Although the music I make is electronic and undeniably pop, one of my musical mentors is the film composer John Barry, who passed away earlier this year. Barry’s legacy of film scores is diverse, but he is most remembered for this 007 films with the 1969 On Her Majesty’s Secret Service being his and my favourite. A perfect mix of drama, beauty and sadness.
