Personal profile

Biography

Musician, producer and composer who makes the occasional radio programme and sporadically writes about a variety of music topics.

As a child won a scholarship to study piano, cello and composition at music school. Aged 13 got a job waiting tables and saved up for a year to buy first AKAI synthesiser, later also bought an Alesis MIDI sequencer. At University learned music technology and has gone on to compose and produce for the concert stage, radio and film – he won the Ricordi Prize for Best Composition.

Having collaborated with artists, film directors, other musicians there is a mathemusic and technological aspect to his work, including patterning and concepts for musical composition/ production practice. Technology also plays a very important role in his music producing, with a strong capability in using various digital audio workstation (DAW) software including Logic X, Max, Ableton, and Sibelius.

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.

Currently working on a number of projects including an electronic music Trilogy based on the writings and ideas of various thinkers from Bacon to contemporary theories about Artificial Intelligence (AI).

His 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.
