If you have any interest in electronic music of any sort, you should really check out this Australian documentary about electronic music in Britain and EMS in particular.

It wasn’t all Radiophonic Workshop you know.

Sadly, I wasn’t waiting in the wings with my Les Paul strapped on, ready to dash on the the cheers of an adoring crowd, but sneaking on quietly during Fall Out Boy’s set to chat with one of Nine Inch Nails’ guitar techs who was right in front of that big stack of gear you can see.

 

 

Maybe next time…

Mosrite Fuzzrite Clone the Fuzzmite

This pedal is awesome! It ended up being quite expensive once I had paid the import duty on it, but it was worth it.

Instant Spaghetti Western 🙂

Flight Paths – An Opera

My first opera commission, Flight Paths, composed to a libretto by Adam Strickson, was premiered in Bridlington Spa in September 2011.

The opera formed part of a large project, Wingbeats, of which Adam was the lead artist. The project included a second opera by Cheryl Frances-Hoad entitled Amy’s Last Dive, as well as numerous other dance, poetry and art projects around the East Yorkshire area.

Recently, a book about the project written by Adam himself was released containing DVDs of performances of both operas.Image

Resident Evil 6 Trailer

This is the new Resident Evil 6 trailer that I composed the music for. It was a really strict brief and a fast turnaround, but was still a lot of fun to do. I was also lucky enough to enlist the talents of  the amazing Lauryna Šablevičiute on piano and the fab Joe Reiser as recording engineer/producer.
Enjoy!
