Documentary: Legends: The Kray Twins Story

Documentary: Legends: The Kray Twins Story

After the recent success of the Frankie Fraser online documentary which hit 35,000 views in just one month, I recently collaborated with my friends Louis Frost and Bob Taylor of Silver Lining Pictures to produced yet another original score for another short animated documentary, this time focused on the notorious London gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray. 

Silver Lining provided me with just a few drawings of which I was to base a 13 minute composition on, this was a real challenge for me as I'm so used to composing directly to picture. I was told the music would need to be atmospheric, but still musical and repeat but still change in timbre and mood, below are the results.

Louis cut the trailer to my music and I think he did a great job of it too! I really enjoyed working in this way, while a little nerve wrecking that I may be going off point, to which Louis constantly assured me I was not, It gave me much musical freedom and I believe I managed to encompass many emotive qualities throughout the score.

You can view the documentary via YouTube above and check out the composition on its own below, I really hope you enjoy it!

Hans Zimmer: Bleeding Fingers Competition Entered

I have just completed my submission for the Bleeding Fingers competition, in which composers are invited to “reimagine, replay, recompose or revise to your heart’s content” the “Destiny’s Door” cue originally composed by Hans Zimmer. The lucky three winners get the opportunity to work full time in Los Angeles for Bleeding Fingers alongside high respected composers at Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions facility.

You can vote for and listen to my cue at the following location, or just hear it via the sound cloud embed below: -

I chose to rearrange the track adding my own counterpoint and orchestrated and the cue based around the main theme. The project was amazingly fun to work with, just having access the stems and being able to analyse and transcribe each individual section was overwhelming, I really hope something like this comes up again soon!
