David Sims  🎶 music music music 🎶 ⚽ Southampton FC ⚽ 26, Dorset, England MD for Explosive Productions Ltd

Today I start working on the first of TEN new shows to be performed in the Playhouse Theatre, on board the brand new @sagauk ship Spirit of Discovery. Once I've written the music it'll be sent over to the amazing vocal coaches, choreographers, tech team and costumiers of @explosive_productions_ltd to create a series of amazing shows. It's a real honour to be involved- it's going to be a busy year!

50 not out! Yesterday I finished recording my 50th show for @explosive_productions_ltd. All I wanted to do when growing up was write and perform music and the buzz seeing a new show performed is the same now as it was when I started 4 years ago! I've been lucky to work with some incredible singers, dancers and musicians. Here's a few photos of some great times and great people, plus one of the home studio! On to show 51... #explosiveproductions #music #arranging #piano #guitar #bass #homestudio #showtime #itsnotworkifyouloveit #saga #fredolsen #centreparcs #britanniahotel #doncasterraces #yesthatisaflugelhornwithalightinit

Moonlight Shadow guitar solo. Long time since I've done one of these vids but always loved this song and one of my favourites to play!

Next week my orchestral commission 'Sounds of Suffolk' receives its premiere by the BFO, in concert at the Apex, Bury St. Edmunds. It's been a long time since I composed something so can't wait to hear it! Here's a short demo with film used with permission from English Heritage.

Last few tickets are on sale at www.theapex.co.uk

I've been working on this re-orchestration of Bowie's amazing 'Life on Mars' for a contemporary dance performance in L.A. this spring. One of my favourite artists and an honour to pay tribute to the great man. Here's some of the track, can't wait to see the choreography!

I can't quite believe it, but this evening a couple of my recent arrangements receive their first airing by multi-million selling violin legend Vanessa Mae and her band in concert at the Acropolis, Athens. Wish I was there to hear it! #followyourdreams #music #musicarranger #livemusic #vanessamae #violin #classical #athens #greece #lifegoals #concert

I was asked the other day to explain the unique 'Wall of Sound' arrangement technique from so many classic 60s songs. Here I've replicated Phil Spector's layering approach exactly, to show how it was done. Proof that arrangement and orchestration is vital to making a song great!
