Project Description

SCORES FOR UNWRITTEN SCENES

I’ve written these pieces as soundtracks to film or theatre scenes, mostly imagined or unwritten, although some tracks are arrangements of incidental music and underscore from previous theatre projects. Some of them are exercises in working with sample libraries or writing in a particular style or genre.

Pianobook

These tracks are made with sample libraries from the Pianobook project. Pianobook is a community of composers, musicians and technologists who create uncomplicated sample libraries and share them free of charge. Originally focused on piano samples, this ever expanding library now includes a wide range of instruments and pads. I’ve tried to focus on Pianobook libraries and other free libraries, such as the fantastic Spitfire LABS series, but some tracks do feature content from commercial libraries that I own.

Jekyll & Hyde Suite

This is a suite of pieces that were originally written for the play Jekyll & Hyde by Evan Placey and produced by Birmingham Repertory Theatre. The play required incidental music for complex scene changes, underscore and dramatic movement sequences such as Jekyll’s transformation and a music hall performance. I used a melodic vocal line and instrumental countermelody to represent the Jekyll & Hyde characters and other thematic ideas run through the pieces. You can read more about the production here.
