Profile image for Stephen McCurdy

Stephen McCurdy

Composer

Composer Stephen McCurdy's screen music has crossed the gamut — from jazz, chamber pieces, rock, and pop, to the faux Peggy Lee song which opened each episode of 80s soap Gloss. McCurdy won NZ Film Awards for his scores to Came a Hot Friday and The End of the Golden Weather

I think the tendency for New Zealand screen music is to be quite sparse ... and that's a good thing. Part of my job is knowing exactly when to sit on my hands. Stephen McCurdy
