Cluny Strachan: Composer for Film and Television
"Cluny Strachan's score, oscillating between dreamy chorales of a Howard Skempton and the incessant rhythms of Goldie, bespeaks a composer who knows what he wants and is happy to plunder as many different types of music as he needs to get it." Robert Dawson Scott, The Guardian

Ob-Doc Music – Ye’d Scarce Tell Wha Had Wan

This soundtrack is one of a new thread in my work inspired by 4.1 Miles by Daphne Matziaraki, an observational documentary about a coast guard captain on a small Greek island who is suddenly charged with saving thousands of refugees from drowning at sea. The music by William Ryan Fritch and additional music by Thanos Mikroutsikos is exquisite, and well used.
