Portfolio 2021 - Sizzle Reel

This is a three-minute overview of work. There's music composition and sound design for games, theatre and online content; and some arrangements for orchestra and various recording artists.

Film/TV/Theatre/Game 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.
