David Long

Composer

Former Mutton Birds guitarist David Long has composed music for television, a wide range of documentaries, and dramatic features (Two Little Boys, Russian Snark). After co-writing the score for 1993 feature Absent Without Leave, he went solo to compose for Home Movie and a trio of ensemble TV dramas, in the process winning screen awards for both Insiders Guides. He is also an award-winning music producer (Fur Patrol).

For me colour and texture are really important, like a tone, your guitar tone. It's not just the note that you play, it's the sound of it. David Long
