David Julyan began writing music for short films whilst studying at University College London. It was here that David first collaborated with director Christopher Nolan and in 1998 scored Nolan's first feature Following. Shot with little money on weekends over a six month period, Following went on to become an unexpected Indie hit.
His work is best know through their later collaborations Memento, Insomnia and The Prestige. The latter two helping to cement David's style for seamlessly blending orchestra with atmospheric electronics, to produce subtle and brooding scores. Subtlety was put aside for the score to Neil Marshall's horror film The Descent giving David the opportunity to create one of his biggest works to date, with its dramatic use of orchestra and choir.
Although best known for his dark and atmospheric scores, David has also scored films like the heart-warming Irish drama Inside I'm Dancing. His most recent work released in April 2012 is The Cabin In The Woods a clever twist on the traditional horror format from Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon.
