Composing for stage
My compositions for live performance span genres from big band, to country, to classical - and everything in between.
Included here are clips from my work for Police Cops The Musical and The Starship Osiris, as well as two pieces that I composed for performance by The Royal Northern Sinfonia and Sacconi Quartet.

In 2021, I composed an original score for Police Cops The Musical - a brand new musical theatre production premiering in November 2021 at New Diorama Theatre.
In 2015, I composed and produced music for award winning Edinburgh Fringe show The Starship Osiris.
I designed the sound and composed the music for my team's entry to the Historically Accurate Game Jam 5 in January 2022, a browser-based tower defence game set in 14th-century Indonesia. The game placed 4th out of more than 100 entries to the jam.
Shipwreck Adventure is a browser-based platformer set in an underwater shipwreck featuring my sound design and original music. It was an entry to the Godot Wild Jam 41 in January 2022, the theme of which was the sea.
Sublime of Spring is a short film directed by Jules Deane which includes my original score. In this piece, I used several individual layers of piano recorded at different distances to create a mysterious, magical sound. Underneath the pianos, I recorded wine glasses tuned to different pitches, which added to the atmospheric, ethereal sound of the piece.
Sometimes I like to give myself a challenge, both for the joy of it and so that I can improve my practice. In this video, I have rescored a trailer made for the 2016 war Drama 'Their Finest'. I wanted to work on creating a realistic sounding orchestra using sample libraries and improve my ability to time cues.
