Biography

Born in Nottingham in 1972, Bekki performed her first solo concert at the tender age of 8. She won a scholarship to a national music school at the age of 11, and has played in several regional orchestras. She has composed music for radio, films and video games, and has worked as a session musician (synthesisers, piano, flute, sax and backing vocals) in several recording studios as well as running a studio of her own.

As far as inspiration goes, Bekki admires in particular the compositional skills of several film and game soundtrack composers, such as Danny Elfman, Graham Revelle, Brad Fiedel, Jerry Goldsmith, Randy Edelman, and Jeremy Soule. Her favourite composer of all time though is Nathan McCree, the musical genius behind many of the ‘Tomb Raider’ games.

Classically trained for many years on the flute from the age of 10, and eventually studying the saxophone and piano, Bekki is now better known for her warm, emotive, symphonic synthesiser arrangements and trademark melodies. This follows her signing to the AD Music label in 1995, and the release of her debut album Elysian Fields in 1996.

Bekki’s one burning ambition is to compose full-time for film and television. This is something that she has longed to do since being commissioned by BBC Radio Derby’s Ashley Franklin to compose the score for the Valentino silent classic The Son of the Sheikh in 1997. This score was intended to be played live at an exclusive screening of the movie and the deadline was tight - Bekki had only 6 weeks in which to compose the entire soundtrack.

    Thanks, I managed to get Shadow of the Wind on Ebay. I don't think the Tears of the Dragon score was ever released on CD mate. :(

    You could try Amazon for a used copy or there might be one on eBay? I'm after the Tears of the Dragon Tomb Raider soundtrack myself so if anyone knows where I can buy the CD I'd be grateful. Thx in advance.

    Amber Dawn (Twilight Mix) is my favourite. Does anyone know where I can get Shadow of the Wind from? Apparently it's only available as a digital download now? I'd like the actual CD.
