Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have been playing together via various incarnations (The Bad Seeds, Grinderman) for more than a decade, but it has only been in recent years that they have teamed up to compose music for a variety of film, documentaries and theatre.

The Cave and Ellis collaboration began in earnest with the soundtrack for The Proposition (2005) and they have since gone on to compose music for ‘Lawless’, ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’, ‘The Road’, ‘The Girls of Phnom Penh’ and ‘The English Surgeon’ amongst others – with music ranging from lush, richly textured orchestrated score work, to haunting instrumental mood pieces and more traditionally crafted songs.
