James Bond Composer David Arnold Says Music Industry on ‘Precipice’

David Arnold, who composed the music for Casino Royale and Independence Day, said the industry was “on a precipice”.

“If there’s no way of having a communal experience of live music I think that’s going to be a disaster,” said Arnold.

The government said it had invested £1.57bn in a grant scheme for music venues and organizations.

In the article “James Bond Composer David Arnold Says Music Industry on ‘Precipice’” from BBC News, Nic Rigby discusses the impact of live concert cancellations on musician’s earnings.

“Arnold, who co-wrote the music for BBC drama Sherlock and was musical director for the 2012 Olympics, added: “I think we are on a bit of a precipice. It’s almost impossible as a musician to make money. Some will, but an awful lot won’t”.”

As we begin to reopen our world, we can support musicians by purchasing their music online and sharing their work with our own audiences.
