composing music, sound art & design
Specialising in music and narrative and soundscape, I compose music for media and performing arts. I have been composing to brief professionally since 2002, when following completing an MA in composing music for film and TV I received the BBC Radio Drama composer-in-residence bursary. I have composed music across genres for numerous dramas, documentaries for film and performance, such as the BBC series Tommies, and Outsiders, and the award-winning US podcast The Heist. I have created critically acclaimed through-composed narrative work, described as ‘composed features’ commissioned by the BBC and international broadcasters, this work marries soundscape, field recording and electroacoustic composition with narrative, speech and scored instrumentation. I co-create socially engaged arts projects, and am a singer-songwriter.
Original music for BBC Radio 4 Outsiders - a five part series where Radio 4 invites five writers to tell us about the ways in which the pandemic has changed their relationship with the outside world.
