Laurent Dury – Cinematic Elegance

In December I was thrilled to orchestrate and conduct this album of lovely music by composer Laurent Dury. It was a pleasure to work with Laurent and record the music with some of the best musicians in the world at Abbey Road Studio 2. A huge thanks to Cavendish Music and Laurent for having me involved.

The music is available to listen at Cavendish Music

Un Traductor – at Sundance Film Festival

It was a pleasure to be involved in Bill Laurance's lovely score to Un Traductor, a fascinating and true story. A Russian Literature professor at the University of Havana is ordered to work as a translator for child victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster when they are sent to Cuba for medical treatment.

I orchestrated the music for the live string and guitar players, with the marvellous Fi Cruickshank recording and mixing the music. The film was screened at Sundance under the category 'best foreign film'.
