James Kenelm Clarke

James Kenelm Clarke wrote music for our screens for over 60 years – film soundtracks, TV themes, library music. James first composed for the Standard Music Library in 1968, contributing to a number of the initial releases. Over the decades James has been behind a wealth of classic library music across a range of labels.

He also produced and directed films including the 1978 version of The Thirty Nine Steps and cult classics Funny Money, Paul Raymond’s Erotica, The Music Machine and Hardcore.

Through Standard Music we represent the Musica Britannica label founded by James, exhibiting a diverse range of moods and styles and showcasing James’s ear for melody and undeniable talent for a ‘good tune’.

We sadly lost James in 2020.
