Thanks for visiting. Here you’ll find out a bit more about me and my work as a composer and musician as well as a bit about Catalyst Global Media, the production company that I co-founded back in 2015…
Besides my family, my first passion is all things music and sound. I divide my time between composing and performing for film, tv and now also immersive content, touring the world with electronic artist Bonobo, and heading up Catalyst Global Media’s in-house immersive storytelling division – Catalyst Interactive.
First and foremost I am a classically trained professional cellist and trombonist with a Masters scholarship from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
Since leaving my professional education I spent the next few years recording and touring with a plethora of incredible artists – including Radiohead, Florence Welch, The Who, Bat For Lashes, The Cinematic Orchestra and Unkle, and the amazing Sixto Rodriguez – as well as becoming a key musician to a smaller number of bands, which includes my ongoing involvement with the electronic artist Simon Green AKA Bonobo.
My first foray into the film world came when I was asked to provide musical arrangements for director Richard Eyre for his Academy Award® nominated film “Notes On A Scandal”. I keep my composing work up to date on IMDb (link below), with my latest project being the Netflix film, Malevolent, starring Florence Pugh and Celia Imrie, which I scored for Sigma Films (Under the Skin) with the production company that I co-founded with my super-producer wife, Catalyst Global Media, executive producing.
Through Catalyst my musical journey continues to expand as I dive into the exciting world of interactive, immersive storytelling, recently setting up the company’s interactive arm.
There is a signature style to how I work – a self-extemporised mix of performance and production, constructed of shape-shifting sounds, spectral spiralling strings, resonating brass and effects – hopefully creating a soundscape and compelling world of ideas which makes each project very different from the last.
I hope you enjoy 🙂
