They composed the score for Michael Winterbottom’s film, A Mighty Heart (2007), award winning film Road To Guantanamo (2006), Nick Broomfield’s feature film Ghosts (2006) and a controversial American thriller Hard Candy (2005). They have also written numerous TV scores including New Europe with Michael Palin (BBC), Great Britons (BBC), Monarchy (Channel 4) and The Victoria Cross Heroes (Five).
Harry Escott is a composer and arranger and his work spans a wide variety of music for film, TV, theatre and the concert platform, including commissions for Westminster Cathedral Choir, The Fitzwilliam String Quartet and The Chamber Ensemble of London.
Molly Nyman worked as a composer on a wide range of live and pre-recorded events such as a series of shorts for Channel 4 and a highly acclaimed set of pieces for Brit Art events in galleries throughout London.
