Our latest guest on Soundtracking is a rare thing in this business: a female composer.
Huzzah!

Amelia Warner is relatively new to the game, but is definitely making waves, having provided the scores for Mary Shelley and the brilliant BBC short, Leading Lady Parts.
Her latest offering is Wild Mountain Thyme. Written and directed by John Patrick Shanley, Wild Mountain Thyme is a comedic family drama set in Ireland starring Amelia's husband Jamie Dornan, Emily Blunt and Mad Men's Jon Hamm.
Her score beautifully combines sweeping orchestration and traditional Irish music tropes, and you'll hear plenty of it throughout the course of the interview.
