BAFTA Award-winning composer Jessica Curry has signed a publishing agreement with Faber Music.

The composer, who’s also co-founder of renowned games company The Chinese Room, is best-known for her choral music and ground breaking scores to videogames Dear Esther and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture.

She loves writing for unusual spaces, and her work has been performed in diverse venues such as The Old Vic Tunnels, Sydney Opera House, Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Wellcome Trust, MOMI New York, The Royal Opera House and Durham Cathedral.

Curry’s music receives extensive airplay on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM, where she is also a presenter, hosting the High Score show about video game music. It’s the most listened-to show on the station’s catch-up service and has helped boost listenership among under 35s by 30 percent, according to recent RAJAR figures.

In March 2016 Jessica was awarded a place on British Council’s Film, Archive and Music Lab Week (FAMLAB), in conjunction with PRS Foundation, HOME and BFI, the British Council.

This autumn, a new game, So Let Us Melt, launches, featuring Curry’s original choral soundtrack in performance by London Voices.
