about

Completed in March 2012 Frank is a film directed by British artist Richard Heslop. We've been friends for around 30+ years, but rarely actually worked together. Richard worked with Derek Jarman on the seminal videos of The Smiths, as well as working with the band 23 Skidoo on all their visuals, and directing promo videos for The Shamen, New Order, Laibach, Queens of the Stone Age, Happy Mondays, and many more.

Frank is a darkly surreal and often unsettling film, almost disgusting at points, but also tender and moving. Richard invited me to write a series of piano pieces as well as some more textural and rhythmic parts for the film. Unfortunately for budgetary reasons they ran out of money, a familiar story for indie films, and so much of the music was left out for licensing reasons. No-one has ever heard this very music and thought it might be of interest to share it with a wider audience here.

Some of my music can be heard in the film, which you can watch in full for free here
