Music by Andrea Boccadoro, Lyrics by Katharine Neil

Air-Edel Records have released an album of score and songs from Nyamyam video game ‘Astrologaster’, available from today across all major digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

The album features the witty lyrics of Katharine Neil, set to the charming themes of Andrea Boccadoro, recorded with a vocal quartet, lead by soprano Emily Dickens. The songs are an integral part of the game, moving the player through the levels and introducing the many characters in Shakespeare’s London.

Astrologaster is a story-driven astrological comedy game set in Shakespeare’s London, 1592. A great plague sweeps through the capital. When doctors flee the city in fear, a hero rises. His name is Simon Forman, “Doctor” of Astrology and Physick. Not only does he have the power to cure the sick, he can find their lost pets or even predict their futures, by reading the movements of the stars! 

But when the plague ends, Forman’s problems begin. The real doctors return to London and they will stop at nothing to expose Forman as a fraud and bring him down. But Doctor Forman is determined to prove them wrong! 

Astrologaster is based on a true – and truly ridiculous – story.

Andrea is an award-winning composer for film, theatre and visual media. An alumnus of The Royal
College of Music, Berlinale Talents and The Hospital Club Emerging Creatives Programme, he was
born and raised in Rome, where he pursued both university and conservatoire studies, graduating with
honours in Philosophy as well as Music Composition. In 2013 he moved to London and completed his
education at the RCM with a Distinction MMus in Composition for Screen.
In 2019, he received the Prix Cinézik for the original music of ‘Scaramouche Scaramouche’ (dir. Arthur
Môlard) at the 20th Aubagne International Film Festival. In the same year, he was also awarded the
Universal Music Publishing Award at the 14th Cortinametraggio film festival, for the music of
‘L’Interprete’ by Hleb Papou. In 2015, he received a Jerry Goldsmith Award for his composition ‘Song
For Adele’.
Recently, Andrea was commissioned to compose 15 madrigals and motets for the characters of the
video game ‘Astrologaster’ (Nyamyam). In 2018, Andrea assisted Japanese Academy Award winner
Gabriele Roberto on the Italian TV series ‘La Compagnia Del Cigno’, produced by Indigo Film in
collaboration with Rai Fiction. In 2017, he co-wrote the title music and additional music to the feature
film ‘Il Contagio – Tainted Souls’ by Matteo Botrugno and Daniele Coluccini, which premiered at the
74th Venice International Film Festival and was theatrically released in Italy.
Andrea’s work has been broadcast on RAI, SKY CINEMA, CBC, and screened at international film
