MICHAEL PRICE

Michael Price's first real composing was for contemporary dance choreographers over 20 years ago. Price loved the freedom and creativity of that world, but when he was offered a chance to be the assistant to the late Michael Kamen on the film score for Paramount picture Event Horizon in 1996, it seemed too good an opportunity to miss.
 
Michael has enjoyed musically being part of some great film projects over the years including the Academy Award winning feature Children of Men, the Lord of the Rings trilogy and James Bond: Quantum of Solace. But he now feels with this solo project that he's 'coming home'. One of the first major pieces Price wrote for dance was for string quartet and soprano, and being able to reconnect with that sound world is something wonderful, says Price.

'The results are simply beautiful. There's a classical heritage on show, but alongside this Michael Price has a gift for simple melodies which pierce through the veneer of the everyday.' CLASH
