The Space presents a special evening at the prestigious Duke of York’s cinema. Briggy Smale welcomes two of the UK's leading film composers, David Arnold and Anne Dudley.

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

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

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.

Composer, arranger, producer and performer, Anne Dudley is a multi-talented and critically-acclaimed musician.
She has composed and produced soundtracks for dozens of award-winning films and TV shows, and was a founding member of the Art of Noise. She has contributed string arrangements to many classic albums including ABC's The Lexicon of Love and Robbie Williams latest, Reality Killed the Video Star.
Over the course of a long and varied career, she has won an Oscar, a Grammy, a Brit and most proudly of all, the Billboard award for best new Black Act for the Art of Noise! Anne was recently nominated for the 2009 Ivor Novello award for her score to Trial and Retribution.
Her credits as an arranger include collaborating with Pet Shop Boys, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Stephen Fry, Tom Jones, Will Young, Annie Lennox, Malcolm McClaren, Bill Bailey and Sam Taylor Wood.
