Composer/arranger/conductor Ben Foster from Formby with Paul at the recording session for his new song Hope For The Future
While Insider has been frantically Christmas shopping, Formby-born composer and conductor Ben Foster has been busy with more enviable lofty challenges ... like working on Paul’s new single, and on the Dr Who Christmas special for instance.
The ex-Formby High lad, now living in London, was invited by Macca to arrange and conduct Hope for the Future, the song he wrote and recorded for Activision’s massively successful video game Destiny.
He is releasing four remixes of the track and, thanks to the wonders of technology, appears in the 28th-century game universe as a hologram—serenading various Guardians via projection from a Ghost AI assistant.
The project was the latest entry in a packed diary for Ben, who just days earlier conducted his 10th Doctor Who Christmas Special – due for screening on BBC1 on Christmas Day – with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
He has also been working on a joint TV job with his brother Nick which promises to attract plenty of attention in the new year.The pair have been brought in to compose music for a TV revival of the Gerry Anderson animation Thunderbirds.
