Consultation & Guest Speaking

Combining my knowledge of arts and media with experience in academia, I offer consultation in the areas I practice and research,

Examples of recent consultation work: 

Development support with pitching and designing projects: 

I have been successfully pitching ideas to BBC Radio since 2002, and help companies and individuals  by acting as an outside voice, viewing the pitch in the context of the brief,  stress testing, offering feedback and making suggestions and recommendations. 

I also executive produce and consult on realising  audio production and podcasts.  If you're new to this area I can consult with you about production processes, people and budgets and help you decide the best route for your project before you go into production.

Music and Narrative

Alongside composing music for narrative, I offer support with music supervision and research and have helped select music for numerous BBC productions.

Sound art and design

 

If you are intending to incorporate a sound element in an arts or heritage project,  I can advise on practical and creative considerations during the development period.

I regularly contribute to a wide variety of arts industry events; in recent years this has included judging the Ivor Novello Awards and BBC Audio Drama Awards. I also give guest lectures, talks and present at conferences, including at The Slade school of Fine Art; The Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship; IRCAM in Paris and The BBC Current Affairs Department.
