Manners McDade Composers to Feature in ComposHER Concert

Manners McDade Composers to Feature in ComposHER Concert

Taking place in June, ComposHER is a new concert highlighting, showcasing and celebrating women composers for film, TV and video games, whilst encompassing the diverse nature of the British industry.

Following statistics reported earlier this year that out of the 250 top films in 2018, 94% were scored by men (New York Times, Jan 2019), this concert also aims to inspire the next generation of composers, tackling current inequality in the field of media composers. The musical genres of the performances will also vary to feature classical composition, vocal performance, alternative and electronic music and ensemble performances, performed by the London Contemporary Orchestra. 

The full showcase includes: Carly Paradis, Jessica Jones, Anne Nikitin, Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch, Kate Simko, Jessica Curry, Jocelyn Pook, Nainita Desai, Imogen Heap, Alev Lenz, Claire M Singer and Amelia Warner.

Nainita Desai

Nainita is a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit (2016/17), with credits including Neil Biswas' Darkness Visible and the brilliant The Confessions Of Thomas Quick (Film4/BFI). Recent projects include Bafta 2018 Nominees Raped: My Story and Catching A Killer (C4), landmark series Extraordinary Rituals and Earth’s Natural Wonders for the BBC NHU and the prestigious BBC Royal Wedding Meghan and Harry title theme.

Jessica Jones (selected by the the NFTS to represent their alumni)

Jessica scored the BBC’s The Ruth Ellis Files as well as composing additional music for Tribeca nominated Serengeti Rules. In 2016, she co-founded AUDIUM POST, an award winning sound and music post production company. Most recently she scored the BBC series Joanna Lumley’s Silk Road Adventure, and composed additional music for Netflix hit The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch

Emilie has just finished scoring Sarah Gavron's upcoming gritty London feature Girl Untitled, Harry Wootliff's romance Only You set for theatrical release in July, and is currently working on her 3rd album for Fat Cat Records. Her past projects also include HBO short film Love NY and commissions for the V&A Museum.

Kate Simko

Kate’s latest project is a feature-length score for 137 Films, whose past PBS documentary The Atom Smashers also featured Kate’s soundtrack. The film We Believe in Dinosaurs is represented by CAA, with plans to release the soundtrack on Kate’s label, London Electronic Recordings.
