His expertise in combining cutting-edge electronics with evocative instrumental scores has made him a sought-after collaborator by several of the most in-demand composers working today, including two-time Emmy award-winner John Lunn (Downton Abbey, Grantchester, Belgravia), Emmy award nominee Ruth Barrett (Sanditon, Bloodlands), and Grammy and Ivor Novello nominee Ben Onono (Ridley Road, Safe).
Saul is co-composer of the music for the No.1 Netflix show The Last Kingdom (2018-2023) as well as the feature-length final instalment Seven Kings Must Die (2023), alongside Lunn and the multi-award winning Faroese vocal sensation Eivør Pálsdóttir. The soundtrack album Destiny Is All featuring music from the series and movie is out now on A&G Songs.
