The soundtracks and scores to the films you love

    Sia

    Sia

    Welcome to the last episode, of the first season, of Film on the Radio! This week we’re going to do something a little bit different and cover the work of an artist over many different films, instead of just a single film. I’ve been working really hard this season to highlight female musicians in soundtrack and film scoring… and one of the most successful is our very own, Sia Furler. With contributions to over 25 film soundtracks it was a difficult task whittling down her substantial catalogue. And, of course, no discussion about screen music and Sia can be complete without the Six Feet Under finale. Thanks for listening and tell your friends about this show!
