Under the proverbial baton of Jim Copperthwaite, Adapted Silence is a fellowship of unusually well developed ears.  With enough experience across the music business for a decent best-seller we have developed extensive credits in music for tv, film, galleries and vinyl long-player.  We are based in a secret countryside location near Bath, England, where we engage in a variety of edifying rural behaviours largely for the benefit of our healthy appetites.  We seek projects that require music and sound to embellish narratives, emphasise imagery and explore emotions. We love the unexpected, the strange, the simple and the ingenious. We understand briefs. We understand collaboration. We understand that one man's celestial chorus is another's riotous cacophony.  If we can record the bowed resonance of a submerged tank we will, but we're aware that in a very small number of cases this isn't necessary, appropriate, or fiscally responsible.  Generally speaking we prefer not to write sizzling brass themes for light entertainment - unless it's Friday, in which case we'll also consider jingles, elevator music, pop pastiches and fine wine.


We can also butcher a pig, provide a range of handmade charcuterie, recommend a number of excellent Yurt stays and supply dangerously good handcrafted ales.
