This is scheduled for broadcast later-on in the year. Click HERE for more details. Both will be ready to air at film festivals soon. There has also been a lot of action with Garry's back programme catalogue with the following programmes recently being shown here in the UK and other European territories: His work ranges from 30 second television adverts to full length cinematic feature films. We spent a morning with Garry to get to know more about him, how he maintains a busy schedule and how he continues to have a competitive edge in these demanding times for freelancers in the media industry.
This then led to networked programmes for all the major broadcasters. I have my own studio which is capable of producing anything up to 5. I play various instruments and have a live room to record them in. I was classically trained and had very good teachers in harmony and counterpoint, so I am able to use this as a solid musical foundation to produce music quickly that will fulfil the expectations of the client.
You also have to be adaptable and have the ability to follow a brief in pressure situations as sometimes there is only a matter of hours to write, produce and deliver a finished piece of music. It is therefore important to work closely with the client throughout the creative process.
Keeping one step ahead of technology is also imperative as it allows you to create and deliver the music quickly to a high standard at a competitive price. Well, it is important to keep up with the latest software for music making.
For example, if a client sends through a video clip of a film on quicktime that requires music to picture, I can load it into my computer software, write and record the music, and send the picture back to the client with the music added in a matter of hours.
The client can then download it and get a very quick impression of how the music will work to picture. I usually send finished masters via FTP so the client can download it directly to their desktop or the dubbing suite. Signs Of Life for the BBC was a very interesting project because it contained stretches of high end drama which needed music to picture, connected with game sections.
These needed holding music on a loop with introductions and resolves which also needed to tie in with the beginning and end of the surrounding drama sequences. The holding music then had layers of other musical and sound effects and voiceovers which were triggered by the game interaction. This meant that I had to think very carefully about the key of each piece and how it related to the key of the drama or game music before and after it Very complicated, but great fun to see it all come together.
It ran on Flash and really stretched the technology at the time, but just a couple of years later it runs smoothly and fluidly.
