Stock Music track: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (P Curran)

One of the more sombre and humbling of carols that is played on an atmospheric Roland D50 synth and tubular bells that then builds up a little as the track moves along, with the addition of a church organ and a synth choir.

About the Artist
Philip Curran Philip Curran

Krull, Lord Of The Rings, Batman Begins, Serenity, Crash.... James Horner, Howard Shore, Hans Zimmer, David Newman, Mark Isham & John Williams.... Just a handful of films and their composers whom have been a great inspiration and influence on my life as a composer.

I used to play lead guitar in a rock band but we weren't progressing quick enough so, in 2007, after graduating from Napier University with a degree in Music, I decided to go solo and write music for films. Best decision I have ever made!

I now write in my own home grown studio, working long hours with nothing but me, my guitar, some paper and a computer. Heaven! Along the way, I've composed music for TV commercials, documentaries, corporate videos & short films. But of all the different forms of media I write for, feature films has to be my favourite. I'm a massive fan of films and music, so it's the perfect combination for me. I believe that music has the power to make an average film good, a good film great and a great film even greater!

You know that tingling down the spine feeling you sometimes get when you watch a movie or something on television? Whenever possible, I always try to create that feeling when writing to picture. Check my music out!

Me & My Music:

When I compose music to picture, my first thoughts are usually; what style and what instruments will compliment the picture best. The next step is to grab a coffee and start writing themes & melodies, which is the foundation of any music. I usually like to "hear" the melody, rather than play it, as your fingers can fall into patterns, or you can be limited to your technical ability on an instrument. So I try to hear what it would sound like in my head, then write it out. The rest is easy, I just write till I finish it.
