Guy Farley : Legacy : Music inspired by Sir Douglas Bader

Guy Farley Legacy

Guy Farley is a British musician and composer based in London. He is a film composer whose work includes orchestral scores, world music, contemporary sound design and has also collaborated with pop artists and producers.

In 2018 Guy composed a musical tribute to Sir Douglas Bader entitled Legacy. In partnership with the Douglas Bader Foundation, Legacy pays tribute to Sir Douglas Bader, and all those who have overcome disabilities in their lives.

In writing Legacy, Guy is composing a piece of music not simply about Douglas Bader and his journey, but about a person’s journey with disability, and that universal human struggle against adversity. It is inspired by the heritage and sounds of the Second World War, and captures the essence of Bader’s life with disability.

By bringing in the sounds of the Battle of Britain, like the famous air-raid siren and the scramble-bell which sent pilots into action, and alluding to the famous songs of the era like It’s a long way to Tipperary, Guy expects Legacy to immerse the listener in a story, and accentuate its drama.

Music from Legacy was used to accompany a touring air-show put on by the Douglas Bader Foundation called The Bader Bus co, in which the world’s first team of disabled pilots fly in formation, conquering their own disabilities, and pay tribute to the late Sir Douglas.
