Tom Hodge is a familiar name in the advertising industry having worked on prestigious campaigns for Audi, Cadbury’s, Coca-Cola, McDonalds and Nike (among many, many other clients – more than 200 over the last decade) all benefiting from his finely-honed skill of writing concise, memorable music to brief.
Outside the world of advertising, Tom has written themes for several television programmes including The Campaign Show (a daily political digest broadcast during the 2010 General Election) for the BBC, and Seven Days (a weekly programme of arts and entertainment news for London) for LWT, and he has also composed music for the film Faintheart and written the score for Pimp, released by Premiere Pictures in 2010. This year, Tom scored the UK indie feature Common People for Stewart Alexander and Claire Skinner.
Tom also writes music as one half (with collaborator Franz Kirmann), of Piano Interrupted. Signed to label Denovali, their most recent release is Two By Four.
“This London-based quartet fuse Tom Hodge’s piano melodies with electronica, strings and drums over thirty minutes of intriguing instrumentals. Though there are hints of the currently burgeoning neo-classical scene, echoes of Portico Quartet and Cinematic Orchestra emphasise their jazzy leanings, while Franz Kirmann’s glitchy tinkering ensure a suitably peaceful outcome.”
