In this week’s episode of Sync Music Matters I’m talking to multi award winning composer, artist and producer Hannah Peel

Last year Hannah Peel won the Ivor Novello Best TV Soundtrack award for her score to Sky’s Midwich Cuckoos starring Keely Hawes.

Having previously won awards with the Royal Television Society and Music Producers Guild

She was Nominated for an Emmy for work on the documentary Games of Thrones – The Last Watch and is a regular collaborator with Paul Weller

She is currently collaborating with Anne Nikitin.

Also dabbles in a bit of theatre including productions at Sadler’s Wells and as if that weren’t enough, she also presents the BBC radio 3 show Night Tracks

Often inspired by the connections between science and music, her solo record career includes the shortlisted 2021 Mercury Music Prize electronic album, Fir Wave; 2016’s Awake But Always Dreaming, which became an ode to her grandmother’s mind as she lived with dementia; and connecting our brain neurons to stars in our solar system, the space-themedMary Casio: Journey to Cassiopeia, scored for synthesisers and a 30 piece colliery brass band.

A regular collaborator with Paul Weller, in 2018 she conducted and wrote all the orchestral arrangements for his shows at London’s Royal Festival Hall and contributed to his new no.1 album ‘On Sunset’. A year later Peel composed and recorded the soundtrack for Game of Thrones: The Last Watch which earned her an 2019 Emmy nomination for ‘Outstanding Music Composition For A Documentary Series Or Special (Original Dramatic Score)’.
