Turtle Dove

“OK. When did you know it was love?” I had great fun making some music for Amy Morvell's new duet called Turtle Dove. All the sounds take their lead from some beautiful soundbites of people talking about love, that Amy had collected during her research. So rather writing music for contemporary dance on the theme…

Choreography of Sound- Preview Exhibition at The Point, Eastleigh

Huge thank you to The Point for hosting a preview of my immersive sound exhibition The Choreography of Sound. The exhibition gave me an opportunity to test some of the recordings I have made while researching the project, and get some audience feedback on what has been successful so far. Hear what it sounds like…

Do people with hidden disabilities hear sound differently?

In Brighton the sound of seagulls, traffic and people blend into a mixture of noise that most people have unconsciously trained their minds to filter out. Modern life has added a fairly invasive mix of mobile notification sounds, buzzing home appliances, music piped into every shop, self service check out machines, and phone waiting music…

NIX Christmas Advert- Original Music

Hope you're feeling in a Christmassy heartwarming mood because here's a short animation I scored for NIX. The film was produced by Cass Productions who brought me on board to write some original music for this rather special animation. NIX wanted to make something a bit more special than 'just' and advert and I think…

Soundtrack Design -The Enormous Room by Stopgap Dance Company

Depicted through a David Lynch-esque filmic style, The Enormous Room portrays a relationship between a father and a daughter who are trying to deal with grief.  The soundtrack for The Enormous Room is a complex mix of dreamy nostalgic music and household sound FX. When I first met Stopgap’s Artistic Director, Lucy Bennett, to discuss her creative ideas I knew instantly that…

Antechamber- Short Dance Film

Really excited to be finally able to share a short dance film that I've written the music for, called Antechamber. It was produced by Wigglyline Productions and features contemporary dancers Rosa Kentwood, Hayley Barker, and Janina Smith. It is beautiful and grotesque, and the production quality is exceptionally good. The movement was improvised on the day and it think the…

January 2013

Wow, what a flying start to 2013. Only a month has gone by, and amongst the snow and rain, I've already been involved in some fantastic projects. First there was Metsä, a short art film with Bella Kardasis, shot and recorded at Stanmer Park on a frosty morning; then the Mayakaras, Lila Dance's fantastic youth…

Movember

Its November, the month of fireworks, way too early christmas adverts, and thanks to the rise of Australian based charity 'Movember', moustaches. Helping to raise awareness and funds about men’s health, particularly prostate cancer, Movember encourages Men all over the world to embrace the tuft under their nose for the whole month of November. I'm…
