The Space and the Duke of York's present a movie music masterclass with Grammy-winning composer David Arnold and Oscar-winning composer Anne Dudley.

David Arnold and Anne Dudley will discuss their favourite and some classic film music. This will be illustrated with a selection of memorable film scenes, highlighting the power and magic of the combination of film and music, and how the two art forms merge to such great effect.

Our special guests will also demonstrate how they have conceived some of their compositions for film and TV.

DAVID ARNOLD Few British composers have attained such international acclaim as David Arnold. A successful debut with The Young Americans, then sci-fi adventure Stargate led to a role scoring Hollywood blockbuster Independence Day and Danny Boyle’s A Life Less Ordinary. As a lifelong fan of James Bond Arnold had produced an album of 007 theme covers with a range of artists including Chrissie Hynde and Iggy Pop. Praise from composer John Barry for these interpretations led to a commission to write the score for Tomorrow Never Dies. He has scored all of the Bond films since, including Quantum of Solace. Arnold’s career has crossed many genres, from his collaborations with action director Roland Emmerich to his work on Zoolander and award-winning television comedy Little Britain. He recently produced the new and highly acclaimed Shirley Bassey album, The Performance. www.davidarnold.com ANNE DUDLEY Composer, arranger, producer and performer, Anne Dudley is a multi-talented and critically-acclaimed musician.
