Original score, songs, sound design and soundtrack production by me.
“There is a cracking sound score by Dave Price which ranges from ska to electronica and often has a touch of Chris Isaak and the Twin Peaks music about it.”
Charles Spencer – The Telegraph
“Around this strange, dystopian world a mysterious DJ spins records “from out of the guts of angels”. We follow all this on headphones, each of us plugged into our own soundtrack. This is an inspired touch – Dave Price’s sound design plays ingenious sonic tricks, and the folky songs are excellent.”
Laura Barnett – The Observer
“…the score and music are particularly effective – So good is Dave Price’s soundtrack that I’m still humming along a week later.”

“There are moments of eerie delight when the actors start to tap softly on their planks and a flutter of sounds at different pitches gradually assembles into a syncopatedly seductive lullaby.”
Paul Taylor – The Independent
“The strangeness is heightened by the Dave Price score of drips, scratchings and mystic rustlings.”
Lyn Gardner – The Guardian

Written for Noszferatu and using recorded interviews with my friend the Korean composer Lee Chong Man, whose voice is heard throughout as a narrator and vocalist. The music is entirely derived from the melodic and rhythmic patterns of his voice. Lee’s Game is a story about language, an exploration of communication and identity, and an affectionate portrait of a friend.
The piece is featured on Noszferatu’s CD Drempel (NMC) and was nominated for a BASCA Composer’s Award 2008 in the Chamber Music Category.
