Silva Screen will shortly be releasing the music to the centrepiece of Channel 4’s winter drama – Red Riding. The trilogy of interlinking films are based on David Peace’s crime thrillers set against the background of Yorkshire in the 1970s and 1980s, a time of fear, distrust and the grisly reign of the Ripper murders. The three films titled 1974, 1980 and 1983 feature music from some of the best composers from the film and TV world. Adrian Johnston has been BAFTA nominated for The Lost Prince, Tipping The Velvet, Perfect Strangers and Our Mutual Friend and won an Emmy for Shackleton. He has written for over 20 feature films including last year’s lavish production of Brideshead Revisited. Dickon Hinchliffe was a founder member of The Tindersticks, his multi-instrumentalist talents and string arrangements adding a lush sheen to their unique sound. Barrington Pheloung is a composer, conductor and performer of international renown with an immense catalogue of film and TV music. He wrote perhaps one of the most instantly identifiable themes in small screen history, Inspector Morse, as well as all the music for the 33 episode series.
