London-born film score composer and classical music arranger, David C. Hëwitt began on the piano at six and later studied in London and America, earning a BA (Hons) in music and theology. He is now scoring Beheading Buddha, a film featuring Brian Blessed (Star Wars, Family Guy) and Jenny Agutter (An American Werewolf in London, Child's Play 2). He recently finished scoring a modern version of Shakespeare's Macbeth, starring Anthony Head (Buffy, Little Britain).

The 70s were a seminal time for horror movie scores with Mike Oldfield and John Carpenter setting the precedent for this particular style. This piece fits that idiom perfectly & uses instruments that were available back then, albeit with a slightly more modern feel. Scary, tense, anticipatory.
