An experienced session cellist, Dury has appeared on BBC, ITV, Sky, and a number of TV and film soundtracks. Recent work includes a pre-recorded multi-tracked cello sountrack for a new production of 'Minotaur' at the Bristol Old Vic, recording cello tracks for Jess McAllister and performing a live session on BBC Radio, a session for Bristol-based 'The Cautioners', recording album strings and an IndiePop Festival performance with The HiLife companion, and a session of recordings for one of the UK's leading sound libraries.
Dury combines an eclectic taste in music with an
exceptional command of cello playing technique, meaning he can quickly create
exactly the sound needed for each recording. With years of experience composing
and arranging, he can also create and write string parts for recordings if
necessary - and if you need more string players for your recording or
performance, there is also The Ardeton Ensemble.
Whilst it is nearly always best to travel
to a professional studio where the other artists are present, if you are on a
very tight budget Dury can record string parts on his own studio set-up with
Aiff or Mp3 files created using professional microphones and ProTools.
