London’s 1000 most influential people 2012

All 14 members of Danny Boyle’s creative team who worked on the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony are included in the Evening Standard’s “The 1000” list (London’s most influential people 2012) this year in recognition of how they put London’s creative industries on the world map.

Among Danny’s team was Rick Smith. Having collaborated with director Danny Boyle since the Trainspotting soundtrack, Smith and his longstanding music partner in the band Underworld, Karl Hyde, were booked for the big job this summer, curating the music for the London 2012 opening ceremony. Their music dominated the subsequent Isles of Wonder album.
