 "Happy belated new year. I took the opportunity to attend my first Berlinale Film Festival this February, and found Berlin a lovely place, cultural and artistic. Whilst there I visited the Jewish Museum as part of my research for the concerto. The museum involves a 'tour' which is at least an hour long and is a very special and wonderful tribute to the Jewish people. I have found a great deal of admiration for the German people too in the way that they continue to face these horrors of the Nazi regime with openness, honesty and dignity." CB


Chris has completed the teaser music for the feature film, Skinny Buddha, a romantic comedy from Monk3ys Ink Films, directed by Drew Cullingham. He is currently scoring The First Film, a documentary, directed by David Nicholas Wilkinson.
