Our resident composer, The Backstar, has been working hard creating ‘mood pieces’ for Féileacán based on first reading the script. 80’s synth influences abound, including John Carpenter’s films, Vangelis’ Blade Runner soundtrack and Trevor Horn’s production on albums such as Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s classic, ‘Welcome to the Pleasuredome’ We’re excited to share his first piece here.
