ABOUT NOVASOUND

Novasound is the writing and production partnership of Audrey Tait and Lauren Gilmour.

Since scoring our first short film in 2016 – ‘TAM’ (Greenlight Creative, BBC One, IndieFest
Film Award, EIFF, FrightFest) – we have produced soundtracks for a number of theatre
productions in Scotland. Our most notable achievements include ‘Rapunzel’ (National
Theatre of Scotland), ‘This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing’ (Stellar
Quines & Imaginate Festival), ‘Closed Doors’ (Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Summerhall Lab
recipient, HMUK Fusion Fund), ‘The Tin Soldier’ and ‘Miranda and Caliban: The Making
Of A Monster’ (Birds Of Paradise Theatre Company), ’Shame’ (Tidy Carnage, Edinburgh
Festival Fringe, Scottish Arts Club Award).

Between us, we have 2x BA(Hons) Commercial Music Degrees, MSc Sound Design and
Audiovisual Practice, an Audio Engineering Society’s HeForShe Bursary, 2x features in the
Scottish Album of the Year Shortlist and Longlist and our work as producers has attained
commercial radio play on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio 3, BBC Rapal
and Amazing Radio. We both have significant performing experience playing at an array
of festivals (Celtic Connections, T in the Park, Wickerman, TRNSMT, Belladrum,
Indiefjord, Transmusicales) and venues (The Royal Albert Hall, SECC, Webster Hall,
Cavern Club, o2 ABC, o2 Academy, King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut). We have been involved in
songwriting workshops and masterclasses with youth groups, Universities and prisons in
Scotland as well as teaching and mentoring young people through programmes such as
Music Plus, University of the West of Scotland, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and UK
Theatre School.

As well as our own writing space, Novasound has been established as a commercial recording studio and mastering suite since 2017. Our mission is to create music of an exceptional standard, continue honing our craft as producers and meet the demands of any project we collaborate on.

As a production team, we’re confident we can bring your vision to life!
