Dame Evelyn Glennie has a huge international reputation and following as a solo artist: the world’s first full-time classical percussion soloist. Her percussion-based scores for film and television show extraordinary flair for underscoring mood and drama. Credits include seven series of Lynda La Plante’s Trial and Retribution, Bramwell, the William Boyd-scripted and directed feature film The Trench and, most recently, Golf in the Kingdom (2010), a US-feature film based on Michael Murphy’s novel. Also notable are the soundtracks she created for a series of Mazda car commercials in the mid-‘90s, which spawned a host of imitations. Evelyn has also created many library tracks for Audio Network PLC which have been widely used in a diverse range of productions.
