about

This soundtrack, to the sell out Edinburgh Fringe show of the same name, was described by The Scotsman as a "jarring, provocative...oppressive score which fills the room with dread", although it is not without its moments of quiet beauty.

Gary Bamford's fourth release is a slightly edited version of his soundtrack to the Wrong Shoes Theatre Company's devised piece An Account Of A Savage, which tells the story of a feral child's experiences when she is found and 'studied' by two doctors. Gary collaborated with the cast when composing the music and much of the score has its roots in improvisations that took place between musician and performers quite early in the process. Stylistically, it ranges from dark, loop/delay-based soundscapes, through evocative melodic lullabies, to guitar-based, chaotic rock. An Account Of A Savage was performed, recorded, mixed and edited by Gary, with mastering by Gary and Stuart Rowe (Andy Partridge/XTC, The Future Sound Of London/Amorphous Androgynous, Shriekback, Paul Weller, Peter Blegvad etc.) of Lighterthief Studios.
