We asked Adam Sutherland of Adam Sutherland the following questions.
Tell us about yourself
Why are you involved in Scottish music?
I'm doing this until I have to get a real job.
Any particular career highlights?
Winning Composer of the Year in the 2017 Trad Music Awards.
What are your plans for the future?
I'm preparing the ground for a career composing authentic, modern-sounding Scottish music for film and television. Currently, I'm composing several new pieces designed to demonstrate the kind of scores that directors and producers could have as part of their production. Since the start of the pandemic, I've been composing extensively with Logic Pro X, using a combination of Spitfire Audio orchestral libraries, synthesisers, my own fiddle playing and other musicians to play my parts. I'm aiming for the biggest, most emotional music I can possibly conceive of, in order to help a director tell their story.
