First Netflix show!

It's still under wraps but feels like a rite of passage to be writing for my first Netflix series (happening right now!) I hope I can do the Netflix 'duh duoing' justice, which is in Dmajor incidentally, a very positive key by all accounts! More news on this to follow on completion.

Tate Britain's Great British Walks

One of my cues for this show has been chosen for the pre titles (aka titles but with talking about the show). Pretty chuffed with that; check back here for an airing date.

Rebel Of The Keys Soundtrack!

Really chuffed with last night's 2nd screening of Rebel Of The Keys at JW3. A full house with lots of important guests including David Pountney CBE who features in the documentary! I felt inspired to package up the original soundtrack today to help promote the film, so here it is if you fancy a listen. https://soundcloud.com/rosspowermusic/sets/rotk-soundtrack

New job for SkyArts!

Very pleased to be working alongside Andy Jones again and this time on a new show for Sky Arts. Can't say too much at this stage, but we're having a great time making some really interesting (and awesome) 'art' inspired music!

In the interests of work/life balance..

I had an excellent time yacht racing on Sunday down at Ramsgate on the Assassin ( a very speedy 40footer). Glad that the old muscle memory kicked back in, has been a while! We were first on the water, not sure of our position after handicap applied but it felt damn good!

A 'Next Generation' endorsement!! (kinda)

Literally had THE next generation staying with us this week for The Shawshank Redemption theatre tour at The Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury. Both the brilliant Daniel Stewart (Blunt Talk, The Detonator & son of Sir Patrick) and the lovely Jeff Alexander (Death in Paradise, Doctors) thoroughly enjoyed my new showreels (poor fellas) and whole heartedly endorse me for composing work ;-) Even after I played 'StarTrek : The Next Generation' theme at breakfast this morning.

'Do You Know' CBeebies Theme Song!

And here's the theme tune that the wife (Abi Gilchrist) sung and I played and arranged parts on. Written by the adorable Andy Jones of '2bit recordings'. You can see some of the in-series music I wrote on my documentary reel and work tab. This show is basically a 'how things work' for kids.. Though I've learnt a few things that I 'didn't know' already! R
