30 years of award winning scores

When we started out in 1990 composing chip music scores for SWIV and Aladdin on the Amiga, we could hardly have imagined how far we would come. 

Thirteen years later we found ourselves with a BAFTA nomination as a result of our work on the epic orchestral score for Sony’s Primal – one of the first games to use a full, live-recorded symphony orchestra. We’ve worked on some amazing titles along the way, including the highly acclaimed MediEvil. We provided the music for every version of the game, turning our original synthesised score into a live orchestral recording (for MediEvil Resurrection) and making it fully interactive for the PS4 remake MediEvil 2019.

These days we’re experienced in scoring for all media, including film and TV. Credits to date include The Hatton Garden Job, the BAFTA-winning Armchair Detectives and the satisfyingly on-topic Dead Pixels for E4 (a sitcom about obsessive gamers…)
