Awards in the Best Television Soundtrack category.

Stuart Earl’s previous scores have been described as “mood-enhancing” (Hollywood Reporter), “reflective” (Nouse) “evocative” (Film-Forward), “dreamlike” (Little White Lies). His mastery is not to underline, but to draw from the story and characters, and to craft an exquisite sound world, and this is what he accomplishes in And Then There Were None. A meditation on guilt, the 3-part drama serial premiered in the UK December 26th to 28th on BBC One in the UK. The series averaged 8.7 million viewers, with 9.5 million people tuning into the first night and garnered widespread critical acclaim.
