Cervantes - Composer

Newsletter - Autumn 2012


In Development

From Wolfheart Productions, Curtis Brown screenwriter Tom De Ville (THE QUIET ONES) takes on directorial duties for CORVIDAE - a truly dark fairy tale rooted in the tradition of pastoral horror. A young girl, a trio of bullies and a murder of crows... Listen to compositional sketches for the short which I've been bouncing with Tom.

Editor David Veltman is completing his debut independent feature as director with SAY FAREWELL. A planned cruise for a man takes an unexpected turn as his girlfriend breaks up with him just before they depart. Shot in B&W and on location along the Baltic coastline. Currently in post, SAY FAREWELL features over a dozen compositions I have contributed. Hear a featured composition from the movie.

Two compositions contributed for Suzanne Keogh's THE GUEST, a UK short comedy drama. In post. Listen to one of the pieces.

I've been signed on to score a debut feature by writer/director Jad Oliver. Entitled DESERT ROAD, shooting is to begin in the Australian outback for this mysterious film which I actually know very little about!

Director Regan Hall's debut feature FAST GIRLS hit theatres via STUDIO CANAL this summer. Previously, I have worked with Regan on two promos for American Crew.


Achieving Neptune EP

Achieving Neptune EP - Play

25 mins of instrumental work which bridges the gap between contemporary rock, dissonant ambient and music for film. Currently in mastering with Mathias Schneeberger (SOUND CITY, Afghan Whigs, Joseph Arthur) at his LA studio, my debut EP entitled ACHIEVING NEPTUNE has won praise from Paul Beehan at Manimal Records LA (Bat For Lashes, Warpaint).

Watch the teaser video here.


Doctors Without Borders

The music for Doctors Without Borders: Medicine On The Edge, produced and broadcast by Current TV in 2011 is still available for free download.

The acoustic led, 15 piece soundtrack was submitted to the MAS Awards 2012 for Best Original Composition - TV. The programme continues to air in territories including South Africa, Germany and the US.

Upgrades

Various studio upgrades have been made in my studio in South London including the world's leading orchestral library Vienna Symphonic Library and the Useful Noise collection by Nine Inch Nails' programmer Keith Hillebrandt.

Courtesy of Lark In The Park, a rare instrument dealer in Northern California, I have acquired an instrument called an Oceanharp, a variation on the Waterphone. See a video demonstration of this rare instrument which uses water to help produce the strange etherial tones and has been used in countless scores including THE MATRIX, DIRTY HARRY and CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON.
