It might seem as if I’m on a break… - May 8, 2018

On the contrary, things are getting super hectic with a complete overhaul/rebranding of my site, a new showreel to feature on there, and a commission to write 100 tracks for a bespoke music library for the venerated Off The Fence Production company! Yeah, […]

Attenborough & the Sea Dragon, now on iPlayer! - January 14, 2018

Hey people, So the show I was working on for the BBC was this.. Attenborough & the Sea Dragon.

Except that the creature appears to have been horribly massacred […]

Deadly Instincts – 6 part series on National Geographic Channel - October 1, 2015

So the big job I was talking about in my last post was this… Deadly Instincts! I worked on this throughout the summer and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, though quite stressful at times since it required a LOT of music… 4 and a half hours of it in the end. Got it done […]

So, apart from composing for various productions this year, I’ve also been composing for a brand spanking new Music Library company that’s based right here in Bristol.

2014 Posts gone AWOL! - November 20, 2014

OK, so I’ve had a lot going on in my personal life this year.. a LOT. Some heavy duty stuff has happened, life-changing on many levels. With all this turmoil it seems that I’d forgotten to actually publish my previous posts, which were all sitting in my ‘drafts’ folder with their arms crossed. So for […]

The Wonderful 6 part series Middle Kingdom Ride is finally all done and dusted, and looks AMAZING!

Big shout out to Kyle Murdoch, […]

Amersfoort impressions – Push Me Pull You show - August 22, 2012

Amersfoort has been lovely, but incredibly intense… full days, 11-12 hours of writing music, discussing, mixing, recording, rehearsing… I’ve never composed on site before and am so used to having meetings over the phone to discuss what is needed that to be here, with performers, seeing how the music affects the show and being able […]

Pearl River Tower - October 23, 2010

Pearl River was great to work on, it has high energy, pace, and a fascinating storyline about the world’s first ever sustainable building (see more on the Architecture firm SOM’s website). I finished the project in mid June and started exploring other avenues. One of these has been working on some tracks to submit to […]

John Parish 2nd World War series - September 26, 2008

The John Parish 2nd World War session went very well indeed, and you can hear the results in the personal projects section of the music player. ‘German Girl’ is sounding like a pop classic, while ‘I am the Kite’ is a chilled out ballad, definitely one to relax to. We’re currently producing and mixing the […]
