Finished the music to a great looking commercial for Pilsner Urquell beer this week. It was directed by Stuart Rideout of RSA films and shot on location near Prague. The client liked the music so much that they flew me out to The Czech Republic for two days to say thanks and gave me a tour around the brewery! Needless to say this has never happened before and will probably never happen again but it was great fun and obviously I was pleased that things went so well. The music has a Goldfrapp/John Barry feel with vocals by Michaela Betts and strings played by Marvin Ayres. I also wrote the lyrics for the track and because of the Angel that we see in the commercial they are inspired by that very fine film Wings Of Desire by Wim Wenders.
