COMPOSITION & SOUND DESIGN
'Gwlaskor' is a series of compositions based around the lives and landscapes of Cornwall, on any given day. The project was given funding by Hall for Cornwall as part of their Creation Space programme. I was given the opportunity to work with industry specialists to research and develop the project for a future performance/film.
In 2018, I composed 'Minding Mama', for the launch of author Elaine J Jacksons latest comic book trailer under the same title.
In Nov 2018 I did the Sound Design for Hireth, written by Ed Rowe (aka Kernow King) directed by Kneehigh's Simon Harvey & featuring music by legendary folk artist Seth Lakeman. Marking the centenary of World War I & performed in St Just's Grade 2 Listed Miners Chapel, this new play tells the story of Harry Elton starting a new life below ground mining for tin whilst across the channel, a Great War rages.
The Last Train to Budapest
In 2011 I composed the score for the short film 'The Last Train to Budapest', directed by Lee Deaville. The film was based on the novel of the same name by Richard Pekar, who told the real life story of his fathers escape from Communist Hungary in the 1950's.
In 2016 my composition 'The Methusaleh Paradox', a track I composed for the launch of a book of the same title by Elaine Jackson, was featured in the surf film 'Dulce', directed by Patrick McMahon. This movie was filmed in a remote area of Southern Costa Rica where I had spent some time the previous year. The film won several awards and was screened at festivals across the US and South America.
