    Award-winning composer David Arnold has been added to the line-up for the Music Show, which is RDS-bound on October 3 and 4.

    Arnold has scored five consecutive James Bond movies starting with 1999’s The World Is Not Enough; won a ‘Best Instrumental Composition Written For A Motion Picture’ Grammy for Independence Day; collaborated with the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Massive Attack, Chris Cornell, Shirley Manson, Pulp and Bjork; and is currently working on 2010’s The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader.

    He also happens to be Damien Rice’s second cousin, giving Damo copious amounts of equipment and advice whilst he was assembling his O album.

    Add in his involvement with Little Britain and ambassadorial role for the CARE International aid agency, and there’ll be plenty to talk to David about!
