Showreel 2016

A selection of our work. We’ve stripped out the voice-over and SFX (apart from in the Ford advert), so you can hear the music in all its […ahem] glory.


John Lewis – The Bear and the Hare

James from Component was approached by the producer and musician Paul Beard to provide the string arrangement for his version of Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ – the soundtrack to the highly anticipated John Lewis Christmas 2013 advertising campaign. The simple, delicate and sparkly arrangement was recorded in London at British Grove Studios while James directed the session live from his Hong Kong studio.

For Team Saatchi and Crush. Directed by Tim Pope.
