Death Of A Gentleman

Work on this feature doc has allowed me in insight into just how long a project of this nature can take. In essence the film makers spent years filming and refining until they'd actually found the film they wanted to make. I came on board in the first year and produced a score for their film working with a long time collaborator, Brian Eno and Sinéad O'Connor guitarist Graham Kearns and featuring Eno/Shriekback/Tom Waits percussionist Martyn Barker. I then went off to work on new projects as the producers continued to film for another two years! The final film features three of my original pieces in the score and has recently won the 2016 Sports Journalists Award for best feature documentary.
