Tom Flint has written a very good article in January's edition of Sound On Sound about arrangers and orchestrators, wihich eloquently describes my role in the music world along with my colleague Sally Herbert
I have just finished working with composer Terry Divine King for whom I orchestrated and conducted a number of library tracks for Audio Network
I, and others, tutored Sir Michael Caine in the basics of orchestral conducting and he does very well in this role in his new film "Youth" where he conducts a forest as well as an orchestra!
I was delighted to hear from The Birmingham Schools Orchestra who have commissioned me to write an 11minute suite based on the Nutracker Suite but using melodies by the Beatles. Hopefully the performance will take place later this year.
It is good to hear that a track I scored the orchestra for, "No Way" by Gilbert OSullivan is getting very good airplay on the radio- he sounds just the same!
NICK'S WORK PROCESS
In the two fields in which I work, pop and film, my work process can vary from one extreme to another. As with all things, information is power, or in my case, information is the key to a successful project. When I am hired, whether as an arranger, an orchestrator or conductor, the amount of information I can get from the client will make my job harder or easier...
