"couldn't have asked for a better composer"
"A delight to work with"
My latest collaboration with horror series producers Bloodycuts, a 13-minute short about a Ouija-board session gone awfully wrong, is available for viewing online now. Check out the title song in the latest music section above for a sample of my score.
Hot off the press is my latest short film score for The Square Orbit, a film-noir style science fiction short set in a world in which each person has only a limited number of words to speak before they die. I scored it using a classic noir palette, using brass, timpani and orchestral tutti extensively. Check out the preview link in the latest music section.
I have recently completed writing the music for the latest marketing campaign for sweets brand Skittles. The dubstep-style electronic track I produced is being used as part of a live event/film production for the new Upside Down Rainbow sweets.
I am very pleased to announce the successful conclusion of a further score for horror production company Bloodycuts. My score for Don't Move features detailed 20th century avant-garde style string arrangements and a soprano vocal part. I was also asked to write an original song for the credits, which I hugely enjoyed. Previews will be available soon. Don't Move premieres at the Edinburgh Bootleg Festival in March 2013.
A series of arrangements for the Vaults string quartet I wrote for cutting edge urban music video channel SBTV are being aired throughout spring and summer 2013. The project includes tracks by Akala, Devlin, Harry Shotta, Macca and Lunar C & True Tiger.
I'm currently putting finishing touches to my score for a documentary by White Mammoth Films about Bristol-based explorer and contemporary of Christopher Columbus, John Cabot. Some samples from the score will up here soon.
I recently completed writing the music for I Sing of Artemis, a feature-length documentary for Hewishmedia/Barking Deer Television. The score uses a pastoral palette of woodwinds, some brass and acoustic guitar and piano and includes some longer pieces which have been an exciting opportunity to explore larger-scale development of musical ideas.
Some music of mine was featured in Episode 4 of Channel 5's Great Northern Cookbook. Episode 4 was aired 19:00 on 24th January 2013.
