I operate, out of my small, but well equipped home studio at Gamlehuset Studio in the Norwegian countryside, which I used to record and produce local acts as well as my own music for film, TV advertising, video games and band projects.

I am a qualified ProTools and Logic Pro operator, and MIDI programmer and arranger. Through years of experience, I have gained the compositional and production skills needed to take a basic song (chords, melody and lyrics) and flesh it out into a full arrangement in any number of genres (the key ones being rock, acoustic, indie and some pop).

My last big composition project was my first film score, for “All The Ordinary Angels”, based on the award winning Nick Leather play of the same name, and I am itching to use this experience reach out into more film, TV and video games, something I can offer for very attractive rates. Contact me below.

All The Ordinary Angels (Original Score)

  • COMPOSER: DANIEL DRUMM
  • DIRECTOR: SIMON LOVELL
  • YEAR: 2015

My main project of 2014/15 was my first feature length score – or score of any kind for that matter! – for the film All The Ordinary Angles, produced by the Co-Op funded British Youth Film Academy.

“All The Ordinary Angels” centres around an Italian descended family in industrial Manchester, and their ice cream factory. The once great, now floundering “Raffa’s”, is being passed on to the next generation by owner and family patriarch Giuseppe Raffa as he soon retires.

He pits his sons – the hot-headed Rocco and the meek Lino – against one another in an ice-cream sell-off to determine who will take over the business.

What start’s as brotherly competition, quickly descends into insanity when the ruthless Rocco, less-than-willing factory worker Lulu, and her drug dealer older brother Joe, conspire to make their ice cream…very moreish…a scheme which crosses many lines and soon tears the family apart.

My aim was to make fairly simple musical ideas, dressed up with a big orchestral/electronic arrangements and production, on a budget. The experience was a crash course in so many things: orchestral composition and arranging, realistic programming for orchestras, syncing video to picture in emotionally effective ways, working with directors and the revision process, the film making process in general…it was back to school. I’d like to think the music is at least a 2:1…

I’d like to thank BYFA for taking a chance on someone untested, Simon Lovell the director for running himself ragged in the name of the every aspect of the film, and Dominik Schirmer for crash-coursing me in the broad strokes of composing to picture without which I’d have been pretty lost. Oh! And every film I’ve ever watched; it was all preparation!

Nina G – Gimmie Some

  • ARTIST: NINA G
  • Written By: NINA GRØDAHL & DANIEL DRUMM
  • YEAR: 2015

Its a great thing when you go outside of your comfort zone and the payoff is this big. I’ve recently been dipping my toe into genres I’d have never expected make music in, and finding the whole new set of materials and conventions I get to work with exciting, invigorating and also pretty overwhelming. Good thing Nina G is brimming with focus and vision for her music, qualities that helped wrangle all my fresh, sketchy knowledge into some music we’re both really proud of. Shout outs to Tony Draper for the mix, Mike Cave for the master, along with the legends behind the video for shooting and dancing in the freezing fog until they couldn’t feel their leg-ends!
