A few weeks ago I took to The Sackler Room stage at The Roundhouse London to perform four tracks from my new album Seven Days by IN-IS.
The album was officially released the next day on iTunes via independent label NW1 Records and the Tom Adams remix of Opus Einn had been chosen as the ‘Record of the Weekend’ for the Mary Anne Hobbs show on BBC Radio 6.
For Season 3 of DCI Banks I was asked to compose a song for a fictional band called The Crystal Kiss.
One of the challenges of writing this song was that the song needed to written and recorded before the actual filming of the episodes took place because the song had be used as playback for the artists to mime to when the shoot for the pop video took place.
A television drama about the life of a social worker and the dilemma of child protection could have had a very dull and unexciting soundtrack – but I didn’t want to do that.
‘Protection’ (from Silent Witness series 18) is about forensic pathologists Thomas Chamberlain, Nikki Alexander, Clarissa Mullery and forensics specialist Jack Hodgson who are slowly pulled into the world of Social Worker Louise Marsh (played by Claudie Maza).
