Episode 285: Will & Arthur Sharpe On The Music Of The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain

Jan 01, 2022, 02:32 PM

Our first guests of 2022 are two brothers who've formed a formidable creative partnership since being given the opportunity to shine.

Will and Arthur Sharpe have taken on directorial and compositional duties on several joint-projects, with The Electrical Life of Louis Wain their latest collaboration. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy, the biopic tells the story of the eccentric artist of the title, who had a particular - and many would say peculiar - affiliation with cats ...

While Will co-wrote and directed the film, Arthur provided the music, and as always you'll hear plenty of it throughout the conversation.
