DJ Yoda / Get Involved

Barrier

Electronica, sort of.

I co-wrote this decidedly silly track for DJ Yoda's 2012 album Chop Suey. A collaboration with The Trans-Siberian March Band,  'Happy Hardcore' meets Balkan Brass. I also directed and produced a video for the track, which is possibly even more silly.

Short Film - Comedy Horror

I directed, produced, edited and wrote the music for this highly questionable  'zombie cookery' short film. It received a 10/10 review on ZMDB - the Zombie Movie Database. I flatly deny having anything else to do with it.

Music Concrete / Experimental

In my final year of the Tonmeister Course at the University of Surrey (1997) I won second prize in the Joyce Dixie composition competition for this piece which was composed from scratch during the course of the concert in which it was first performed. I did this by live sampling and processing audio from all other pieces as they were also being performed for the first time during the course of the same concert. I ran tie-lines from the classical studio in which the concert was held to a second studio where I did the sampling, processing and arrangement using an Akai S3000 XL sampler and Atari running Cubase sequencing software.
