Steve posts on Dec. 1st -

Turin, beautiful city, and a warm, appreciative reception for the film. I’ll post a couple of videos when I get home. It was great to meet everyone in the flesh, after getting to know them so well on the celluloid. What’s next... the film will journey to more festivals and eventually reach the wider public. It’s a film that will touch everyone. Without giving the story away I would describe it as a strange Romeo and Juliet story.. Romeo (Neil) is a schizophrenic tuba player, who believes he has been invited to join a famous rock band. His Juliet (Tom) is suffering from a serious anorexia nervosa. Powerful dialogues, a very moving picture.

'Don’t Forget Me' Sweeps Turin Film Festival Awards


Steve told me, via Facebook - I composed, performed and recorded the score, working closely with Ram and Nitai to find the intention they were after. They love music, Nitai is also a musician, so it was interesting working with them. I would love to work with them again. Also the film they wrote together, with Moon, is a wonderful story, dark and strong, with humor. I hope it gets shown everywhere...

Nitai Gvirtz , screenwriter and actor in Don't Forget Me , writes on Facebook

1 December at 19:49 ·

About a year ago, Ram called me up saying that our German producer christoph petzenhauser got in touch with a British musician/composer name Steve to start working on the music for our film.

Steve immediately sent some wonderful music, we got on skype, he was super nice, so modest and easy going, we had a cool talk and off he went back to work and kept on sending amazing options and ideas.

A few days later, I set down with christoph and ram for a drink and christoph was like-
"you guys know who Steve is, right?"

"It's Steve nieve, the keyboardist/pianist from Elvis Costello and the attractions/imposters"

All I could think or say at that moment was a long "fuuuucccckkkk..." As my jaw hits the table- I was shocked. I'm still a bit shocked...

This man is a legend, for me and for so many people, musicians or not. obviously- rock n' roll hall of famer and one of a very few musicians who actually changed something in the sound and creativity of how popular and indie music have been played for the last 40 years throughout the world.
When you think of Elvis's songs you fucking remember that intense unusual piano hitting with these low fi distorted keys, Providing such unique intensity and classic melodies, supporting king Costello in he's own front man world class magical songs and vocals.

Steve has done so much, composing, arrangements, collaborating with so many top greats and I will add he's wiki here just for show(off).
But after all this long intro-

I just want to write a public thanks to my new friend.
and tell him how lucky and grateful we all are to have such an amazing, kind and talented man on our team, who provided us with such beautiful music, with "love and understanding" (Wonderful Elvis song) for the film and characters.

He says that he fell in love with the film right away- we (I) fell in love with his incredible music and persona, in a sec.
So special. Wow.

Ciao from Torino,
Nitai

This may have been posted elsewhere, but was new to me today.

On Steve's own website there is a link to a "show reel" of music he has written for film, TV and commercials. He is seriously inviting film makers to work with him on the music for their films. The link for "One Shot of Happy - The Film Music of Steve Nieve " is here:

Music 4 films

I for one did not know Steve had written the music for a Lloyds Bank TV commercial.

A nice mix of styles, and quite different from his work with EC.
