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.

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.

It reveals awe-inspiring wonders and recreates dramatic moments defining Earth’s destiny through using stunning CGI imagery, the latest scientific research, and archival footage captured during scientific missions. 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. Born and raised in Slovenia, Anže Rozman currently lives in LA where he works as part of the Bleeding Fingers Music, film and TV music collective formed by Hans Zimmer, Russell Emanuel and Steve Kofsky. Anže’s credits include The Planets (BBC), Super Powered Falcons (BBC), Big Beasts: Last of the Giants (Sky One) and the eye-opening IMAX documentary Great Bear Rainforest directed by Ian McAllister and narrated by Ryan Reynolds.

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.”

JOHN BARRY’S CLASSIC SOUNDTRACK RELEASED FOR THE FIRST TIME

During John Barry’s 40 years of creating memorable film scores and theme songs, most of these have resulted in soundtrack album releases, with the one notable exception being the 1974 romantic spy thriller The Tamarind Seed. Silva Screen Records is pleased to release The Tamarind Seed, the first official release, in physical and digital formats.

Though an official soundtrack album was apparently never planned, the tracks selected for this release include all the major cues used in the film, together with Wilma Reading’s commercially released single. Included are two different versions of ‘The End’, with lyrics by Don Black and as performed by Danny Street, and different versions of both main and end title themes. Upon the original release LA Times described Barry’s score as “lush” whilst Variety, singled out the quality of the song by predicting “plenty of air and juke-box plays”. Entertainment Focus comments on the effect of the score on the listener as “likely to repeat in your head for days after watching the movie. Barry strongly captures the romantic element of the story, and his melodies are beautifully translated by the orchestra.”

Starring Julie Andrews and Omar Sharif, this slow burn romantic spy movie takes a different, human angle to tell a complicated story of Cold War and Love. Created by multi-award-winning director Blake Edwards, the Julie Andrews and Omar Sharif romance gently unfolds against a backdrop of Cold War paranoia.

Music by Tom Howe

—————————

Composer Tom Howe’s (Great British Bake Off, Taskmaster) original music for David. Attenborough’s 5-part BBC series, The Mating Game, a landmark natural history series from Silverback Films. This release encompasses 5 digital albums featuring music from each episode.

Speaking in a recent issue of Radio Times, David Attenborough revealed that the series will feature things that have “never been seen on television before and which are undoubtedly some of the highlights of natural history spectacles”. Tom Howe’s score contributes to the natural history spectacle with strong themes, thematic developments and variations perfectly matching the visuals. The warmth, playfulness, suspension, and stress that the animals are experiencing are portrayed through Howe’s score in a nuanced and enriching ways.

Series Producer Jeff Wilson says “The Mating Game score needed to have a tone that played on the humorous nature of animal courtship and its obvious connections to our own lives, but also not lose the dramatic and wondrous story beats that the natural world often gifts us whilst filming. Tom knew immediately from the outset how to achieve this – his central theme for the Mating Game was so clever in how it was able to be shaped to suit stories as diverse as Ostriches displaying to oceanic Flatworms fencing with their penises! He knew how to adventurously turn on an emotional dime to suit the picture, whilst still maintaining musical integrity, and in the end his score elevated our production beyond our wildest dreams.”

From the producers of A Perfect Planet, The Mating Game is the story behind the most fascinating, hilarious and dramatic quests to find a mate and leave a lasting legacy. Exploring five different habitats across six continents, this series, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, reveals the varied, fascinating and downright bizarre strategies different animals use to find a mate. It is the ultimate inside view on what it takes to succeed at the mating game.

Tom Howe has created the music for over 100 films and television series. His work includes music for the much-loved Great British Bake Off as well as Taskmaster, Whiskey Cavalier, Paranormal Witness and the Lodge. He has also composed scores for films such as A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, Early Man, for which he received an Annie nomination, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, and Upside-Down Magic. In 2020, Howe collaborated with Marcus Mumford on the theme song and soundtrack for the Apple TV+ production Ted Lasso, for which he received an Emmy nomination. In June 2020, Howe was made a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Oscars). According to Jonathan Broxton of Movie Music UK, Tom Howe is “clearly a composer to watch” with his career “continuing on its upward trajectory”.
