Jim's cross genre and intercultural understanding has proven a great advantage on projects such as the BIFA and BAFTA award winning film ‘Festival’. Jim took the Drambuie Pipe Band to Seville and put them together with an eighty piece Semana Santa band to record his score for the movie. Check out this video on the process.

Jim is represented for film and television music by Air Edel. You can also contact Jim directly to discuss ideas for your production.
