BIO

 I am a freelance composer for Film, Theatre and Dance currently living in Falmouth, Cornwall. Over the past 5 years, I have been developing my career as a composer and have worked on several projects of note: Long Way Back (o-region 2021); A Short Film About Ice (Black Cat Films 2020), HIRETH (o-region 2018), In My Head (Emily Alden 2019), The One Memory of Flora Banks (Hall For Cornwall 2020), Our Youth Grows In A Wasteland (Urban Wilderness 2020), Gwlaskor (Hall For Cornwall 2018). In January 2021 I released Digital Repetitions, an EP of ambient works, which has picked up average monthly listeners of +15000 since it's release.  I have also established a career as a Music Director, leading community choirs, workplace choirs and for the St Petrocs’ homeless charity. I worked on Carols From The Cornish Diaspora and Glad Sounds (Arts Council) projects, bringing together singers to perform lost songs taken overseas during the Diaspora period. I have worked on other community projects such as CYMAZ Music, Carefree, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Cornwall Council and Tate St Ives as well as co-ordinating an award-winning Youth Music-funded project for WILD Young Parents Project.

SOLO PIANO WORKS

I’ve worked very hard to develop my specific style of piano composition. My piano works are both emotive and programmatic and I strive to place narrative at the heart of my work. I have recently begun tutelage from the piano great Lubomyr Melnyk, inventor of 'Continuous Music'.

ELECTRONIC AMBIENCE

Sonic landscapes can give atmosphere to the visuals of Film and Television just as powerfully as a full orchestral suite. I create soundscapes that use elements of sound design, field recordings and synthesizers to set an atmospheric tone for shots.

ORCHESTRAL

I’ve been in the music industry for a number of years, learning and perfecting my craft.I am happy to compose music for big sweeping orchestral scores as well as minimalist small ensembles.
