Composer : Ray Russell. For our 100th album I have written a collection of atmospheric drama cues that reflect the current wave of ‘Nordic Noir’ and

Psychological / Pathological crime series. As you may know I have scored many programs that are of this nature and I think I hold the record of seeing more dead bodies on screen than any other composer!

I really enjoyed making this album and I have worked hard on the compositions and the sounds to make them as original as possible while reflecting my initial inspirations. You can find out more about my history as a

composer and a musician here - http://www.madeupmusic.co.uk/composers/ray-russell  and at my website - http://rayrussell.co.uk/?page_id=9

See you all at N.A.B. next April.
