"Composing is like having the ability to tap into the soul of others."

BIO

I like to define myself through the language of collaboration, be it my clients' projects, the audience, the performance space or the artists I work with. It's not about constructing boundaries; it's about proving there are none. The fun is surprising and delighting those you work with. Because, when you constantly go beyond what you and those around you dream is possible, you do not just meet project expectations, you exceed them. I love exploring music as a means of communication, with its ability to represent narrative, imagery and abstract ideas.

 

I graduated in music from Dartington Hall in the UK in 1997 and also have an MA in composition. I am now based in Brno in the Czech Republic. In 2010, I first worked with the Brno Filharmonie, composing a new orchestral score, commissioned for the Palace Film Festival, for Murnau’s 1928 silent masterpiece, Sunrise, with live performances in Prague and Brno.

 

I also compose for co-authored audio-visual installations for art galleries and public spaces, with my VJ colleague David Konecny, as Stranger in the Alps. These include Silent Sirens, Obtuse Angles and a planetarium 3D fulldome show, Arrows of Time - a Tribute to Doctor Who, which I also authored. I write music for computer games and other multi-media formats and am the author of seven books.

I concentrate a lot of my work on sound design and electronic manipulated music. I am currently working with the next phase of Stranger in the Alps.
