Alexander McQueen

Spring/Summer collection 2020 Paris Fashion Week

Isobel was commissioned by Sarah Burton to score Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection for Paris Fashion Week.  The piece of music was adapted from ‘Arise’ and ‘Last Words of M’ from Isobel’s album, ‘Music for Strings’.

See highlights from the Paris Fashion Week show below:

Black Mirror

Isobel has composed the music for one of Black Mirror’s most recent feature length episodes for Netflix.  “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too”.

Cast: Miley Cyrus, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport

Written by Charlie Brooker
Produced by Nick Pitt
Directed by Anne Sewitsky

Fleabag 2

“…Probably up with the best of TV comedy-drama entire.”
Lucy Mangan, The Guardian

“If you baulk at black humour about miscarriages, you won’t like Fleabag, no matter how many Baftas it swipes. And that’s a pity, because it means missing Olivia Colman at her phenomenal comic best.”
Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail

“Like the very best comedy, I find it almost unbearable to watch. I love Fleabag, but I would love it just as much without the jokes – though the jokes ease the pain down.”
Tanya Gold, The Telegraph

The Son at The Kiln

Isobel composed the music for Florian Zeller’s ‘The Son’ at the Kiln Theatre

Directed by Michael Longhurst
Cast: Amanda Abbingdon, John Light, Laurie Kynaston, Amaka Okafor, Martin Turner and Oseloka Obi.

The Times: ★★★★★ “Superbly acted, with a rhythm that keeps you on the edge of your seat, this final part of Florian Zeller’s trilogy is the most powerful of all.”

The Telegraph: ★★★★★ “To my mind, The Son is every bit the equal of The Father and, eschewing the riddling quality found in earlier works, in some ways it even eclipses it; the surgical precision of the writing achieves a devastating visceral impact.”

The Stage★★★★ The Son captivates in its enveloping feeling of inevitability, something that’s aided by Isobel Waller-Bridge’s disconcertingly ominous music. While it’s clear exactly what’s going to happen, as with all classic tragedies, everyone is powerless to prevent it. Zeller makes a virtue out of this predictability and the terrifying realisation that screaming louder won’t stop the runaway train.”

Isobel is currently working on The ABC Murders for BBC & Amazon.  The 3x60m BBC/Mammoth Screen drama series stars John Malkovich in a reimagining of Agatha Christie’s acclaimed Hercule Poirot novel.
