BBC COMPOSER-IN-RESIDENCE

It was a huge honour to be appointed Composer-In-Residence to the BBC in London. I composed the music to 36 productions and was lucky enough to be the recipient of several UK industry awards for my work. Highlights include Witness: The Gospel According to Luke, The City Speaks & Sleepy Hollow.

BBC I, CLAUDIUS

I was commissioned by the BBC to compose the soundtrack for the new series of Robert Graves’ I, Claudius. The original series was broadcast in the 70’s and gained cult status. This new critically acclaimed production stars Derek Jacobi, Tim Mckinnerny and Tom Goodman-Hill and won the Audie Award.

BRISBANE POWERHOUSE: GENERATOR

The Brisbane Powerhouse is a beautiful old building that has a rich and dramatic history. I spent a month interviewing and recording old powerhouse workers, historians, architects, politicians, graffiti artists (including Blek Le Rat), protestors and engineers and then I pieced all the narratives together with location sound and music to convey the buildings history. It is as epic as it sounds. GENERATOR is now available as an app on the App Store.

BBC RICHARD III

To celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday the BBC broadcast the classic 2004 production of Richard III starring Douglas Henshall and Geraldine James. I composed the soundtrack which features gamelan, 24 inch gong, dragon drum, shakers and extended playing techniques on the violin and cello.

PIANO & ELECTRONICS

A new album is finally underway. One Thousand Birds is inspired by Basho, Ravel & 70’s prog synth music. The album centres around analogue synthesizers, temple gongs, arpeggiators & bosendorfer piano. This will be my fifth and most experimental studio album.

ZUZU AND THE SUPERNUFFS

“A trail-blazing intergalactic radio star anxious to escape her serious life, discovers she has magical powers when five furry aliens crash land in her room.” I have composed a supercool retro soundtrack for sci-fi, punk-girl series, ZuZu and the Supernuffs. The music is scored for orchestra and analogue synthesiser and the show has worldwide distribution on the Nelvana owned KidsCo channel.
