ARTIST OF THE WEEK
Darryl John Hannan
A rising talent in the film music industry, Darryl John Hannan has scored a number of features and short films in a variety of genres, all with breathtakingly original music. The bittersweet romantic drama 'Kept Boy' boasts the composer's ability to portray subtextual emotion; the agile score of "And In A Moment" displays his versatility; the tribal sound of 'The Messenger' showcase his eagerness to experiment; and the visceral 'The Black Shuck' are all examples of the composer's ability to tap into the subconscious. Darryl's work has been widely heard on the Global festival scene, most notably the Cannes Film Festival in 2019.
A graduate of the University of Hertfordshire with 1st Class Honours, his musical roots are grounded in progressive rock music and he began writing music in bands from an early age.
In addition to Film and TV, Darryl has written music for several commercials for clients such as Chef Online, the University of East Anglia and the exam board, OCR. He has also worked closely with Pixelform Studios and That's Bellion Film Production.
