film  |  tv  |  theatre  |  electronic  |  contemporary classical

My musical influences are huge, ranging from: cinematic, orchestral, classical, minimalist, epic, folk, world, jazz, ambient, experimental, alternative, lo-fi, drone, prog rock, electronic and electroacoustic styles (so, lots!).

Whatever I'm working on, whether it's a film score, a track intended for TV, a theatre piece or a piece of music for live musicians, I like working with new combinations of sounds to evoke emotions in a fresh way. I use everything from traditional instruments to synthesisers, electronics, field recordings and everyday objects. Every project is a chance to get into a musical costume and help tell a great story.
