Words and Pictures

This new film, for which I have composed the original score, is directed by my dear friend Fred Schepisi and stars Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche. It is a lovely romantic comedy with a serious message about the value of art and literature, and by implication, all creative matters, to our lives.

The score, written mainly for small orchestra, was conducted by another mate, Ben Northey, who is regarded as one of the rising stars of the orchestral scene. It’s always good to work with a conductor who has first hand experience of jazz; Ben was a saxophone player, and gets the rhythmic subtleties and shifts which make jazz music what it is.

The score also features a closing titles song set to beautiful words by the film’s writer Gerry DiPiego, sung by Melbourne singer Gian Slater.

‘Words and Pictures’  was released in the US in May, with Australia following in June.
