Sound Installation Project - Composition
In July 2019 I finished studying a BSc in Music and Sound Production Technology at Bournemouth University. For my dissertation project, I created a composition for Corfe Castle in Dorset, England. This composition was a creative representation of the history of the castle. The piece aimed to connect the listener with Corfe Castle, through the use of emotive music and immersive sound design & audio manipulation. The piece will take you on a creative journey from the humble beginnings of Corfe Castle, through its development, up until the modern day. You can listen to it in full just below (listen through headphones for an even more immersive experience!).
For historical authenticity, the melodic elements of this composition are based upon a 10th century piece of music, and all, but one, of the sounds were recorded on location at Corfe Castle and its surrounding areas. If you would like to find out more about this composition, about my methods, about my findings, or anything else, please do get in touch! (July 2019)
Score Recording Session
I had great fun recording one of my original soundtracks with a string quintet I had put together. The music was written for an AUB MA Film (which will be shared here when available!) which documents a family's overall love and positivity despite a Cancer diagnosis for one member. As such, the music is gentle; at times haunting and sad - but with an overall positivity. Please enjoy! (January 2018)
Game of Thrones Soundtrack Cover
To mark the end of Season 6 of Game of Thrones, I decided to make an arrangement of the soundtrack. I did it purely for the fun and practice, and I was lucky enough to get an awesome animation to accompany my music, as seen below.
The fantastic animation and thumbnail were made by Phil Rankin. (July 2016)
Some bonus things to listen to...
Below are some standalone tracks including original compositions, arrangements and collaborations. You will also find some recordings (where available) of my work as a musician in some of the groups and bands I play in. Enjoy!
