Trigger Point, Chris Roe’s impassioned electro acoustic score to ITV’s high-octane drama starring stage and screen actor Adrian Lester MBE and Line of Duty’s Vicky McClure. Produced by Jed Mercurio for HTM television.
Set in contemporary London, Trigger Point focuses on stories about the Bomb Disposal Squad, known as “Expo”, with officers risking their lives daily. Vicky McClure plays Lana Washington, the reckless ex-military officer and experienced bomb disposal operative. The Guardian describes the series as “utterly preposterous… but what a blast. Vicky McClure and Adrian Lester star in this slick police thriller full of bomb factories and banter. Just go in thinking CSI: Peckham or Line of Bomb Duty and you’ll have a great time.”
Chris Roe’s contemporary score immerses the listener in the tense emotional world of the characters with tender moments assigned to cello melodies and processed string ostinatos. This is a powerful, yet understated score. Here, the inner life of characters is truly brought to life through the waves of honest, uncompromising sound.
