About me
Although from the classical tradition, I've embraced many genres including rock, jazz, pop and theatre. However, in 2013 I decided to concentrate on playing my own work alongside silent films both old and new. My acclaimed score for Fritz Lang’s Metropolis toured extensively. Working with a visual medium allows me to bring new audiences to both music and film. Recently I have been doing Livestream concerts and am considering doing film/concerts via livestream also.

  • The Man with the Child in His Eyes (a rhapsody)
    The Man with the Child in His Eyes (a rhapsody)I am due to give an interview with Retropopic Radio to discuss the first two iconic albums of Kate Bush and in preparation for that, I have recorded this cover.

  • Christmas Single - Release Date 9th December
    Christmas Single - Release Date 9th DecemberIn the very early 80s my band, Suppose I Laugh, played The Pindar of Wakefield (now the Water Rats) a music venue in King's Cross area of London. We shared the billing that night with The Pogues. (I have a few tales to tell but not in public spaces). It wasn't long after they released the single, Fairytale of New York. For the last few years I've thought about releasing a Christmas single but wasn't sure which piece to record, then with all the hullabaloo around the words in Fairytale of New Yo
  • Interview with Retropopic Radio, Sydney.
    Interview with Retropopic Radio, Sydney.An interview which takes quite a journey through my musical career and covers many personal moments. The Saint managed to uncover my family history, travels to Poland during the Cold War, my love of Kate Bush and Nancy Sinatra and how I ended up re-imagining the scores for Metropolis and Nosferatu. It even covers the rarely discussed Holodomor and my artistic response to it.

  • Hebridean Suite
    Hebridean SuiteThis album came about after a visit to the Outer Hebrides and is a response to the pain of loss. Dmytro was at the time thinking about Malcolm Arnold in his centenary year (he met him several times both in and out of hospital) and when hearing about the struggles of those on the islands, he thought of the dispossessed and the resonance with his own ancestral past. Is fulfilment built out of the lasting legacy of loss? Each piece is dedicated to various individuals including, Malcolm, a friend a
