Cocteau Twins singer Liz Fraser has written the music for a new drama based on the work of HG Wells.
However, there are, it seems, no plans for the soundtrack to the Sky Arts series at present.
Fraser, along with husband Damon Reece out of Spiritualised, worked on the music for The Nightmare Worlds Of HG Wells, her first full-length piece since the Cocteaus split in 1998.
Aside from a couple of singles – 2000’s ‘Underwater’ and ‘Moses’ in 2009 – although she has worked recorded with Massive Attack, The Future Sound Of London and Yann Tiersen. Fraser also composed for The Lord Of The Rings and Cruel Intentions, but the new series will be the first time she and Reece have worked together on a full-length soundtrack.
The Nightmare Worlds Of HG Wells is comprised of four films based on stories by HG Wells, with a cast including Ray Winstone and Michael Gambon. It starts on Sky Arts on January 28 at 9pm.
