Two men. Over 35 years of collective experience. Film scores. McDonald's jingles. Silly tracks for games. Accomplished, intense, awe-inspiring orchestral scores. And, to add to the confusion, a logo depicting a fried egg. Clearly, there is nobody quite like Bob and Barn.
Bob & Barn were exemplary production partners on Brink. They proved time and again to be genuine collaborators, highly creative and ingenious, but also keen to share ideas and consistently responsive to our feedback and suggestions. It’s rare to encounter allies so sympathetic and creative and disciplined. No deadline dismayed them, no last-minute demand confounded them. Bob and Barn made everything easy for us, delivered outstanding results and made a massive and positive impact on the game. We’d work with them again in a heartbeat.
Paul Arnold (AKA Bob) is a classically trained musician, gifted at the guitar and trumpet, although not usually at the same time. He has an MSc in Music Technology and a BA (Hons) in Music and Computing.
Andrew Barnabas (AKA Barn) is also classically trained, and rather good at tinkling the ivories and more recently being a bit percussive. He has a BA (Hons) in Popular Music.
Together we have over 35 years of professional experience as composers and we've been working together as Bob and Barn for more than ten years. During that time we’ve amassed a plethora of technical skills in all areas of composition and built two top-end composition facilities in the heart of Cambridge.
