Jocelyn Pook

Jocelyn Pook composes music for film, television, theatre, dance and the
concert platform. Since graduating in 1983 from the Guildhall School of
Music and Drama, where she studied the viola, she has also toured and
recorded extensively with many leading names in rock, pop and classical
music, both as a soloist and with her ensemble the Electra Strings. She has
collaborated with a diverse range of artists, including The Communards,
Laurie Anderson, Massive Attack, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Peter Gabriel.

Her original scores for Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and Laurent
Cantet's Time Out (L¹emploi du temps) have established her as a highly
original composer of screen music. Dionysus, the first track on Untold
Things, her most recent CD, features in Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York.
During the last two years has scored several French feature films including
Comment j'ai tue mon pere, directed by Anne Fontaine and La Repentie,
directed by Laetitia Masson.

Jocelyn co-wrote with Harvey Brough the music for the recent BBC2 10-part
drama series In A Land of Plenty. For S4C, she wrote the music for Saints
and Sinners, a 6-part documentary series about the history of the papacy,
shown in more than twenty countries.

Her 1994 piece Blow the Wind / Pie Jesu, a setting of Kathleen Ferrier's
Blow the Wind Southerly against the contemporary voice of Melanie
Pappenheim, became a crossover hit when it was used by Orange for their TV
advertising campaign in 1997.

The Jocelyn Pook Ensemble has presented performances of repertoire from
Untold Things and from her film scores in Germany, France and Italy, touring
the UK on the Contemporary Music Network in 2001. Her most recent
music-theatre works, Speaking in Tunes and Portraits in Absentia, have also
been toured in the UK.

Recent notable commissions for dance include Phantasmatron for the Shobana
Jeyasingh Dance Company and Requiem for Darsan Singh Buller performed by the
Phoenix Dance Company.
