I’m a composer, music producer and interactive music programmer.
I am the CCO and Interactive Music Composer at RjDj. I work here with a team of talented technologists and creatives, including Michael Breidenbrucker the founder, CEO and creative lead at RjDj ( who also co-founded Last.fm ) and CTO Christian Haudum.
Here I have been a part of the team that created the iOS applications Inception the App, The Dark Knight Rises Z+, Dimensions, RjDj and Rj Voyager. My role at RjDj involves music composition, production and programming. I am also extensively involved in product design.
As part of my role at RjDj I have be lucky enough to work with Imogen Heap, Hans Zimmer, Air, Carl Craig, Little Boots, Bookashade, Jimmy Edgar, Chiddy Bang, Console / Acid Pauli and many more great artists.
I have also independently produced and remixed Sophie Barker (Zero 7) and Kirsty Hawkshaw (Opus III, Orbital, Tiesto).
From 2005 to 2009 I founded Dizzy Banjo, a small music production studio providing bespoke music for a wide range of clients including Nintendo/Curve Studios, Revlon, Czech National Radio, Mexico Tourist Board, Costa Rica Tourist Board, and Princeton University.
Many of these projects were music for radio, advertising, and video games. I also worked on a number of sound installation projects during this time and worked with sound artist Leanda Brass for her sound artwork accompanying the first holographic portrait of HRH Queen of England.
I have also created a number of 3d virtual interactive music installations. The included commissions for interactive works by Princeton University and the pioneering Parsec project, which converted VOIP software into a 3d interactive multiplayer musical game. I have the strange honour of creating the first soundtrack to an online 3d presence of a country – commissioned by Mexico Tourist Board.
Prior to Dizzy Banjo, I was part of the duo The Dunes, with the singer songwriter Sarah-Jane Taylor, with Dave Rowntree’s (Blur) ‘Transistor Project’ label. We played a number of venues around the London area and were planning an album. The Dunes went their separate ways and so I did a short course in media composition, with Peter Howell (Radiophonic Workshop).
