SABRE Festival February 2020 

In February 2020 my colleague Dave Payling and I were invited to present our work at the SABRE festival at the Zurich University of the Arts. I had no idea at the time but it was to be my last trip before the Covid-19 lockdown. A really inspiring few days!

HeatWork Middleport Pottery 

My colleague Dave Payling composes audiovisual music. Last year (2019) we received Arts Council funding to create an audiovisual work exploring the history of the potteries industry in our local area. The work was written for the Accecer8 brass band, Matthias Mueller on Sensor Enhanced Bass Clarinet, Electronics and visuals. I composed the music and the electronic parts. Theses images are from the premiere at Middleport Pottery in Stoke on Trent in November 2019.  You can see a video of the visuals with the electronics elements (but without the acoustic instruments) here.

Cheadle Academy Choir 

Around January 2019 the Cheadle Academy 6th Form Choir contacted us to help them produce a charity single. I ended up arranging and producing the track. It was a great project to be involved with. Not sure how much of an achievement getting into the charts is these days, but it did raise a lot of money! You can listen to the single here.
