PROJECTS

There are too many ideas, but here are some. I write, compose, visualise, and shape sound and combine them in different forms.

 

The Ridderbint Of Orskul

 

1.1.jpg

A book i started in 2011 that quickly became an audiobook, as well as an illustrated one. It became such a big production that it needed big budget and lots of time and help to complete. This is a true love of mine and will remain shelved until i have the facility to finish it. This is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what has been completed. There is plenty more music, story and even artwork. It just needs some love. One day.

VIEWING

 

An exercise in reacting, and not caring too much. It started with a video from my ipad of me dancing to some music (in the zone). The project after the initial dance became a reaction to seeing me on screen. I imported the video into pro tools and recorded reactionary voice overs to the first second and third time seeing it.

From there, how i mixed it aurally and visually and musically was intuitive, and mostly done in a few passes on the mixing desk just trusting each decision and moving on and not looking back, despite what my discerning or conditioned ears or eyes might want me to amend. Using my clunky limitations and enjoying them. A relief. Its a fucking relief (for me).

ALOURA PINES FINAL SCENE

This is my favourite piece of music i've composed. It involved hiring a 10 piece choir

and recording a church organ. It fit perfectly at the end of EP2 of Aloura Pines.
