Back in 2015 composer Alexandra Harwood asked Skim to design a simple portfolio website to showcase her music, we willing obliged. What I found intriguing was that fact that she promoted herself as Alex Harwood.. Basically there were (and probably still) are many more male music composers getting the big slices of the cake; Films, TV, Ads & Games are dominated by the boys. Be great if the balance shifted, but that’s up to all involved parties. Ladies be bold and have courage in your convictions, industry support and promote and champion great female composers (well done Scala Radio) & researchers need to stop being so lazy when looking for composers for TV shows and Films/Games – there thousands of talented composers in the world, try to stop using the same few.

OK latest rant over – check out Alexandra Harwood’s new website and enjoy her latest portfolio of work or have listen.
