London Sinfonietta present the world premiere screening of ANIL SOOD by Alys Scott-Hawkins.
The film, accompanied by my score A-Listers, tells the story of Southampton local Anil Sood. Anil is well-known in Southampton for running a dance music record shop and drum’n’bass events in the 1990s and 2000s. Through an interview Anil tells the stories of highs and lows; most recently having to close his latest business during the pandemic. The film brings together my music, archive material, interview footage and animation to interpret Anil’s story.
Also on the bill is my ‘Too Many Sweets (when Dorothy met Blake) for toy pianos and electronics.
