Orchestrating for Ruth is always a thrill and this time – our third outing together – I was also on Prophet 6 and various other vibey sonics duties. Much less spooky than her last project The Sister, but just as much tension in the score. The action also revolves around a family drama and there was a warm soulful aspect to the music. Another lockdown production, with strings played by Nick Holland and Phil Holland and guitars by Aaron Jones.
