Music by Barry Gray

—————————

The origins of the series The Secret Service began in 1968 whilst working at Pinewood Studios, Gerry Anderson bumped into a familiar face of stage and screen: comic actor Stanley Unwin. With his whimsical charm and hilarious gibberish double talk (playfully christened ‘Unwinese’) Unwin had earned great popularity throughout the 50s and 60s and the Anderson’s immediately knew that they had found someone to base their next puppet series on. For several years the Century 21 team had toyed with directly basing a puppet character on a real-life actor, now the time had come to make it a reality. Duly, the Andersons developed a premise around Unwin, returning to their ‘unlikely spy’ scenario which had worked so well with Joe 90, they created ‘Father’ Unwin, a kindly priest who, despite outwardly disappearing into whimsy, doubles as a determined agent for British Intelligence. In the series the lines would be blurred even further between the miniature Supermarionation world and reality, as live action footage of Stanley Unwin would also be used in the series.

To appropriately reflect the The Secret Service’s premise and compliment the gentle title sequence created to introduce the series, Barry Gray decided step completely away from his usual attention-grabbing themes and write a three-part fugue in the style of the Baroque composer Bach. To perform the vocals, the Mike Sammes Singers were hired, the vocal group who Gray had used on the Supercar theme back in 1961. Once coupled with soft organ and minimalist percussion, a truly unique piece of inventive music was born to bookend Father Unwin’s adventures, which perfectly captured the off-beat nature of the series.

Trigger Point

Music by Chris Roe

—————————

Trigger Point, Chris Roe’s impassioned electro acoustic score to ITV’s high-octane drama starring stage and screen actor Adrian Lester MBE and Line of Duty’s Vicky McClure. Produced by Jed Mercurio for HTM television.

Set in contemporary London, Trigger Point focuses on stories about the Bomb Disposal Squad, known as “Expo”, with officers risking their lives daily. Vicky McClure plays Lana Washington, the reckless ex-military officer and experienced bomb disposal operative. The Guardian describes the series as “utterly preposterous… but what a blast. Vicky McClure and Adrian Lester star in this slick police thriller full of bomb factories and banter. Just go in thinking CSI: Peckham or Line of Bomb Duty and you’ll have a great time.”

Chris Roe’s contemporary score immerses the listener in the tense emotional world of the characters with tender moments assigned to cello melodies and processed string ostinatos. This is a powerful, yet understated score. Here, the inner life of characters is truly brought to life through the waves of honest, uncompromising sound.

Composer Chris Roe is a classically trained composer and multi-instrumentalist with a background in contemporary experimental classical music. He has scored TV projects for BBC 2, BBC Storyville, SKY Atlantic. His most recent feature film project is the highly acclaimed After Love. This debut by BAFTA-nominated director Aleem Khan, starring Joanna Scanlan, was part of selection for Cannes Critics Week, BFI London Film Festival, Telluride amongst several others and the score won Best Original Score at Les Arcs Film Festival. Chris is the founding member and conductor of ANIMA ensemble, staging live musical performances alongside abstract animated films.

The Watch

Music by Russ Davies

—————————

‘The Watch’ soundtrack by Russ Davies for the TV adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s beloved Discworld book series.

The eight-part series is inspired by characters created by Terry Pratchett, rather than being a straight book adaptation. Underlined by Cyberpunk visuals, Season One takes place “somewhere in a distant secondhand dimension”. It follows the misfits of The City Watch, a police organisation in a city ruled by crime guilds. The guilds are regulated, the assassins are allowed to kill a certain number of citizens a year (and must leave receipts on the bodies), while people can schedule muggings or other thief-related activity as those guilds also fill their quotas.

The Watch soundtrack is penned by British composer and producer Russ Davies. Davies brings together a diverse range of influences and genres to create unique modern compositions. Prior to starting writing for film and TV in 2019, Russ has released over 15 artist albums under various aliases including Abakus, Cinnamon Chasers and Aiiso. Mojo sees his music as “Satisfying unpredictable”, whilst The Observer describes it as “A blend of power and intimacy that resembles the rawness of John Lennon mixed with the hushed heart-shiver of Nick Drake or Alex Chilton.”

Davies describes the soundtrack as a “fantasy themed score, with an energetic fusion of orchestral layers, analog synthesisers and electric guitar, aiming to be as left-field, unconventional and as colourful as the show is itself”. Davies’s song writing skills are spotlighted in Zero, song written for the climax of Episode Four. Zero is performed by Inge Beckmann who also appears in the episode as a Torch Singer in The Mended Drum.

Music by Alex Heffes

—————————

Sudden Light is a brand-new album of solo piano music written by Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated composer Alex Heffes. With this album, the composer performs his own music for the first time stripped back to solo piano in an intimate and personal journey of rediscovery.

Born in the UK, Alex’s life-long passion for playing the piano started at an early age and has been a constant throughout his career as a composer. In 2018 his piano playing came to an abrupt halt following an accident that left one hand severely broken. Surgery and rehabilitation left him unable to fully play for an extended period and gradually lead to his almost abandoning the instrument. His latest album, Sudden Light is a musical journey of rediscovery. In exploring some of his previous compositions and re-working them for solo piano, a new light is cast on the music and a new path created to the composer rediscovering how to perform again.

Alex Heffes is a Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated composer known for his scores to over 60 movies and TV series including The Last King of Scotland, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, State of Play, Black Mirror, Roots and many others. Originally rising to critical acclaim with his scores to Kevin Macdonald’s Academy Award-winning One Day In September, BAFTA winning Touching The Void and others, he has collaborated with many of cinema’s top filmmakers such as Stephen Frears (The Program), Mira Nair (Queen of Katwe, A Suitable Boy), Catherine Hardwicke (Miss Bala) and JJ Abrams (11.22.63).

The Thief, His Wife and The Canoe

The Thief His Wife and The Canoe
amazon apple spotify
Music by Harry Escott and Ben Pearson

—————————

“Tied in with a jaunty soundtrack and ITV has really pulled off a winner. Just like the original true story, fictional Anne and John Darwin will stay with you long after the episodes end, as you ponder all the unanswered questions the nation still has. It’s quirky, off-beat, hard-hitting and truly memorable.”

– Radio Times 5*

—————————

The ITV mini-series soundtrack to The Thief, His Wife and The Canoe. Scripted by Chris Lang (Unforgotten, Innocent) and produced by award winning producers Story Films.

Featuring Bafta-winner Monica Dolan and Eddie Marsan, known for his work with director Mike Leigh, the series is based on the extraordinary and compelling true story of how John Darwin faked his own death. Together with his wife Anne Darwin, John perpetrated one of the most elaborate, devastating and surreal frauds of all time. Faking his death in a canoe accident off the coast of Seaton Carew, North East England, he lived for five years undetected in a bedsit connecting to his wife’s bedroom. The couple reaped the rewards of John’s life insurance and plotted a new life together in Panama, whilst their two adult sons believed John to be dead.

Written by Harry Escott and Ben Pearson, the beautifully colourful score is a perfect match for this darkly comic and tragic fable. The music doesn’t shy away from the fantasy, the absurdity and the painful reality of this coercive marriage and the unforgivable betrayal. And yet, somewhere there is hope of a new beginning for Anne as she tries to rebuild her relationship with her sons.

Harry Escott is known for scoring Steve McQueen’s Shame and Michael Winterbottom’s A Mighty Heart, Road to Guantanamo and Greed. Harry recently won a BAFTA for his music to the BBC drama Roadkill, and he has just completed the score to Uprising – a 3 film series directed by Steve McQueen which is set to air on BBC One later this year. Away from the screen, Harry’s work includes collaborations with P J Harvey (An Acre Of Land), the poet Lavinia Greenlaw, (sound installation Audio Obscura) and the Ora Singers, (O Light Of Light).

Ben Pearson works extensively in film and TV, and frequently with Harry Escott. He contributed arrangements and additional music for The Wedding Guest, Deep State Season 2 and Greed. His most recent projects working alongside Harry Escott have been The English Game, and also, he acted as Music Editor on the Bafta-winning Roadkill.

The Chelsea Detective

The Chelsea Detective
amazon apple spotify
Music by Ian Arber

—————————

Ian Arber’s electro-acoustic soundtrack to Acorn TV’s original drama ‘The Chelsea Detective’ starring Adrian Scarborough (Gosford Park, Gavin & Stacey, Killing Eve) as DI Max Arnold and Sonita Henry (Luther, Krypton) as DI Priya Shamsie.

The Chelsea Detective journeys through a diverse cross-section of Chelsea London life, spanning the mansions of the super-rich to the council flats of the World’s End Estate, and the rarefied corridors of a prestigious international school to the leafy melancholy of Brompton Cemetery and the bustle of the King’s Road. The series is written by Glen Laker (Vera, Prime Suspect), Peter Fincham and Liz Lake (Riviera, Call the Midwife).

Ian Arber’s nuanced soundtrack spotlights the timeless piano and cello theme against the pulsating strings and electronics. The gorgeous modal motif keeps recurring, in different variations, with the sound expanding and contracting. Navigating nostalgia and pensiveness, Arber creates a sense of covert anxiety against a backdrop of beauty, bolstering the dark undertones of the Chelsea story lines.

Ian Arber is a classically trained film and television composer, proficient in cello, piano, bass, electric and acoustic guitar, and music production. He is known for his work on Netflix original’s The One (2021) and Medici (2018), BBC One thriller The Capture (2019), The BBC Proms Theme (2019-), My Name Is Lenny (2017) starring John Hurt, award-winning documentaries After The Screaming Stops and I Am Bolt (2016), and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015).

Also available on Silva Screen Records is Ian Arber’s soundtrack for BBC One thriller The Capture.

This is an immersive and expansive series telling a dramatic story of the universe, from its moment of inception 13.8 billion years ago, to what could be its ultimate fate, trillions upon trillions of years in the future.

“We used to look to the sky and see only questions. Now we are beginning to see answers.”
Professor Brian Cox

Composer Anže Rozman’s soaring score perfectly complements the visuals and the narrative of the series.

Landscapers

Music by Arthur Sharpe

—————————

WINNER OF THE 2022 BAFTA TELEVISION AWARDS FOR ‘ORIGINAL MUSIC’

—————————

The score for the Sky Atlantic true crime series, directed by Will Sharpe (Flowers), and starring Olivia Colman (The Crown, The Favourite) and David Thewlis (Fargo, Big Mouth). The score is composed by award winning composer Arthur Sharpe.

Landscapers is a co-production between HBO and Sky and is the latest project from SISTER, the company behind the multi-Emmy and BAFTA award-winning limited series, Chernobyl.

The series, described by Sky as “exhilarating and darkly funny”, was inspired by real events. Created and written by Ed Sinclair, it tells the story of a mild-mannered English couple murdering the wife’s parents and going undetected for a decade, bizarrely spending all the stolen money on Hollywood memorabilia. The story explores the power and dark side of love and fantasy. Olivia Colman, comments “the truth is it’s quite rare to be desperate to play a part on the first reading of a script, but that was the case here. The writing is brave, but subtle and tender too – a joy for any actor.”

Arthur Sharpe’s brilliant score maintains the romantic, overwrought, and claustrophobic sound throughout, with nods to the great Western scores in Spaghetti Landscapers and High Noon Mangle. Arthur explains his process “At the heart of Landscapers is a tension between reality and fiction, between the sinister story of a real-life double murder and Susan’s romanticised view of her relationship with Chris and her infatuation with Old Westerns and their male protagonists. This blend of darkness and the more sweeping flavours of classic cinema and the Wild West help to colour the protagonists in all different shades, so we are never quite sure if we are on their side or not. More classical leaning orchestral themes and instrumentation, led by melodic strings and woodwinds, carry the romance of Susan’s fantasies, but they are undercut by the more macabre elements that represent the murky shape-shifting ambiguity of the truth, such as discordant brass and bassoons playing in their darker upper ranges. Percussion built out of non-musical objects like metal chairs, desk lamps, even leeks, as well as the clanging of distant industrial works and processed recordings of the wind, all bring uneasy and unfamiliar textures which disturb Susan’s Hollywood idyll.”

Arthur Sharpe is an Award-winning film and TV composer. While still studying at Edinburgh University, he began his career writing music for various Cambridge Footlights shows including the sketch show Grow Up, which enjoyed a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He then went on to form part of the team behind the soundtrack for the BAFTA-nominated feature film Black Pond (2011). Other TV works include scoring the first series of the BBC1 comedy Ghosts (2019 – present), Women On The Verge (2018) created by Lorna Martin and Sharon Horgan, and Neil Forsyth’s BBC Scotland & BBC2 comedy drama Guilt (2019 – 2021) and most recently the feature film The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain (2021), starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Alongside his film and TV work, Arthur also fronts and writes for the indie band Arthur In Colour.

Also available on Silva Screen Records is Flowers II, the score for which Artur Sharpe received the RTS Craft & Design Award for Best Original Music in 2016. The RTS Jury stated that “There was a lot going on in this score and the music effectively became another character in the show with a sense of quirkiness and drama – which is hard to pull off, but done so with aplomb in this winning entry.”
