Graham Reynolds
Graham Reynolds

Called “the quintessential modern composer” by the London Independent, Austin-based Graham Reynolds is anything but your stereotypical composer...

Yet he is also Richard Linklater’s (‘Slacker’, ‘Dazed and Confused’, ‘School of Rock’) go-to guy, who said of Reynolds’ ability to score any scene that “he can do anything”. Reynolds has scored films such as ‘Before Midnight’, ‘Bernie’ and ‘A Scanner Darkly’, which was released on vinyl for the first time on Fire in 2017.

Reynolds also creates music for theatre and dance. Along the way he’s grabbed a few gongs on the mantelpiece, he digs crime jazz – nods to the Duke, loves a minor country chord, even wrote a concerto about cog wheels and crank handles.

He likes the tension, as he circumnavigate the boundaries of what and how we should be listening – who else could make ‘Music For Forklift Danceworks’, or re-imagine Hitchcock’s ‘The Lodger’, a tale of murder and suspense set on the foggy streets of ripper-terrorised London, as part of Fire’s Re-Imagined soundtrack series in 2020?

Tickets are £15.00.
