Featured video examples of my composition and performance (click on the buttons for more examples):

Game music/audio showreel

I gravitate towards stylish video games, and aim to explore the huge potential of interactive music / sound design and to dig deep into the implementation of it into the game engine. The result is audio that seamlessly supports the action onscreen in a convincing way, no matter what the player does.

Film/TV/theatre composition

In music and sound that supports some kind of linear narrative or imagery, I love contrast and detail. I love evoking feelings and supporting and enhancing mood. Having created music and sound design for live theatre since the start of my career has informed work in the other disciplines.

To performance I bring my solid classical and jazz training, along with 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. I proud to be the pianist for the CHCH Symphony Orchestra, and a 'muso' since 1997 for the improvised drama company The Court Jesters.
