A small boy is trapped, alone, hiding in a collapsing office building. He must escape by any means, but must not go to ground...

The directors of this beautiful stop motion short film, John Eyre and Robin Heap, spent years building the world and main character of The Palace, and I tried to pay the same attention to detail with the score. I was lucky enough to work with guitarist Amanda Cook and viola player Martin Wray, and have since made an expanded live version (see footage of rehearsals below).
