BBC’s “The Making of Planet Earth”

Have just had a meeting with Sally Cryer at the BBC N.H.U. and I’m going to start working on a 2 hour documentary produced by BBC Earth for BBC America. Can’t wait to get started on it, the footage looks amazing!!

Universal Music

Following a meeting at Universal Headquarters in Fulham with some lovely people I’ve started working on some music for their extensive music library.

Granada / Nat Geo – Built for the Kill – 2004

This sequence began with a snowshoe hare running in slow motion on pristine white snow. It was beautiful, delicate, and slightly entrancing. Bit by bit a puma starts coming into shot and by the time the beat kicks in, the action switches to real time and becomes incredibly claustrophobic. One of my favourite tracks.

KPM / Channel 4 – Paris Connection

I wanted to encapsulate Paris in this track, something which is pretty much impossible to do with a city that has so many facets, but I picked the more meditative side of Paris and added some more recent happenings and this was the result. It’s a nighttime track, as you’d imagine.

Collaboration

I’ve started working on a project for NHNZ’s China office with a good old mate, Kyle Murdoch. We’re just getting together a programme specifically for Discovery Asia about the Chinese Space program which is pretty interesting. Lotsof bleeps, swooshes and analog arpeggios..awesome!

BBC Worldwide – Signs of the Zodiac

Earth Kids – This piece was for a 12 part series on the Zodiac for BBC Worldwide. They talked about each sign of the zodiac in detail but also had experiments to show similarities and differences between the different elemental signs. The Earth kids were more playful, less prone to contemplation than say, the Water Kids, and I think this comes across in the music.

Granada – Crash Science

This series, produced by Granada, was all about machines and how men harness them. This particular clip of music was about the power that these machines could give but also how dangerous they could be and how, if used unwisely, they could actually end up killing.
