Jude Neanor: The Journey Collection

Sleeve notes: This collection of music culminates with the track ‘A Hero’s Welcome’, a piece which was designed to underscore the re-entry of Apollo 11 as it returned to Earth. It was inspired by the music for the film ‘Deep Impact’ by James Horner. I have used the piano motif rom the cue ‘The Wedding’ and repurposed it in oboe as the opening theme in this piece. I have also taken inspiration from the dissonant string ostinato in the cue ‘The Comet’s Sunrise,’ and used this in the second section.

New recording facilities

Thanks to the generosity of the Darrick Wood School Parent Staff Association DWS Audio has been able to purchase and construct a Studiobricks sound isolation booth. The old pop up DIY studio served us well but provided a limited recording window. These new facilities should allow us greater flexibility to record content and improve the quality of our sound recordings.

Work has also begun on a new serial drama that we hope to launch very soon. In addition, DWS Audio will be posting content on our very own YouTube channel, AMPLIFiED. Watch this space for more announcements.
