Production Music

iPA: A theatre production

Part of a set of pieces written for Bloomin' Arts - a theatre company for adults with learning disabilities. The play is called iPA and looks at how disabled people would interact with ultra efficient artificially intelligent support androids. The outcome, perhaps inevitably, is a sinister one...

Original Songwriting

The Briefs Project

For several months fellow musician Jem Clark and I briefed each other to write a piece of music. The point of this was purely to stop talking about writing and actually do some tunes! Most months featured a theme and a challenge! These were some of my responses...
