Music is something that naturally resonates inside of all of us, whether it’s an emotional orchestral piece that pulls on the heart strings, or a violently pumping drum and bass track that makes you want to lose yourself. I don’t know why it runs through my blood, and I don’t need to, but it’s there and I love it.
Music first properly made its way into my life when I picked up a guitar for the first time at the age of 11, as soon as I started ‘playing’ it instantly felt natural, and from then on it’s been an avalanche of song writing, composing, producing, performing and pretty much everything and anything musical that I could get involved with.
When I first started out as a composer, rock music was my main area of interest and I’ve been in a handful of bands since.
But in the past few years orchestral writing has become a lot more prominent in my style, giving me much more space to venture out to and explore. Although I am able to, I rarely write for just an orchestra alone, I prefer to give a fusion of styles and push the boundaries, often incorporating synthesis and other instruments into my pieces.
Since the start of the year I have been working on the soundtrack for a indie game called Filament, a story-rich and fully narrated puzzle game centred around solving sets of cable-based puzzles whilst exploring a seemingly abandoned spaceship. The game is being developed by Beard Envy, and has been an absolute pleasure to work on so far. If you would like to catch a glimpse at the reveal trailer then head on over to the homepage!
