March 2012: We’ve just finished composing the music for a Channel 4 documentary called, Gok Wan – Made In China. Travelling back to his ancestral home, Gok explores the largely unseen world of Chinese mass production. Visiting the village his father grew up in for the first time, Gok’s journey is also a discovery into how China now produces one in every four man-made objects on the planet. Ultraviolet produced the music using a variety of authentic Chinese instruments including Ruan (Moon Guitar), Guzheng (Zither) and Xiao flute.
February 2012: Once again, Ultraviolet were asked to edit the music at Burberry’s Autumn/Winter catwalk show earlier this month.

December 2011: We’ve been busy composing music for a BBC documentary called ‘Deaf Teen, Hearing World’. The hour-long film takes an insightful look into the world of young deaf people, challenging preconceived notions of what it means to have a disability. Ultraviolet’s brief was to compose a score fusing music with sound design, conveying a sense of sonic isolation that hopefully brings us closer to the subjects of the film. Deaf Teen was directed by Claire Braden and produced by Century Films.

There will also be a special Christmas edition of the show. Man Lab is directed by Tom Whitter and produced by Plum Pictures.

August 2011: Ultraviolet recently supervised the music for a new BBC series called, World’s Most Dangerous Roads, choosing tracks for this gripping 3-part series, in which celebrities undertake journeys along some of the world’s most perilous routes. Watching two people on a long drive would normally be tedious – except these journeys are treacherous and unpredictable, with some surprisingly emotional outcomes. The first programme follows Charlie Boorman and Sue Perkins as they drive along Alaska’s notorious Dalton Highway. World’s Most Dangerous Roads is produced by Renegade Pictures and will be transmitted on BBC2 next month.
July 2011: We’ve just completed the music for an innovative documentary about Portuguese footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo.
