The Stranger in Our Bed (Ian Arber)

Original score from the 2022 thriller feature film directed by Giles Alderson, starring Samantha Bond, Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Andi Osho, produced by Buffalo Dragon and released by Showtime (USA) and Signature (UK).

THE STORY: A happily married woman leaves her husband for a lover who mysteriously disappears.

THE SCORE: The score for The Stranger in Our Bed has haunting melodic themes, performed by a traditional string ensemble, in combination with modern analogue synths and mysterious piano motifs to create the film’s enigmatic world. While the score begins with a melodic, romantic but mysterious tone, it progressively evolves to pulsating horror tones, and subsequently grows into a more traditional hybrid instrumentation to fully convey the sense of mystery which climaxes in the second half of the film.” Ian Arber

THE COMPOSER: Ian Arber is an emerging talent in the film music world. With a growing portfolio of work across a variety of genres, in 2016, he scored two feature documentaries about Olympic legends Usain Bolt (I Am Bolt), and Sir Mo Farah (Mo Farah: No Easy Mile). His documentary scores are characterized by strong musical contributions from musicians, such as hip-hop legend Nas appearing in the opening titles to I Am Bolt and the involvement of co-composer Blur drummer Dave Rowntree on Mo Farah: No Easy Mile. Other recent works in Arber’s filmography include assisting Joe Kraemer on the blockbuster Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation as well providing music for the BBC2 period comedy Quacks. His music for the biographical drama My Name is Lenny has been released by MovieScore Media.
