Music and audio production, TV / Film / Video

Innovative bespoke music / sound design for screen, audio drama & VR. Clients inc. BBC, ITV, Sky, C4, Al Jazeera, BBC Radio 3/4, National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company

I'm an award-winning composer and sound designer creatign immersive, detailed music and sound scores for drama and documentary on TV, radio, film and in the theatre, with a substantial track record of commissions from national broadcasters and theatre companies, including BBC Radio and BBC TV, Channel 4, ITV and Sky, and leading theatres around the UK including the RSC, National Theatre and West End. Drawing on a huge range of eclectic influences, my work ranges from sweeping orchestral music to quirky and innovative sound design, all accompanied by supreme flexibility and good humour at every stage of the production process. Based near Bristol, and working from my broadcast-standard Pro Tools-based studio, I have access to a wide range of outstanding instrumentalists with whom I work regularly. I have a particular reputation for the quality of my work under time-pressure (especially in television / media production chains) and pride myself on my ability get to the nub of a brief rapidly and effectively, and my consistent delivery of outstanding and innovative music and audio solutions. 'Nothing is too much to ask, no timeline is impossible, and there is simply no style or form of music he can't deliver' (Neil Gardner: producer, BBC)
