I compose music — most of my output is slow, spacious and experimental.
I live and work in Lincoln, Lincolnshire (UK). Before this I worked in the British film industry, for an audio post-production company in Soho (London), on a variety of well received British and North American films and drama series.
I am currently creating Plates and False Self works. Plates are compositions for piano, bleeps and voice. The series is set around a fanciful psychometric test that I am developing. False Self compositions play with ideas of authorship, and a composers musical identity. They typically deploy found materials, and some kind of systematic musical process to arrive at a place that feels familiar, but somehow unnatural.
I've composed for a variety of projects such as contemporary dance, installation art and theatre — and had these works shown in Japan, Russia, Denmark, Italy and North America.
Recent work and a few favourite older projects are featured below:
False Self plays music for six pianos (2021) - Album - (Café OTO TakuRoku)
Plates, Vol 2: Mirrors (2020) - Two compositions for piano
Plates, Vol 1: Système sur-atonal (2020) - Two compositions for electric piano and one composition for synthesized flute
