Loved it. Especially the -c- in ‘torren-cial’ and so on. I went to school fast by Canterbury Cathedral and that kind of thing is ingrained in my bones. And as for the second one – whoo-hoo! Four minutes’ walk from my flat, that is!

Haha – brilliant! The back rows of that particularly vintage year of King’s reads like a who’s-who of London’s music scene today. I spy a fresh-faced Ed Gardner and Andrew Kennedy there…
hope all’s well ! x

Hey Nico, just wanted to say that I saw ‘The Reader’ today and thought you did a terrific job with the score. McCarthy got it right, supple and supportive.
I’m wondering how long it took you to compose, seeing as how the film was still being edited in October.
In any case, well done!

I just watched “Choking Man.” What a lovely, gentle, imaginative film. I was interested to learn that the writer/director, Steve Barron, also did the incomparable music video for a-ha’s “Take on Me.”
I will be sure to see “The Reader” as well.

Of course, the British obsession with the weather cannot leave the music scene untouched. Tears For Fears used the BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast to great effect for the b-side of Everybody Wants To Rule The World. In fact, Pharoahs is my favourite TfF track: http://www.last.fm/music/Tears+for+Fears/_/Pharaohs
