About

film music  |  theatre music  |  alternative electronic music  |  contemporary classical music

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

Whatever I'm working on, whether it's a film score, 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.
