Marcel also writes and performs with his band, Bassistry, and composes for libraries. His first encounter with library music came when he was approached about adapting material from Bassistry’s second album, In Time. Since then, he’s been commissioned to compose music for children’s television series for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, as well as multimedia and video games. He works closely with a group of musicians in his network, including Ivor Novella winner Cassell the Beatmaker (drummer of The Streets) and Eric Appapoulay (guitarist with Cat Stevens)
Marcel loves the varied nature of his career, and enjoys working with a small network of gifted artists. He is keen to nurture new talent and is part of Cassell’s ITM creative team, working in partnership with the Ivor Academy and PPL to mentor and produce music for young and gifted songwriters. As well as composing new music for MediaTracks, Marcel will also be the curator of the new MediaTracks World label, and we’re very excited to see how it develops.
