The first episode was shown on the 14th February and the series is available on iplayer. it features some terrific strumming from guitarist Andrew Simmons (on a variety of plucked instruments) as well as some wonderful cello performances by Lily Thornton. There are plenty of drums too...

Album Recording in Budapest

A fun few days were spent this month recording the Budapest Studio Orchestra for a new album of quirky orchestral music in collaboration with Cavendish Music. Orchestrations were full of colour and a sense of the macabre and the 54 piece orchestra (including a saxophone section) played with technical finesse and lots of character. I can't wait to share the mixes! Thanks to Taz, Sandor, the musicians, and all at Tomtom Studios for such a terrific experience.

More photos to come but here's one I snapped of the room shortly before our huge brass session!
