I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Matt Riley (Cancel the Astronauts) on his solo album.

Matt wanted some strings in some of his songs and I was very happy to work with him and the fabulous Forth Quartet on recording some great arrangements.

Luci Holland Headshot


Luci Holland is a composer and musician who studied under Prof. Nigel Osborne and Prof. Peter Nelson at the University of Edinburgh. From a young age Luci has been fascinated with composition, the orchestra, and scoring to screen. 

Her versatility displays itself in her enjoyment in composing for a wide variety of projects, including her assisting operatic composer Julian Wagstaff on his work in 2007, writing and arranging music for several songwriters, and composing orchestral music by invitation for The Edinburgh University Sinfonietta 2010 spring concert. She is especially interested in film and games scores. She has worked as composer and music advisor for games software company Musemantik, and composer for several short films. In 2011 she was accepted into the Edinburgh International Film Festival Composers' Minilab, a short course designed for composers who are interested in film to practise scoring for screen and discuss the industry with leading professionals. She was also selected as part of 10 composers through a competitive process to participate in the 2013 Composition Marathon with the Scottish Music Centre.

Recently Luci composed the music for a short film entitled Weapons, performed by the Red Note Ensemble at their Noisy Night with Film in December 2012. She also wrote the score for Jack the Monster, a short stop motion animation film. She regularly works as an arranger and copyist with composer Nigel Osborne, composer/songwriter Julian Wagstaff and songwriter/performer Matt Riley, and was the Musical Director for the Edinburgh University Savoy Opera Group's 50th anniversary Edinburgh Fringe performance. The group ran a 13 day production of Sater and Sheik's rock musical Spring Awakening in the 2011 Fringe, which saw a near complete sell-out run, five star reviews, and high praise.

She co-founded the Edinburgh Film Music Orchestra with composer Yati Durant in 2010, and works as their Orchestra Manager and Compositional Assistant. They recently put together the Edinburgh Game Symposium and Concert with games composer Jacob Pernell, an event which was held with the Edinburgh International Film Festival in 2013.

A keen oboist, Luci has enjoyed performing with a wide range of professional musicians and ensembles, such as Baroque ensemble Sospiro, the Edinburgh New Orchestra, Making Music Scotland, the Rose Street Ensemble, the Edinburgh Contemporary Music Ensemble, and the Edinburgh Composers' Orchestra. She has also played as 'guest hautbois' for string-based rock band Lipsync for a Lullaby and session oboist for Bwani Junction, and keys player for ska/rock band Rigor Mortis and the (Kansas) City Coffin Dodgers.

Currently Luci is writing two pieces, one for the Edinburgh Charity Orchestra (to be performed in October 2013), and the other for the multi-instrumental group Ecouter Listen for their 2014/2015 tour. She is also working with an independent animator on a short film based on the Celtic Beltane mythology, entitled The Festival of Light.
