We spoke to Ian during the 2019-20 Coronavirus pandemic and here is what he had to say:
" Dear FFT&M.Journal, Music and reading are powerful companions in such a time of global despair and individual isolation. I am thankful to feature in your magazine and I ask that you and your readers join me in discovering, listening and purchasing music in support of your favourite artists and other newly found musicians and composers during this truly uncertain time for the film and music industry."
Ian Arber is a film and television composer with a growing portfolio of work across a variety of genres. He is best known for his work on The BBC Proms Theme (2019) which was the first time a composer had been officially commissioned to write this particular theme and was exclusively recorded at Maida Vale Studios with the BBC Concert Orchestra. Ian also co-scored BBC One 6-part Thriller ‘The Capture’ with Blur’s Dave Rowntree. In 2018, Ian scored series 2 of Netflix's 'Medici', in addition to Paolo Buonvino's themes from series 1. He also scored 'Sisters of the Wilderness' which won 'Best Feature' at the Durban Film Festival qualifying the documentary for Academy Award contention. After scoring over 30 films, Ian’s big break came in 2015 assisting composer Joe Kraemer on his score for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. He assisted Joe throughout writing, preparation and recording of the score. Shortly after this, he scored the coming-of-age feature film Scott and Sid which had a theatrical release and zombie-horror 'Redcon-1', which premiered at the Raindance Film Festival. He ended 2018 scoring documentaries ‘Hitsville: The Making of Motown’ produced by Fulwell 73 and Berry Gordy, and also the above featured, award winning ‘Show Me The Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall’ which premiered at SXSW and won the audience choice award at SFFF.
Ian is bringing an up-to-date and unique compositional style to each one of his projects, testing limits by incorporating rare and exotic sounds and instruments. Not only is he commended for using his cello for conspicously melodic phrases throughout his scores, but also the use of other unique, intricate percussive and atmospheric elements. Because of this expertise in music comprehension, we learn even more about legendary music photographer and godfather of rock ‘n’ roll photography, Jim Marshall than we knew before in this documentary and soundtrack. Jim had extended access to numerous musicians through the 1960s and 1970s and was chief photographer at Woodstock. Ian perfectly captures and amplifies the many deeply moving and unforgetable moments that highlight Jim's notable career.
