“Yasmine’s beautiful compositions lift documentaries to another level.” David Preston, Producer, Editor BBC Africa Eye ‘Faith Under Fire’
I compose for Documentaries, TV, Corporate Films, Short Films, Production Music and Games, with a special interest in Middle Eastern Music and Balkan Music.
My bespoke music projects often require me to help tell poignant stories, for example BBC Africa Eye’s Faith Under Fire, directed by Chris Alcock, Forged, directed by Lauren Anders Brown, and Taarof, directed by Alannah Olivia. I composed a song called ‘Change Will Change Her Life’ sung by members of the CK Gospel Choir, which featured on a short film shown at the United Nations World Food Programme conference. My music is often recorded by well-established musicians, including Tim Garside, Sass Hoory, Darius Thompson and Klezmer band She-Koyokh. As a vocalist, I performed English versions of sea shanties as a session singer for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
My music has been featured in a number of documentaries, including Panorama’s On the NHS Frontline (BBC1), Art of Persia (BBC4), When Bridges Collapse: The Genoa Disaster (BBC2), and China: A New World Order (BBC2).
I worked as a Sound Dramaturg for National Theatre Wales ‘A Proper Ordinary Miracle’, working alongside musicians, community workers and choirs in Wales. I am a member of BAFTA Connect, where I have worked alongside developers in numerous Game Jams and Welsh-funded games, writing music and sound effects. Examples can be found on the Games page of my website.
I have composed production albums for a variety of well-known music production companies, including KPM, Bleach Music Productions, Motus Music, Hummingbird Music, West One Music, Reliable Source Music, and No Sheet Music. My albums span a wide range of genres, from traditional Middle Eastern and Middle Eastern Pop to Trap, Traditional Balkan and Balkan Ska, and even Reflective, Investigative, Dark, and Neutral Underscores.
