Something a bit different this morning. When we were up at The Byre studio in Scotland for the first time, we ended up making some strange music mostly based around hitting things and singing. And striking matches. This is one product of that. It ended up on this album, called Strike:
Today’s track is a cue from the funnest action score you’ve never heard. Agent Crush. Theme by David Arnold, score by me. The film’s not been released yet, which is a real shame as we threw everything musically we had at it! It’s like a bond score after too much coffee. With puppets.
Check out the trailer here, and, one day, Agent Crush may emerge …
Track for today is a little edit of some of the main themes from Wild Child, a lovely teen film starring Emma Roberts I scored a few years ago. It was a real pleasure to work with the director Nick Moore, who made Horrid Henry the Movie last year too, as we’d been music editor and film editor on Love Actually together. He’s a great guy.
This suite of themes includes the opening ‘Mum’s theme’, a sequence called Pranks, then the big finish. There was a bigger budget on this one, so everything’s done for real in Abbey Road with a decent sized orchestra. Recorded and mixed by the amazing Andrew Dudman.
