The Croydon composer who's worked on Goldeneye, Midsomer Murders and a Kyle Minogue documentary

AMAZONIAN tribal chanting, Midsomer Murders, the DVLA and James Bond – spot the odd one out.

All have commissioned music by Cameron McBride except the South American rainforest – but the composer and producer hopes to head out there soon.

"I absolutely love my job," said Cameron, who has worked his way up in the music industry after starting as a runner for Snake Ranch Studios in London when he was 18.

"I like technology and I loved music so I did a sound engineering course."

Cameron has worked with big names including Elvis Costello and Van Morrison, but more recently worked on a fly-on-the-wall documentary following Kylie Minogue's Aphrodite World Tour.

The composer does most of his writing in his Croydon home but often works at the Sphere studio in Battersea where Adele, Will.I.Am, Take That and the X Factor are regular clients.

And while a lot of his work is for TV, his movie credits include the 007 film Goldeneye. Since the ITV drama series Midsomer Murders began 1997, Cameron has been producing the sound and music.

He got the job on Kylie's documentary through his work at Blink TV, where a friend recommended him.

The producer's company, Brilliant Music Ltd, specialises in high-quality production music for film and TV where credits include commercials for Adidas, DVLA, Holden, Nintendo and Subaru.

In the past he has travelled to Cuba to write traditional-sounding Cuban music used on EastEnders and Coronation Street.

"Someone on Coronation Street was learning to dance and they needed some Latin music so they used mine," he said.

He has just returned from China, where he wrote music for the festival A La Carte dedicated to mime and puppetry in Shanghai. Working with a Peruvian-British artist and puppeteer Jose Navarro, he was the sound producer and composer.

In Cameron's next project he intends to travel to the Amazon in January, to get some tribal vocal recordings for his music library.
