On this episode of Swing Sister Swing Nancy Hitzig interviews joined by Daisy Coole composer, saxophonist flautist and one half of the composition duo to Two Twenty Two. She composed the score for the award-winning feature film Asked for Jane starring Alison Right and Sarah Steele. And they also composed for a short documentary entitled Six Year Old Fears, which premiered at the 2017 United Nations General Assembly screamed on BBC Arabic and was part of a UN FPA funding bid for the maternal health care in a refugee camp in Jordan. We talk to Daisy about how she approached her first ever crowdfunding campaign, what tips and tricks she used and how she made the transition from being an instrumentalist to a composer.
Quote Daisy Coole -
My primary anxiety going into it but also the thing that I think actually helps is why would anyone care? Because if you know why they care you know why they will support you, and everyone is going to have a different reason for caring.
