Plan 9 compose NZ music for film and tv and more

© 2017  Plan 9

Plan 9 have three times won Best Film Score at the NZ Film Awards for Predicament, Saving Grace and Jack Brown Genius and been finalists 4 times. They were finalists for the 2015 APRA Screen Composing Award. They compose New Zealand music for film and tv, radio, installations and museum experiences, theatre and dance.

 

They wrote the song Misty Mountains with David Long which was sung by Richard Armitage and the dwarves for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This theme was used by Howard Shore as part of the score and then by Neil Finn as the basis of the closing credits song The Song Of The Lonely Mountain.

Late in 2018 Plan 9 created the original score for Peter Jackson's documentary They Shall Not Grow Old. They are working on a soundtrack using binaural recording for an immersive theatre experience. Plus a short film Topping Out for Kerry Fox and something a little bit Hobbitty with David Long for Hobbiton in Matamata.

 

In 2014 they were commissioned to create new themes for Radio NZ's flagship current affairs shows Morning Report and Checkpoint. And the morning one is still playing!
