About
The TV drama is imagined; the work and the guests are real.

In mid-2019 composers Dan Watts and Gareth Davies met for lunch to discuss a collaboration idea. What if they could make a TV drama soundtrack without actually being commissioned? What if that collaboration could be journaled in some way to attract producers and influencers? What if it their experiences could help and inform other people?

The Making A Soundtrack podcast was born.

Join Dan and Gareth as they find out what it takes to create a TV drama soundtrack.
