Music by Hannes De Maeyer

—————————

The original soundtrack for Britbox / ITV drama, composed by Belgian Award-winning composer Hannes De Maeyer.

The TV soundtrack for the original Belgian series was also composed by De Maeyer, which ran from 2015 on C4, with series 3 currently available to stream.

Described by The Guardian as having “an abundance of imagination and characterisation”, the show follows Professor Jasper Tempest a genius Cambridge University criminologist with OCD and an overbearing mother, as he advises police. The show stars Death in Paradise‘s Ben Miller, Frances de la Tour and Juliet Aubrey.

Hannes De Maeyer (Gangsta, The Racer, Torpedo, Rafaël, Black) is one of Belgium’s most versatile composers, best known for his collaboration with director duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah on Gangsta and Black. His scores range from pure electronic to impressive symphonic instrumentation. The Cine Journal comments on De Maeyer’s work: “Belgian composer Hannes De Maeyer is hands down one of Europe’s most versatile composers. One need look no further than his gorgeous soundtrack for the Belgian war drama ‘Torpedo’, which summons the flair of old Hollywood war scores; or ‘Gangsta’, a thriller imbued in 80s nostalgia with its old-school electronic sonic world; or the tense soundscape he crafted for the Amsterdam-set crime series, ‘Women of the Night’.” Review Graveyard gives the score for Torpedo 10/10 – “De Maeyer delivers an epic score, packed with original themes, that will send shivers down your spine.”

In Professor T, De Maeyer introduces a beautiful main theme with a pulse and purpose, and variations of it can be heard throughout the score, supporting the characters and giving scenes greater layers and depth. Though versatile, De Maeyer is primarily a thematic composer with talent for melody, character and orchestration.

Re:Scored – Epic Classical Volume 2

ReScored Epic Classical Volume 2
amazon apple spotify
Music by London Music Works

—————————

This is the second album in Silva Screen Records’ Re:scored series and a follow up to Re:scored Epic Classical. The Re: Scored series introduces fresh, thoughtful and contemporary film score reworkings of established genres. On Epic Classical Vol. 2, composer Antonin Roux re-arranges classical favourites in “epic” film score mode. Bach’s Cello Suite no. 1 in G major, Strauss’s The Blue Danube Waltz and Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March in D Major feature award-winning singer Merethe Soltvedt.

The 10 classical compositions chosen for re:scoring are ingrained in popular culture and have appeared in many movies, from drama and animation to Sci-Fi and comedy. Here, the big expansive sound is always a shortcut for an epic win or lose, strength or weakness, purgative or transformational moment in the story; the distinct phrases and harmonies have now become a shortcut for turmoil, end and new beginnings.

Throughout the history of film making, iconic sequences were created by syncing classical music to picture; such as Debussy’s Claire De Lune as part of the Bellagio Resort’s fountain show in Ocean’s Eleven, Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries played at full volume in the Apocalypse Now helicopter invasion scene and Strauss’s Blue Danube Waltz op.314 adopted in Kubrik’s 2001: A Space Odyssey as a recurring theme, giving the movie a timeless and hypnotic quality.

Merethe Soltvedt’s rich vocals can be heard on Interstellar, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, X-Men and Ready Player One. Merethe is also a performing and collaborative artist. Notably, Merethe sang with a full orchestra and choir at the Walt Disney Concert Hall as well as with Norwegian rock stars and international artists across Europe, in New York and LA.

Antonin Roux is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist and film composer based in France.

Music by Sarah Warne

—————————

Sarah Warne’s soundtrack to BBC One hard hitting prison drama Time. The soundtrack was written for a small ensemble featuring Laetitia Stott (Horns), Ed Ashby (Tuba), Eleanor Bartlett (Violin), Laurie Anderson (Viola), Peter Gregson (Cello) and Sarah Warne (Bowed harp and vocals).

Time is a three-part series written by Jimmy McGovern (Hillsborough, Broken and Accused), directed by Lewis Arnold (Des, Dark Money, The Forge) and starring Line of Duty’s Stephen Graham and Games of Thrones’ Sean Bean.

Composer Sarah Warne talks about the compositional process: “The music for Time explores the slow and painful road to redemption, the harrowing isolation of incarceration, and Mark and Eric’s united torment as they both strive to do what is right. Visceral yet sensitive performances from the score’s core ensemble, combined with off-kilter prepared piano and detuned ethereal textures, are designed to dig deep into the powerful questions at the centre of the drama.”

The series offers a realistic depiction of prison life. Sean Bean plays Mark Cobden, an ex-headteacher jailed for drink-driving and consumed by guilt over his actions who soon realises that he needs to learn how to survive in prison. Stephen Graham plays Eric McNally, a prison officer who becomes increasingly desperate to protect his son and arrives at a crossroads that forces him to choose between his principles and his love for his family.

Writer Jimmy McGovern comments: “The BBC have given me a brilliant young director and two of the greatest actors on the planet. I am overjoyed.”

Composer Sarah Warne is best known for her work on critically acclaimed television drama series, Humans (C4), and her most recent score for Des (ITV primetime). Her work also includes Dark Money (BBC1), Catching a Killer (C4), Girls On The Edge (BBC2), and Treasures of Ancient Greece (BBC4).

Sarah recently scored Trump’s Breadline Kids (C4) which observes several families in Ohio during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and is narrated by Sheridan Smith. She is currently scoring 4-part television drama series The Drowning starring Jill Halfpenny, Jonas Armstrong and Rupert Penry-Jones.

Music by Sarah Warne

—————————

Des is Sarah Warne’s 3rd TV soundtrack album release on Silva Screen Records. Previously released on Silva Screen were Dark Money broadcast in 2019 on BBC One and Humans series 2 & 3, broadcast during 2018 and 2019 on Channel 4.

Des is a British three-part television drama miniseries, based on real life events, the 1983 arrest of Scottish serial killer Dennis Nilsen and one of the most infamous criminal cases in UK history. David Tennant (Doctor Who, Good Omens) gives an award-winning performance as Dennis Nilsen, serial killer who murdered over fifteen young men and boys in London over a period of five years. Co-starring Daniel Mays and Jason Watkins, Des focuses on Nilsen’s capture and subsequent trial. The three-part series is based on the book Killing For Company by Brian Masters. The series premiered on ITV, UK on 14 September 2020 on. On 16th March 2021 the series was released on DVD and Blue-ray in the US.

The psychological portrait of Dennis Nilsen has given Sarah a stimulus to create an all-enveloping slow tide of pulsating electronic sound. Gently moving through a body of chords and punctuated by tenderly distorted piano, percussion and floating string fragments, Sarah Warne’s score provides a cold and meditative space for Nilsen’s character to unravel.

Sarah is a Film and Arts Composer and multi-instrumentalist based in London. Trained as a classical harpist and pianist, and as a composer Sarah specialises in the blending of acoustic instruments with unique electronic signatures. Her for love for narrative and drama so story-telling is always at the core of the music she creates. She is a graduate of Oxford University, The Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and The National Film and Television School (MA Composing) and her recent work includes BAFTA nominated documentary series Catching a Killer (C4), drama series Humans series 2 & 3 (C4), Dark Money, Prey (ITV), Trump’s Breadline Kids and The Treasures of Ancient Greece (BBC 4).

Paddy Kingsland was the first Radiophonic composer to see a solo release of his compositions, although he is not credited on the sleeve. “Fourth Dimension”, first released in 1973, showcased Kingsland’s theme tunes for television and radio while at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. The recordings feature a rock-style backing band and synthesisers including the VCS 3 and “Delaware” Synthi 100, and the track “Reg” from the album was also released as the B side to the 1973 single release of the iconic Doctor Who theme tune.

Kingsland remained at the workshop for 21 years, leaving in 1981, during which time he composed music for much loved TV shows The Changes, Doctor Who and The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy among others.

Through A Glass Darkly

Through A Glass Darkly
amazon apple spotify
Music by Peter Howell and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop

—————————

Peter Howell joined the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in 1974, coming from a career in various psychedelic folk bands, which saw him record five albums with fellow musician John Ferdinando. He composed his first Doctor Who output in ’75 in the form of some incidental music for “Revenge of the Cybermen” and special sound for “Planet of Evil”. In 1980, he was asked by the programme’s then new producer, John Nathan-Turner, to update the iconic Doctor Who theme. The new arrangement appeared on that year’s “The Leisure Hive”, continuing to be used through Tom Baker’s remaining series as the Doctor and throughout Peter Davison’s. It was replaced during Colin Baker’s tenure in 1986 with a new version by Dominic Glynn.

“Through A Glass Darkly” was released in 1978 as a standalone studio album by Howell in collaboration with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. The six original instrumental compositions (one of which is 19 minutes long) flaunt a prog rock influence as well as the distinctive electronic sound of the RWS. “The Astronauts” (track 5, side 2) appeared again as a B side to the 1980 single release of his version of the Doctor Who theme.

Music by Adam Lukas and Denise Santos

—————————

Primates premiered on BBC 1 on 25th May 2020. Filmed over two years in locations around the world, from the snowy Atlas Mountains to the flooded jungles of Sumatra and Brazil. Primates is a 3-episode documentary series created by the BBC Studios Natural History and narrated by Chris Packham. The episodes, “Secrets of Survival”, “Family Matters” and “Protecting Primates”, follow our closest animal relatives and reveal how much we have in common with them.

“There is a monkey in the BBC’s new nature epic that bears a startling resemblance to Donald Trump. The uakari has a disgruntled, crimson face and bleach blond hair – though its coat is far thicker than the wispy comb-over still desperately clinging to the president’s scalp. It’s one of the many creatures we meet in Primates (BBC1), which serves as a reminder of just how similar humans are to our closest furry relatives.” – Independent

The score was written by composers Adam Lukas (National Geographics Being The Queen, Netflix’ Roman Empire II) and Denise Santos (National Geographic’s Gathering Storm, Savage Kingdom, Discovery’s Apollo: The Forgotten Films) who work as a part of the musically diverse composer’s collective Bleeding Fingers. Founded by Hans Zimmer, Steve Kofsky and Russell Emanuel, Emmy and Bafta nominated Bleeding Fingers Music is a home to exceptional and sonically diverse composers. The collective’s work includes soundtracks for Planet Earth II, Seven Worlds, One Planet and Blue Planet II, all previously released on Silva Screen Records.

“Mischievous music patters over scenes of bush babies getting up to no good, instructing us how to feel. “At last, jack pot!” cries Packham, when the pint-sized creatures find their dinner.” – Independent

Music by Anže Rozman and Andrew Christie

—————————

The Planets premiered on BBC 2 on 28th May 2019. Narrated by Professor Brian Cox, the series follows the dramatic lives of the eight majestic planets that make up our solar system through five episodes -“A Moment in the Sun – The Terrestrial Planets” (Inner Worlds), “The Two Sisters – Earth & Mars”, “The Godfather – Jupiter”, “Life Beyond the Sun – Saturn”, “Into the Darkness – Ice Worlds”.

The score was written by composers Andrew Christie, Anže Rozman, Jacob Shea and David Fleming, who work as a part of the musically diverse composer’s collective Bleeding Fingers. Founded by Hans Zimmer, Steve Kofsky and Russell Emanuel, Emmy and Bafta nominated Bleeding Fingers Music is a home to exceptional and sonically diverse composers. The collective’s work includes soundtracks for Planet Earth II, Seven Worlds, One Planet and Blue Planet II, all previously released on Silva Screen Records.

“He (Prof Brian Cox) will tell (he promised, standing on a rocky precipice as a low sun flared behind him) ‘stories of worlds born and worlds lost… their destinies more entwined than we ever imagined.’ The effect is vastly heightened by the symphonic soundtrack from composer Andrew Christie, a protege of Hollywood music giant Hans Zimmer and who sounds as if he’d be right at home in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” – The Arts Desk

“Armed with an intense musical score, very reminiscent of the video game series Mass Effect, The Planets does a good job keeping things feeling suitably epic and intense throughout the episode.” – The Review Geek

“In Brian Cox’s new series high drama, a cinematic soundtrack and CGI combine to make life on earth appear truly miraculous” – iNews
