Chris Neal is an Australian musician, songwriter and television and film music composer. In 1968, the opportunity arose to assist legendary composer Peter Sculthorpe create the score for the Anglo/Australian movie The Age Of Consent, starring first-timer Helen Mirren. Then followed the creation of the hippie, flower-power rock musical, Manchild, which toured Australian capital cities during 1971/72, creating several box-office records along the way. A focal point of the early '70s was the creation of the solo prog rock album Winds Of Isis. This epic instrumental outing developed a small, but committed following and remains in demand to this day. He has created soundtracks for various successful Australian film and television productions, including Buddies, Shadow of the Cobra, Turtle Beach, Johnson and Friends, Lift Off, Farscape, Kaboodle, GP, Li'l Elvis Jones and the Truckstoppers and many others, often working in collaboration with his son, Braedy.
