I’m a Sound and Music Creative Practitioner living in Hackney, London, UK.
Ever since I can remember, music and sound have played a very central role in my life. I grew up playing instruments, writing music and rifling through my parents’ vinyl collections. I have a BMus (Hons) from Goldsmiths, University of London, and an MA in Sonic Arts from Middlesex University London.
I’ve written songs since I was a teenager, teaching myself guitar, and playing my first gigs in indie bands. I’ve recorded and produced my songs and collaborated with a number of different electronic music producers, releasing material my own imprint, Little Doll Records, and on other labels including Catskills and Hed Kandi. I’ve gigged extensively on the London acoustic circuit, collaborating with many fantastic acoustic musicians.
Collaboration has regularly been a central theme in my work and I’ve worked extensively in dance and theatre as a composer and sound designer, writing scores, making electroacoustic soundscores, and creating sound designs for productions and performances.
Site specificity and an interest in environment has featured regularly in my work, first appearing in many of the pieces for dance that I collaborated on, and continuing as a theme in my more recent sound work for gallery spaces.
I have lectured in Music and Choreography at London Contemporary Dance School at The Place, London, since 2008. I have also lectured for Birkbeck, University of London in Music and Sound for Contemporary Dance. Prior to this I lectured in Sonic Arts and Collaborative Processes at Trinity Laban.
