THE SILENT PIANIST SPEAKS
"...the Doyen of silent film accompanists..." Torin Douglas Today Programme - BBC Radio 4 "Brand's skill and charisma as a performer are unquestionable."
"This is a show which is never dull and you are in the company of a master of art and technique."
"Brand's improvised piano playing elevates silent movies from crude slapstick to subtle ballet."
Unmade Movie Themes
Unmade Movie ThemesFinally, my biggest lockdown project hits the streets, courtesy of Faber Music, Altitude X Faber and BMG:
Unmade Movie Themes is my first library album, production music briefed to be reminiscent of Pixar film scores, piano-led but with a mix of live virtuoso soloists and digital instruments superbly mastered by Thomas Hewitt-Jones.
May not yet be up in all regions of the Globe but getting there. Godspeed to it, and anybody looking for music for their next huge film/TV/advert please give it a listen.
Oh, and have a listen anyway, its nice background.
"One of the great movie-going events of the year was the screening at the Barbican (Piccadilly) with Neil Brand's bluesy new score played live."
Philip French The Observer - June 2004'Above all else, Brand’s score has breathed new life into an already outstanding piece of work. He, along with the combined efforts of Brock and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, has taken each of the film’s signature themes and developed them to an unprecedented degree.
At times humorous and sweet, at others threatening and frightening, Blackmail, with this score, is surely as powerful and effective as any of Hitchcock’s most acclaimed achievements.'
