Composer who’s arrived


MOSCOW-BORN ROS Gilman, who had to switch to composing after an injury forced him to give up his career as a violinist, has been gaining increasing recognitio­n for his work. The Finchleyba­sed musician has just won an independen­t Aphrodite Film Award from New York for his soundtrack to the short film, The Arrival, about a young Jamaican woman who comes to the UK.

“The film is centred around secrets,” he said, “and one of the challenges I faced when writing the music was to keep the suspense going, without tipping over too much into the genre of a thriller.”
