Had fun writing a bunch of songs for this new IKEA commercial (Czech Rep, Hungary, Slovakia). A pleasure working with the folks at Film Service in Prague and of course with lead singer/shouter Janet Grogan!
"An Klondike" gets a limited cinema run this week in Galway (Eye Cinema). It's a feature length version of the tv series, great seeing/hearing it on the big screen!
Recently completed the score to a 4 part drama called "An Klondike" (TG4), which will sell internationally as "Dominion Creek". Deadly to work on this gold mining tale, the studio was full of banjos, singers, slide guitars and all manor of strange noises for 5 weeks. They cut a 90 minute feature version for festival screenings, delighted to say it'll be the closing film at this year's Galway Film Fleadh. Above is a section of cues from the series :)
Fun working on the opening sequence for the E3 Games conference with Echolab!

Let Us Prey is in cinemas across Ireland today, which is pretty great. To mark this I've made the opening theme a free download over on bandcamp.
Just completed the score for Dathaí Keane's epic gold mining drama series "Dominion Creek", or "An Klondike" as it'll be called on TG4. Looking forward to sharing some of the music from this, you can expect a lot of banjo...
Pretty pleased with this one - Andre Stringer's Director's Cut (with RESET Content) of a commercial for Qualcomm. Hat tip to Echolab's sound design work on it, really makes the whole thing pop!
"Alex Polizzi : Chefs on Trial" is a new 12 part series on BBC Two, the first episode airs on Monday @ 8pm. Music by me.
To celebrate the Irish premiere of "Let Us Prey" next week at the Jameson Dublin Film Festival, here's the song from the credits. As well as the original you can hear remixes by the awesome Nanu Nanu and the brilliant Colin J. Morris. Enjoy!
It'll be available on iTunes, Spotify & Amazon from monday the 23rd of March.

Delighted to say that Let Us Prey is finally getting an Irish screening. It's being shown in the Lighthouse Cinema on Friday the 27th of March as part of the Dublin International Film Festival. To coincide with this I'll be releasing a song from the film as a single. "Gather Up the Devils" will be available on iTunes with remixes from Colin J. Morris and Nanu Nanu.
I recently did the music for three global commercials for Game of War:Fire Age, here are the pieces!
Here are some of my favourite cues from 2014, a good year all round, and also my tenth year in business, hope you all have a happy new year :)
"A Parting Gift" airs this thursday on RTE1 (22.15). It's an interesting look at the process of body donation in Ireland, really worth a look if you've ever thought of leaving your body to science (as I have). Music by me, featuring some lovely flute playing by Vourneen Ryan.
"Let Us Prey" screened in Canada over the weekend at the Toronto After Dark Festival, here are a few reviews that came in -
"Meanwhile, composer Steve Lynch delivers a menacing electronic score that excels at creating atmosphere and elevating tension." - Cinematically Enigmatic
"Featuring a cool Carpenter-esque score and crisp cinematography, Brian O’Malley’s feature film debut is a violently thrilling romp." - Cinema Axis
"With a backdrop of a fantastic musical score (as promised) there are fights, shootings, beatings, murders and attempted murders as things at the station escalate quickly and deadly for all those involved." - Killer Reviews
A heavily John Carpenter-esque electronic score is something that has become very popular in recent years, and I have knocked other films for using it. LET US PREY uses this type of score very effectively, building tension slowly until the climax of the film. - Terror in Toronto
"Director Brian O'Malley is influenced by John Carpenter, as evidenced by the film’s excellent pulsating score." - Skon Movies
"The movie’s score is electronic and reminiscent of horror movies past. O’Malley, who has a love affair with electronica, describes it as “Carpenteresque”. It strikes the right mood and contributes to the tension. As the story escalates (and it does escalate!), so does the score. It keeps up with the action and scares beat for beat" - Geekpron
Just did a new sting/mnemonic for Electric Ireland, which begins airing today. It'll be used across all their commercials.
Enjoyed developing this over a few weeks with the guys in Cawley Nea, not always the easiest thing figuring out sonic branding, you need to find a tone and melody that will work across all existing and future ad types, hopefully we found it for Electric Ireland :)
