KNOW THE SCORE

george_in_tears.jpg

When emotions are high and those strings kick in we've often found ourselves in floods of George-like tears. (Hey, don't judge us. Everyone's allowed a little cry sometimes.) But it doesn't happen by accident. Richard Wells is the solid gold genius that works tirelessly to create the musical score that toys with our emotions and sends shivers down our spines. We caught up with him for an insight into his creative (and gruelling) world..

So you're the composer for Being Human... what does that mean?
I write all the incidental music for Being Human. Basically anything that is not licensed. In an average episode that's about 20 minutes of music, although in the epic episode 8 I think we are up to 35 minutes.

When do you start planning the music for the series?
For series 2 I started work in October and I finished episode 8 on Friday 19th February. I like to watch the locked cut [a basic edit before special effects are added] as my first experience of an episode. I don't read the scripts in advance. That way I get to feel all the emotions that a normal viewer will go through at least once. Where we put the music is worked out in a "spotting session" between the director the editor and myself. We try very hard not to use music for the sake of it. If it's going to be in there it needs to be doing something emotionally useful.

How do you create the music we hear in the series?
I have a studio near Salisbury where I write, record and mix all the music into several computers. During the course of both series I have used a handful of fantastic live players who have provided a constant flow of weird and wonderful sounds including live percussion, guitars and erhu. Because there isn't much money we can't afford an orchestra, so I have to create that myself. We have also used some other interesting sounds like Giant Panpipes and a keyless piano that was miked up and then smashed to pieces.

In terms of the style the producers, Ross (my excellent Music Supervisor) and myself, decided to go for something that was different from the licensed tracks but as acoustically real as we could make it. There are very few synth sounds in the Being Human score, even though a lot of the acoustic sounds are heavily processed. We have created three separate sound worlds for the vampires, werewolves and ghosts, to help differentiate between them.

Another thing I have tried to do is to get as much contrast into the score as possible. So when we have a sad moment, we push it as far as we can and when we have a violent scene, it's as brutal and horrific as we can make it. There is a harmonic world representing real life and then there is the supernatural world, which in the case of the werewolves and vampires can be horrifically dissonant. It's amazing how much contrast the show can take, but I think that is down to Toby's excellent writing.

What's the hardest part of your job?
Delivering on time. This series has been particularly grueling. In series 1 we had an average of 3 weeks to do an episode and on series 2 since Christmas we have been down to between 1 and 2 weeks, which makes it very hard, particularly if there is a live session, which requires extra time and work. Since December 26th I have had 1 day off and it's been 12-16 hours in the studio every day. When you have a family that's not easy or popular! I love Being Human and all I ask is enough time to make my contribution as good as I can make it. On some other shows the composer gets help, from a music editor or engineer etc but in our case the music department is basically one and occasionally I need sleep!

Do directors ever make you rewrite tracks? If so, does that cause friction?
Because the directors are generally a) too busy to listen to any music before the final mix and b) there isn't any time to change it after, I do very little re-writing. Occasionally I do some the night I get back from the mix, because I'm not happy with a cue.

Luckily, I have enjoyed an immense amount of creative freedom on Being Human, and I think I have had a good relationship with all the directors so far. If I get something wrong emotionally, I'm always happy to re-write it. I've had invaluable support from Matt (Bouch), Rob (Pursey) and Ross and I'm well inside Toby's head these days as I've probably watched Being Human on screen for more hours than anyone in the production. I still love it though! As a result it doesn't go badly wrong very often.

What's your favourite use of music in the episodes we've seen?
I will go for George and Nina on the phone at the end of episode 3 with Lucy's reveal, which was heart breaking and shocking at the same time and the Pressure Chamber in Episode 1 which was great fun. Horror scenes are always a bit of a laugh!

Is there a scene we should look out for in the final episode where the music is really strong?
There is a scene in Episode 8, which is pivotal. I can't tell you what happens but it will make people scream in horror! That's all I can say.

Is there going to be a soundtrack release?
Ross and I are currently working on a score and/or soundtrack release, and we should have some news soon, if anyone is interested...

Finally, do you have any tips or advice for anyone thinking of a job as a composer?
Too much to fit in this blog. If you really are mad enough to want to do it, only do it because you are totally passionate about writing music, don't do it for any other reason, never give up, and one day you may earn a few quid from it!

    music man play a song

  • Comment number 2.

    Ooo. Can't wait for a soundtrack! That would be awesome!

  • Comment number 3.

    2 things one first comment

    two scream in horror a fixed grin of evil delight is now plastered to my face

  • Comment number 4.

    How fascinating. I would definitely be interested in a soundtrack Richard!!

    My favourite incidental piece of your music was at the beginning of ep 5 series 1 during the montage at the beginning of the show with George's voice over - stunning - so hope that's gonna be on it.

  • Comment number 5.

    COOL that'd be awesome. lol i half expected evil mitchell to have his own theme tune like angelus, but i guess it's not on the cards.

    anyway back to babbling wildly about evil mitchell he is amazing, mitchell has a new quote : 'its all good georgie' i know it was creepy but i kind of giggled and kept on pressing rewind. goerges like oh oh big bad john's back in ze house lol

  • Comment number 6.

    Great insight into how all this is put together...we have no idea how this is all done but it sounds very involved and fascinating....I love those acoustic guitar riffs which were played when George made Nina breakfast in bed and in other scenes too...something very touching about those, along with the music used for when Lauren died...dramatic and perfect...

    Thanks for this, Richard, and to you and your team for all the patience and talent and hard work you put into this....we're also looking forward to episode 8 although will be hugely sad when this is all finished...however, series 3 looms and we'll be latching onto that pretty soon I think!xxxx

  • Comment number 7.

    Hmm, nice. Soundtrack.
    Thanks for the insight

  • Comment number 8.

    BH music is so amazing - it wouldnt be a good show without it

  • Comment number 9.

    this shapes up to be a good week are we getting a new blog a day?

  • Comment number 10.

    weird thought about the experiments if put forward on George and Nina will they cause an opposite effect to that envisioned by CenSSA instead of making the wolf weaker it makes the wolf stronger?

  • Comment number 11.

    4 - yes I love that I think its a recurring theme isn't it but with slight alterations and that bit at the start of episode 5 was just lovely I actually had it as a text ringtone for a while lol

    also i got modded on the last page but dunno why no idea what i put there - oops!

  • Comment number 12.

    The music is such an integral part of this programme..... I can't wait.

  • Comment number 13.

    "Scream in horror", at what happens to one of our trio or to Lucy, Kemp etc. Ohhhh

  • Comment number 14.

    oh god - scream in horror :O ... oh dear

    and i agree the music is totally amazing :D

  • Comment number 15.

    I love all the background stuff we're given. I think it enhances the programme, I feel more connected to it somehow (I know, corny, but true). And the music is always great, appropriate, and important. What would Jaws have been without the Da Da, Da Da bit but Trevor having a hissy fit!

    Off to a v. important ice hockey match, so will catch up later.

  • Comment number 16.

    Oh wow... I abzolutely LOVE the music in series two, especially after the DVD fiasco with series one where it all changed (not that the new music wasn't good, just a bit of a surprise!) I'm glad you mentioned the George/Nina telephone scene because that's my favourite of all, it's been used a few times just at the perfect moments and just makes me want to grin and cry at the same time, it's beautiful!

    Also, I'm even more excited about episode eight now... I didn't think that was possible!

  • Comment number 17.

    not sure I really understand "acoustically real" but "heavily processed" ?? tho it makes an odd sort of sense!

    Cant we have a vid of him actually doing this?

    - the incidental music is so good and adds so much to the emotional impact and atmosphere. Hope Richard is now getting some sort of break til S3!

  • Comment number 18.

    So want a being human soundtrack!!!

  • Comment number 19.

    17 - i know - he has only had one day off since december 26th? oh my!! bless his lil cottons he must reali luv this show!

  • Comment number 20.

    A being human soundtrack would be brilliant

  • Comment number 21.

    I'm so glad to read this post. I've always stated that BH's soundtrack is one of my favourite ever. Richard did a great job, really. With much passion, and that's what makes every for of art superb.

    I love the way this original music interacts with the licensed song choices.

    BH Team you rock! ('n roll)

  • Comment number 22.

    Yeeeeaaaaahhh! I'd love a soundtrack! =D

  • Comment number 23.

    Yay, soundtrack! I'm definitely buying that :)

  • Comment number 24.

    I think it'd be great to work on the sound track, most of the emotion (and tears) comes from really well placed tracks. I think. :)

    O, hi every1, im new. :)

  • Comment number 25.

    Really interesting to read this from Richard and hope that Toby and all the directors have noted his pleas for greater amount of time to write his soundtracks.....the writing for series 3 appears to be going at a faster pace then even series 2 so don't know that Richard will get his hope!

    Speaking of musical things...only noticed when watching eps 7 again on the Iplayer that Mitchell has a squeeze-box in his room ( don't know corrcet name for it) in his room...would have been cool to have seen him playing it.

    Crikey..even more gory scenes in eps 8 by the sound of things! No idea who kills who but still fairly sure that Mitchell, George, Annie and Nina make it to Wales ..albeit with Annie changed in some way....maybe she develops her superpowers to such an extent that she transports all 4 of them at the same time!

    Don't think Kemp or Lucy survive...not sure about Daisy but can't see her making it to Wales somehow...

    ...and also fairly sure that Trevor has met his maker...sorry....

    There's also a cast member named on the eps list who hasn't appeared before...female...and wondering who she is..and what she does.

  • Comment number 26.

    there's a picture of George and Lucy outside the decompression chamber on the episode 8 page.

  • Comment number 27.

    Ooo, a BH soundtrack would be great! *grin*

    "I can't tell you what happens but it will make people scream in horror!" - Eep! That doesn't fill me with hope!

    (25) Dorina - No, they can't do that to Trevor! He needs to go and live with the trio [or four-some, if Nina comes too] in the new house! ;)

  • Comment number 28.

    Yep still in agreement with you Dorina about the three surviving, just wouldn't be the same with one of them dead, though not sure about Nina. I still think it will all centre round Annie.

  • Comment number 29.

    Being Human Production: Another very interesting blog post.

    Poor Richard doesn't get much time to write his music though does he? Yet he's still done a brilliant job! I hope he has a little more time for series 3, although that doesn't look likely!

    Ooooh, I'd really love it if there was a soundtrack released. I'd definitely buy it!

    I'm really looking forward to ep8, but at the same time I'm not, because it'll be the end of series 2.....and then what will I do!!!

  • Comment number 30.

    Sara Lloyd-Gregory has been in Torchwood, maybe a link with Wales?

  • Comment number 31.

    soundtrack would be great. did we ever get a soundtrack for season 1?

    has anyone read the BH books? wondering if 'Olive' might put in an appearence?

    Just realised that the guy blessing everyone on the gate of the facility is to ward off vamps! crikey that's thorough....

    how do i find the episode 8 cast list. god, do i even want to.... has ever a sunday been laced with so much dread and yet so much anticipation? think not

  • Comment number 32.

    Speaking of the episode 8 cast list, I am betting you-know-who will appear in a prequel. They'd be mad to give it away if it was more than that.

  • Comment number 33.

    31 -
    they could have given him a film camera to check against whats in front of him as it is he might when confronted by the vampires manage "in the nam urg..."

    at the top of this page the menu bar says episodes

  • Comment number 34.

    ( 31) I don't think that simply a blessing guy could stop the angry vampires blood- and revengethirsty! but that's just my opinion.

    I can't wait to see who these Amy and Daniel are (ok, Daniel must be the guy Lloyd called)

    and speaking of you-know-who.. (32)
    I really second DF on this one.. there is no other way for him to be back, and plus I love flashbacks.. maybe something with him and Kemp way back in the past.

  • Comment number 35.

    Evening my ansomes and prettys, youve given some good food for thought already thanks.

    34. indil agree that a blessing shouldnt stop and angry vamp (funny how it seemed to confuse george as a directions when he was driving in).

    10. ewan i hope you're right

    31. crow.. who the ']#= is olive?


    Anyone know... does tricky dicky the musicman put all the music together including songs from different bands etc (sussed georges transformation music - more on that l8er)

    TREVOR FOR EVER - but if he doesn't move to wales he can come a sort my greedy pirahnas out

  • Comment number 36.

    We've got a goldfish pond with lots of friends for Trevor if he needs a new home :-)

  • Comment number 37.

    If Trevor doesn't move to Wales he must move to Whales.

    O_O

    I know this is lame, kill me, but I could't help share it! XD

  • Comment number 38.

    Trevors my fishy now!!!!

  • Comment number 39.

    Didn't know there was a blog for this show until I check http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs just now. I like Being Human

  • Comment number 40.

    (37) aww, poor Trev, y must he move to whales? (lolz - slightly ;) )

  • Comment number 41.

    (40) XD because I can't resist play on words! XD it was just too strong.. or because he is moving to live among his brave and fierce sisters whales..

    Trevor, our hero, might have the shape and the body of a tiny goldfish, but his soul is brave and majestic like the big whales in the ocean!

    *epic dramatic music*

  • Comment number 42.

    Olive's this great vamp in the new BH books. In case anyone was worried that they might be a bit 2d in comparison to the ace tv show (like some tv show books have been let's be honest) they are really good. maybe even good enough to spin you out with a BH fix until season 3?

    glad we don't think belssing guy is a problem. what's he there for then? bit odd. but then censsa....bit odd!

  • Comment number 43.

    seriously for a min.

    please someone remind me why the move to wales?

    Why did Molly notice the full moon when George was starting to transform at the school?

    Sounds like more Gore next week,, "GORE...droolll", hope its inflicted on those of a scientific persuasion.

    Q. aren't the presence of vamps supposed to make it cold?

  • Comment number 44.

    still trying to think or something to match 186 for tonight and coming up with the nagging thought I might have left one of the arguments out. still with that one thought that keeps running through my head.

    the moment of terror is also bugging me I'm having giddy thoughts of members of CenSSA turning round without throats or bad thoughts of our heroes facing the same.

    Oh thought on the ending we're not going to see that adds to -10- CenSSA defeated but there's still half changed (Due to Lloyd mess up) George and Nina verses blood lust crazed vampires who have lost the plot Annie steps into the middle trying to stop this with a door opening behind her titles

    Oh 5 days to go and I think cracks are starting to show.

  • Comment number 45.

    43

    because they are leaving Bristol and funded by BBC Wales

    Because it was in the sky

    Of course there must be Blood

    in other worlds maybe not that of BH

  • Comment number 46.

    41. love the music

    42. Crow... thanks for the book recommendation Ill see if Annie can transport me one haha . Vamps do have cool names.. olive and Hetty I like.


    The blessing guy seem to a bad car par attendant - do they issue ticket and do clamping too?


  • Comment number 47.

    Ewan you're really in a bloody mood this evening! XD

  • Comment number 48.

    47 - It's the stress of waiting

  • Comment number 49.

    a soundtrack would be amazing!!

  • Comment number 50.

    42. lo ewy thought u were there.
    44. eh?..."something to match 186 for tonight" please explain?

    Calm down dear you'll blow an artery and attract the vamps (your welcome they,re freezing my place at the mo')

  • Comment number 51.

    50 last blog I wrote a argument for who will live who will die for all of our heroes

  • Comment number 52.

    The music definately adds something special to BH. I would welcome a soundtrack :o)

    35. lycan666, I suspect that ur greedy piranahas would sort Trevor out, rather that than the other way round, in a vampirish sort of way... :o( I thought Trevor was dead when I originally watch the ep lol. Just had another look, but he's was just sitting on the bottom of his bowl, isn't he. Probably mourning Mitchell, poor little soul!

    I think that LucyBF is obviously still hoping that Mitchell survived the explosion. I wonder if she will be more than just "vampire fodder" in the final ep... I think if anyone kills her it will be Daisy, rather than Mitchell, in revenge for Ivan.

  • Comment number 53.

    I was wondering if after all this mayehm Mitchell is ever going to wear colorfoul clothes again..

    I've been thinking about this in the last few weeks.. in series one he had ble and red and colorful shirts.. now he only dress in black and grey..

  • Comment number 54.

    there is one choice of score that we will all remember at the end of next weeks episode as has been stated one will die and the balance between just enough instrumental and too much is the truest test to be faced good luck on it.

  • Comment number 55.

    *gasp* 5 days to go? oh im so excited yet also filled with dread... whats going to happen.........

  • Comment number 56.

    in five days all questions will be answered and replaced by new ones where the arguments will surround death and the threat will be queried. and as 8 weeks ago we will know nothing.

  • Comment number 57.

    52. GR agree with u and lots of other soundtrack will be on my birthday pressy lsit 4sure

    U mentioning lucyBF make me wonder if we get Flashback from her to see
    zackly wot effect her accident had to make her go all religious etc. hmmmmm??
    Classic quote..
    Just watched the scene where kempy and nina try to convince george to join Censsa,the music when "bubbly-kemp" calls george an ~idiot adds to his ferocity but Georges response is "NAHHH! Sorry Still dont buy it" good doggy Georgy!!

    55. LO LURVE BH ows yer day flower?
    Im buzzin too, hope we all get what we want next sunday.



  • Comment number 58.

    All questions? Methinks there will be a few loose ends for series 3.

    Found Georges transformation music more l8er - shameless too distracting at the mo. cul

    let me know about the transformation music

    enjoy shameless :P

  • Comment number 68.

    Dorina - There's also a cast member named on the eps list who hasn't appeared before...female...and wondering who she is..and what she does.

    I noticed that and apparantly she's Welsh...I wonder...

    The music this season has been very very good. Cough soundtrack please.

    I'm thinking Daisy is going tell Nina about her shananigans with George ;)

  • Comment number 69.

    when you go to the episode page under 'next' it says 'you're at the last episode'- well rub it in why don't you!!

  • Comment number 70.

    i'm thinking the new female could be the link into the new series - her being welsh. also thinking that a lot of the curious cast listings will end up being red herrings and be in flashbacks! also think said flashbacks will explain something new that will help mitchell - or is that just wishful thinking!

  • Comment number 71.

    68 - i truly hope not... the whole daisy/nina thing i mean!! lol

  • Comment number 72.

    Ooh, next episode Amy McBride is played by Sara Lloyd-Gregory who was in an episode of Torchwood (giggle if you know which one it was).

    Odd that her character has been listed with both first name and surname, which seems odd. Most characters in BH are rarely refered to by more than one name (unlike a lot of shows where you always hear a character's full name, it even became a plot point with Lucy and Professor Jaggart). Anyway this is largely over analysis but I just thought it was odd. :S

  • Comment number 73.

    Oh and another thought from me, I wonder if next year's threat will be introduced as a sort of cliffhanger at the end of the series like Kemp was last year. Although if its "from within" it might be harder to illustrate than before.

  • Comment number 74.

    73 - now that u mention it... it is odd.... hmmm :S

  • Comment number 75.

    by the way... (anyone?!) am considering gettin the BH books... are they any good? worth buying??

  • Comment number 76.

    I'd say they are worth it, I've read 2 out of the 3 and I'm planning to get the third one. They capture the characters very well and the stories have a few twists to keep you interested.

    Good for a little bit more of Being Human action than you get on the telly:D

    I tend to get through them very quickly once I start which I suppose is a good sign.

  • Comment number 77.

    72 - giggle! i remember that episode. i miss torchwood. the last series was brilliant but really did end it with no real way back.

  • Comment number 78.

    Oh and another thing I like is that they follow on from eachother so you aren't starting again each time, characters are introduced who come back and some story threads continue form one book to another. It feels less like the stories come out of nowhere that way.

    It does mean there is a specific reading order than you ignore at your peril (mua ha ha)
    1. The Road
    2. Chasers
    3. Bad Blood

    Basically on the covers its Annie, George, then Mitchell (alphabetical order :D)

  • Comment number 79.

    76 - thats why i wanna buy them so i can still have a bit of BH after sunday :( so are they just about the characters and stuff? :D

  • Comment number 80.

    They are like episodes of the series just not on TV. Kind of.

    They are understandably less involved with the main arc of the series than the TV episodes so you don't have CenSSA show up or Daisy & Ivan, none of that is really moved on but they have their own sort of mini story arc (probably not the best person to say this because I still don't have the third book)

    I think they are supposed to be set some time during the early episodes of the series, after episode two and before episode four. I think if you are a fan of the show (as you are by your name :) ) You'll enjoy reading them.

  • Comment number 81.

    73 - the link to series 3 is higly probable.. they have to keep us longing for more.. (as if we didn't already!)

    and this Amy McBride could be the link, or the person from outside, who could be the link to Wales as well.. everything is getting intriguing. it always is btw.

    I was also hoping for some comeback from Tully, I watched that episode earlier today.. "they call me Tully" but we don't know much more about that!

    though I fear it's not gonna be a surprise Daniel, the actor's name is different!

  • Comment number 82.

    52. lycan666, yeah a flashback would be good. We seem to have had plently this series. It would be nice to understand where LBF is coming from. I still think she may want to help Mitchell tho. She was far too interested in wondering whether George had mentioned anything about him. Oh & I had the DVD series 1&2 on my birthday list last month. Unfortunately I've got a long wait, not out til April :( May have to try the books to get my BH fix in the meantime!

    68. Hmm, never thought of that, ref Daisy & Nina. That would be an interesting fight over a man (well ok, werewolf...) Daisy only needs some, er, shananigans with Annie & she's had the set lol. I'm guessing that would keep the fella's watching!

  • Comment number 83.

    67. L BH the Transmogrification music is ,.. link (if it works
    is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9lxmDewYoA

    I love! it cos its pretty Wacky and up beat, have a look and you'll see georges Transmogrification in a different light. let me know what u think or am a more warped than I know already.

    other bloggers welcome off course its Damn Good S*~t! (beware the moderator)


  • Comment number 84.

    80 - thats it im buying them!! thank you :) ooh im excited now!!

  • Comment number 85.

    I will have to get them through amazon sooner or later, I will definitely try to get the DVDs.

    now I'm going to bed, logging off, it's almost 1 am over here and toorrow is gonna be a long long day.

    Goodnight amazing BH bloggers!

  • Comment number 86.

    83 - oh wow.... thats definitely interestin.... hmmmm.....

  • Comment number 87.

    85 - night night :)

  • Comment number 88.

    81, indil yeah I like Tully, even if mitchel didn't, he was trying to help George, but what happened to him in series one. My brain cell wont stretch back so far.

    68. & 82. Daisy V Nina sound good. I'd support Nina but Daisy is
    a a dirty fighter we know.

    Have silver bullets ever been mentioned (I know they have in the Blog) they would seem sensible for Censsa to keep a few as I dont think Wolves are so bothered by Religious symbols as Vampires.

    91: extremely important ice hockey match, already have ticket for it. But I'll watch it when I get home, even if it's on iPlayer (not as good but still worth it). Miss it last week because TV remote was on the blink and couldn't change channels. BT vision recorded BAFTAs but not BH - spooky! - which is why I'm now recoring all episodes!
