I’m not short of lucky breaks – and this week brought in a chance to work with both Badly Drawn Boy and the Manchester Camerata in the same session. The gig was a soundtrack for a short movie promoting cultural breaks in the North West UK and used a Badly Drawn Boy song (You Were Right) that evolved from a guitar-vocal performance to a full string arrangement. There were strings on the original album version but I needed to build some more symphonic lines in, to suit an -in-vision shot of the Manchester Camerata. The session (at Blue Print) was a joy – great performers from the pop and classical worlds. The movie will be released as a short in cinemas.
