Word podcast 299 – Oscar-winning composer and arranger Anne Dudley on being the industry’s go-to woman

In a departure from our usual way of doing things we were delighted to welcome Art Of Noise-nik, ABC arranger and purveyor of fine soundtrack music for everything from “Poldark” to “The Hustle” Anne Dudley to talk about a career that has been largely spent behind the scenes.

Subjects covered include: the surprising things you can learn from working with people with no musical talent, why everything in a film is provisional, how to suggest a chord to Paul McCartney, the uncanny ear of George Michael and what it’s like to stand in front of an orchestra with a baton. Plus, for the first time ever, we’re delighted to introduce actual musical illustrations. Let us know what you think.
