Performance: Video Samples

To performance I bring my solid classical and jazz training; an extremely eclectic musical taste; a deep knowledge of music theory, arranging and music production; and a lot of experience in both contributing to an ensemble (orchestras on piano and clarinet, rock and pit bands on keyboards, a ska band on bass guitar); and leading bands and casts.

Anniversary Day

The music video for The Adults song; "Anniversary Day", filmed in 2012 at the Adults concert with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. The song is on the Adults album "Live with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra" . The beautiful arrangement is by Stephen Small. I'm on piano (and I arranged some of the other songs on the album).

Honking Antelope

From Serj Tankian's DVD "Elect The Dead Symphony". Fantastic arrangements from John Psathas. I'm on piano.

Empty Walls

From the same DVD.

Elaine Paige promo

Here's the promo for the DVD "Elaine Paige - Celebrating 40 Years on Stage". I played and programmed keyboards and sourced musicians for this 2008 Australia/NZ tour (and did the same for the 2012 Australia/NZ/China/Singapore tour). I'm visible in the darkness between Elaine and the incredible Chris Egan (MD/Piano).

Wuthering Heights

I'm on piano here - it's a clip from the concert DVD "Hayley Westenra: Live from New Zealand"
