Tyson Music

Accorder client Touch Productions is commissioning specially composed music for its documentary series on Mike Tyson’s love of pigeons for Animal Planet.

The series follows the former World Heavyweight boxing champ as he enters the mysterious world of pigeon racing, hoping to be crowned champ all over again.

Tyson has a deep passion for the birds and has raised pigeons all his life.  In fact his first-ever fight as a child was in defence of his birds. But this show, filmed in New York, will follow Tyson’s first foray into racing them competitively.

The programme is slated for US broadcast next year. The composer is Matthew Slater, who produced the music for Touch Productions’ Love in Numbers in 2010.
