In conversation with Soho Radio’s Sukie Smith:
“Oscar nominated composer Gary Yershon speaks about the sound of East London , spatial sound and how he visualises sound to compose ,which is the most unexpected and creative process I have ever heard .
This episode is the true essence of this program, exploring the collaboration in an imagination of sound and vision, to make it possible to write his astonishing music for films including Mister Turner , Topsy Turvy and theatre productions for amongst many others, the RSC and the National Theatre.
I met Gary at a casting for a Phyllida Lloyd play at Bristol Old Vic , I remember him willing me( unsuccessfully) to be what was needed for the production as I played a melancholy version of “To a Wild Rose” on my flute … and then again for Mike Leighs Topsy Turvy where I sang Tit Willow at the top of my voice and got the job playing Sullivans maid Clotilde .. yes. I did .
This is such a magical hour.”
