Season 4, Episode 3,   Jan 26, 2023, 08:00 AM

In this week's episode we spoke to award winning composer Ilan Eshkeri, who joined us to talk about composing for film, video games and TV, as well as how he came to create his live show Space Station Earth with British Astronaut Tim Peake.

From Ilan's first big break, on Matthew Vaughn's Layer Cake, to the importance of having a great relationship with the Director and how Ilan starts the composing process we talk through Ilan’s journey in composing and his love for story-telling through music. Ilan has composed music for many award-winning films including Layer Cake, Still Alice, Stardust, The Young Victoria and Shaun The Sheep.  We find out why he loves working with Ralph Fiennes, with whom he has composed the scores to all three films that Ralph has directed.

Ilan also composed music for several video games including Sony PlayStation’s blockbuster video game Ghost of Tsushima and The Sims 4. He has worked on TV shows including David Attenborough's A Perfect Planet and the Netflix series Captains.
Ilan's live show in conjunction with British astronaut Tim Peake, entitled Space Station Earth, is touring the US in 2023. Check out their website for info here.
