I’m an adaptive music composer and sound designer. I make music and sound behave in unusual ways, often reacting or adapting itself to listeners behaviour, mood or situation. I build systems which utilise many techniques including procedural generation and artificial intelligence to create adaptive, reactive, interactive and generative music and sound.
I am currently working on a wide range of projects, creating music and sound systems for health, exercise, meditation, virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence.
In August 2014 I worked with Artists & Engineers and Atmos Studio to create a 3d ambisonic soundscape for Arboreal Lightning – a huge interactive LED tree installation at the heart of Imogen Heap’s Reverb festival.
From 2009 to April 2014 I was Chief Creative Officer and Interactive Music Composer at RjDj. At RjDj I was a part of the team that created the iOS applications Inception the App (6 million downloads), The Dark Knight Rises Z+, Dimensions, RjDj and Rj Voyager. My role at RjDj involved music composition, production and programming. I was also extensively involved in product design.
I have worked with Imogen Heap, Hans Zimmer, Richard King, Junkie XL / Tom Holkenborg, Air, Carl Craig, Little Boots, Bookashade, Jimmy Edgar, Chiddy Bang, Console / Acid Pauli, Sophie Barker (Zero 7) and Kirsty Hawkshaw (Opus III, Orbital, Tiesto).
From 2005 to 2009 I created 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 Virtual Reality 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 / sonic game. I have the strange honour of creating the first soundtrack to an online 3d presence of a country – commissioned by Mexico Tourist Board.
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 studied media composition, with Peter Howell (Radiophonic Workshop) before starting media projects.
