I've composed music for Sony and Sega on major computer games titles. Below is an advert for PSP game "Crush" from Sega featuring my music - a superb brief to work with - the Music Director asked for "Danny Elfman meets Massive attack " So thats what he got …..
Choosing the right players is key to a successful soundtrack and huge credit must go to Neil Cowley for his piano and synth parts. Neil and I have worked together on many projects including the Green Nuns and Gabrielle's band.
To create the insane pace and feel required I gave Neil dramatic and rather odd guidelines i.e " Play this line as if you were falling downstairs with the piano strapped top your knees ".
The project saw me recording a local rugby team singing pirate songs and folk society doing renditions of sea shanties which I then "warped" electronically .
