I compose music for media and performing art and specialise in music and narrative, and creating through composed narratives. My work frequently marries soundscape and electroacoustic composition with narrative, voice and scored instrumentation.

by verd de gris arts
A poetic exploration of ageing and dementia.
I've had the pleasure of working with the arts development company verd de gris on several projects since 2007. For Soul Journeying Sharon and Jeff gave me a score of words to improvise a piano score - this was then incorporated into the final film.
Digital Visions - The Garden
A film by Mark Bond
For this collaborative project, I co-composed the music for Mark's film with Danny Keane.
