Personal profile

Biography

A musician who composes and produces a range of styles and mediums including for solo instruments, ensembles, popular, electronic, concert music and music for media. Having produced a number of radio programmes about music I have also written a chapter on the Audio Object for Routledge.

Aged nine I won a scholarship to attend music school and therefore am a multi-instrumentalist with a classical training, having studied composition, piano and electronic music at Huddersfield University before going on to Kingston University, taking a PhD in music (awarded in 2015).

A Ricordi Prize Winner for Best Composition notable performers including Jane Manning OBE, Christopher Redgate, Rhodri Davies, and Kate Ryder have premiered my pieces.

Having collaborated with artists, film directors, other musicians there is a mathemusic and technological aspect to my work. There is a mathemusical aspect to my work, as I often consciously combine mathematical formulas, patterns and concepts to my musical composition and production practice. Technology also plays a very important role in my music producing. As a musician I have a strong capability in using various digital audio workstation (DAW) software including Logic X, Sibelius, Max, Ableton, and Pro Tools.

Currently working on a number of outputs, including an electronic music Trilogy based on the writings and ideas of various thinkers from Bacon to Moore, to contemporary theories about Artificial Intelligence.

My works have been performed in concerts and festivals in Britain, on BBC national radio and Resonance FM, as well as on the European continent and in Australia.

Research Interests

Having collaborated with visual artists and filmmakers I’m always keen to explore new projects with new colleagues from across the spectrum of styles and genres.

Currently, I'm working on a a trilogy of post-punk-dystopian-synth-pop pieces, that explore notions of artificial intelligence in combination with scientific and material machinations from writers as diverse as Sir Francis Bacon, G. I. Gurdieff and Prof. Nick Bostrom.

I'm also investigating the potentiality of attempting to adapt reduced symmetry in mathematics into a digital signal process (DSP) for use in music production.
