Profile image for Don McGlashan

Don McGlashan

Composer

Don McGlashan showed his screen talents early, as one half of offbeat multimedia group The Front Lawn. Since then he has composed for film and television, alongside his own music. His score for Jane Campion's An Angel at My Table won acclaim; his screen awards include film No. 2 — which spawned number two hit 'Bathe in the River' — Katherine Mansfield tale Bliss, and TV series Street Legal.

It was very satisfying ... Someone was saying to me the other night, “Wouldn’t it be cool to do a big score somewhere else, like LA.” I might be naive but, honestly, I could say “No, it was more fun doing it here.” Don McGlashan, on composing the score for movie No. 2, in Onfilm magazine, May 2006, page 24
