My work as a composer and music producer includes live performances, arrangements and orchestrations, as well as an extensive portfolio of self produced music used in film and media. I am experienced writing for a range of ensembles, voices, and instrumentation spanning classical to pop, jazz, electronic and experimental. I love to collaborate and have worked with many other artists as a producer/engineer, directing, performing, and co-writing. My work as a professional double and electric bassist has enabled me to work throughout the UK jazz, experimental and folk music scenes. I have a BMus in Jazz performance from McGill University, Montreal and an MSc in Sound Design from Napier University. More info about my performance work is over on my music website

Sonables II

When I was making the original field recordings during winter 2021, I spent a lot of time discovering and then revisiting the recording locations. These places are incredibly inspiring, beautiful, and peaceful. Recording these locations was more like an act of meditation where I visited the relationships between music and nature. With Sonables II, I invite you to join me in my local region of Midlothian where some of my most favourite collaborations have been with trees and streams.

To enjoy these recordings the way they are intended, put on some headphones, close your eyes, and avoid distractions for a few minutes while you listen.

Ideas & Experiments

Exploration is the heart of my craft and artistry as a sound designer, composer, and bassist. Discovering texture, orchestrating the unusual and finding form and harmony that leads to new works. Here are a few videos looking at different approaches to those ideas.
