New Course - Cinematic Orchestration


I recently started the Cinematic Orchestration, from Guy Michelmore's successful training organisation ThinkSpace, and I'm already halfway thru module 2.

I have to say it is outstandingly good and my knowledge of orchestration has taken some leaps in understanding.

The course lasts 12 months and costs £609 at the time of writing, but the duration can be extended by buying extra credits.

Here is an overview of the course topics:
  • Unit 1: An Introduction to Orchestration
  • Unit 2: Strings 1
  • Unit 3: Strings 2
  • Unit 4: Woodwind 1
  • Unit 5: Woodwind 2
  • Unit 6: Brass 1
  • Unit 7: Brass 2
  • Unit 8: Writing for Harp and Percussion
  • Unit 9: Writing for Small Orchestra
  • Unit10: Writing for Large Orchestra
  • Unit11: Working with Musicians
  • Sampling Technology Supplement
At the time of writing the course costs £609 inc delivery

New Commission - Revelation


Following on from the successful collaboration with John Edwards from DayZero Productions on "The Last Piece", John asked me to score his forthcoming documentary "Revelation".

"Revelation" focusses on credit card fraud and how easy it is given the various resources of the internet, and the short-sightedness of the credit providers in their security measures.

John is hoping that Channel 4 will buy the documentary as they have expressed interest and asked for a screening copy, which was provided to them this week. So, we are just awaiting their decision... fingers crossed.
