Sound of success (PAU September 2006)

In today’s programme we look at a success story. Mary Stone interviews Ian Briton, a composer and musician living in Barcelona whose career took off when the famous theatre company, the Fura delsBaus, began using his music. Ian Briton is an example of how a talented foreigner can come to this city, struggle for however long it takes, and then succeed and become famous. A former Londoner ofScottish descent, Briton’s music has honoured royal performances, massive outdoor concerts, innu-merable smaller concerts and theatrical events. He is also an award-winning composer of film soundtracks.
