TIM ATACK


Artist


FILM / TV

Tim writes contemporary film/TV music as well as writing, recording and producing songs with various collaborators. It was from working with the singer Des'ree that the song they wrote together "Kissing You" became the love theme for William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (directed by Baz Luhrmann). Early features include Among Giants and Elephant Juice. TV credits include the music for the BBC's BAFTA nominated Much Ado About Nothing and ITV's Quite Ugly One Morning, starring James Nesbitt. He also performed a 'live improvised electronic score' for the BBC's The Quatermass Experiment. More recently Tim composed the scores for The Invention of Lying and Cemetery Junction both written and directed by Ricky Gervais. Tim divides his time mainly between London and Yorkshire where he lives and works in his home studio. Before concentrating on film and tv scores Tim was a touring musician, playing keyboards for artistes such as Des'ree, Brian Ferry and the late Michael Kamen.
