‘A hauntingly beautiful soundtrack that tied in perfectly with the mood of the programme’

Televisual Magazine

‘the music effectively became another character in the show with a sense of quirkiness and drama – which is hard to pull off, but done so with aplomb in this winning entry’

RTS Awards Jury

‘a bittersweet, poignant score that is equal parts traditional and unconventional. The ideal companion piece to this touching idiosyncratic story.’

Hasitha Fernando, Flickering Myth

‘beautifully discordant music’

Peg Aloi, The Arts Fuse

‘The soundtrack is perfect’

Jeanine T. Abraham, Black Girl Nerds

‘the melancholic yet almost alien-like score from Arthur Sharpe’

Lewis Knight, The Mirror

‘a score to lift your spirits and make you forget about life’s great negativity… The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, alongside shows Flowers and Landscapers, seems certain to propel Sharpe’s career.’

The Film Scorer

‘credit must also go to Arthur Sharpe’s terrific score’

Patrick Cremona, Radio Times

‘Sharpe’s beautiful soundtrack also adds to this sense of otherworldliness… [it] perfectly captures the mood, a little strange, whimsical and full of pathos.’

Sheena Scott, Forbes

‘Sharpe’s theremin-heavy score is especially delightful’

Amon Warmann, Empire

‘soaring like some otherworldly violin’

Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal

‘Electricity… such a beautiful piece of music’

Edith Bowman, Soundtracking

‘Arthur’s wide-ranging, complex score elevates the limited series… [his] music has brought dimension and humanity to what is so often dismissed as odd’

Charles Steinberg, Composer Magazine

‘… mysterious, atmospheric writing. The tone shifts between Gothic and romantic, with outward-reaching thematic gestures bathed in rich harmonies.’

Steven A. Kennedy, Film Score Monthly

‘All trades contribute to the enlightening uncertainty in this production, but above all the chameleon-like soundtrack by Arthur Sharpe’ (translation from German)
