    Some of my own music.

    Hi,

    A few of you asked to hear some of my own music. These tracks are all excerpts from a BBC series I worked on last year that\'s due to go out some time in april. It\'s called \'Peter Ackroyd\'s London\' and is based on the author\'s book \'London\' - I can best describe it as an idiosyncratic look at the city. These cues are performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra and it\'s important to point out that they all take their form from the picture - in other words, they\'re not completely self contained pieces. In places the Producers wanted a filmic sound, suggesting John Williams (see \'Spring-heeled Jack\'), but elsewhere they gave me a free rein. I wrote over 2 hours of music so it was hard to decide which to post . Hope you like them.

    Here are some Midi Oldies. These were produced four years ago using a sample library mixture of what was around then and my own recorded samples. Oh and all on four Emu Samplers with a combined memory of 412 megs(!).

    They\'re all great, Andy! Are you sure the last two aren\'t real too? Terrific work! I want the CD!
    I know you did something for Atmosphere. Do you, by any chance, know Anthony Phillips? He once was my hero with his album \'The Geese and the Ghost\'.

    Very enjoyable.

    I\'ll keep my eyes open for the series when it appears.

    I know the name - he\'s an important writer for Atmosphere, but haven\'t ever met him.

    Thanks,

    Since I asked you, with others, to post some of your original work, I have to say I\'m glad I did.

    Cheers Andy

    Wow, great stuff. I particularly enjoyed the Lamento, I liked the use of the gong. Very spooky...
