Welcome to my website. The last stop before the end of the web.
The kickstarter campaign for my Periodic Table of Musical Instruments, in support of Mind UK was a success. A big Thank you to all the backers. x
The whole score is effortlessly charming, with real warmth, and an engaging personality that mirrors Lumley’s own. The instrumental textures d’Oliveira employs are consistently interesting, blending together in a series of excellent combinations, and the scope of the score perfectly encapsulates the heart of the project.

“lovingly crafted and perfectly realised little jewel; I only wish it were longer”
album review by Michael Beek
“Instead of making me try to associate it with the TV show, Miguel d’Oliveira’s creation stirs my imagination and lets it fly freely.
This is what good film music is all about.”
“It is playful from start to finish and the orchestration is light and really fun to listen to.
This music takes me on a journey to places I have never been. It feels magical and beautiful.”
“From bold, bright and dynamic to more nuanced lyrical, melancholic and even slightly sarcastic themes. All written with a lot of class.”
“Trans-Siberian Adventure is a charming, uniformly lovely score whose only drawback is that there isn’t more of it.” ****
“The composer put together a quirky ensemble and stuck with it. It’s incredibly pleasant on the ear.
It has some beautiful and magical moments.”
This is a great effort from Miguel d’Oliveira who showcases some rather impressive writing”
