Below are some examples of original music I’ve created as a composer and film scorer.
If you’re interested in commissioning work or employing me, please don’t hesitate to be in contact!
To Awaken the Trees
The challenge: to write a piece using self-created samples only.
Some of the fun samples include:
- Blowing over a bottle
- A couple of toy glockenspiels I found around the house
- A mushroom hitting a kick drum
- A match lighting
- A bubbling stream
- My voice
- A plastic recorder pitch shifted down a couple of octaves to make the perfect bass
- My 130-year-old piano
Here’s part of ‘To Awaken the Trees’:

The challenge: I asked some of my author friends to tell me about their characters. Then I wrote a short theme that aimed to incapsulate that character. Click on the character names and scroll across to hear each one!
(Please note that while some of the films have a different name credited, it’s still me 😉)
