Jocelyn PookJocelyn Pook

 

Jocelyn Pook is a multi award-winning composer who writes music for film, television, theatre, dance and the concert platform. Since graduating 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. She has collaborated with a diverse range of artists, including The Communards, Laurie Anderson, Massive Attack, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Peter Gabriel. Jocelyn’s scores for Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut and Laurent Cantet’s Time Out (L’emploi du temps) established her as a highly original composer of screen music. Recent film scores have included Michael Radford’s The Merchant of Venice and Sarah Gavron’s adaptation of Monica Ali’s award-winning book Brick Lane.

  

She has also enjoyed many collaborations with choreographers writing a series of works for DV8 Physical Theatre in the early 1990s and more recently for the Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company and the Phoenix Dance Theatre. Her music for theatre productions include Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan starring Anne-Marie Duff at the National Theatre in London which won Best Revival and Best Sound Design at the Laurence Olivier Awards 2008.

 

In 2002 she was commissioned by the BBC Proms to write a new work with Poet Laureate Andrew Motion for The King's Singers. Future projects include commissions for the Hilliard Ensemble, Andreas Scholl, the choreographer Russell Maliphant and the BBC Concert Orchestra.

 

  

‘A magnificent score written for [Eyes Wide Shut] by Jocelyn Pook. It is one of the most varied and compelling in all Kubrick’s work.’ The Economist
