Here is a collection of music I have written. Some of it for fun, some for the various projects I have worked on.
This is a piece of music that I wrote for the first in a series of videos produced by Dan Thornton of Alibi Pictures.
This is a piece of music that I wrote for fun, using video and audio content recorded while on holiday in Perthshire, Scotland. It was also my first time experimenting with the Wavetable synthesiser in Ableton Live. The visuals were designed in Jitter and triggered by audio events.
This is a piece of music that I wrote for the Voyager project, that had an initial development residency sponsored by SURGE and Creative Scotland in July of 2019. The piece was inspired by the works of Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley. The visualiser was made in Jitter.
While dreaming of purchasing a Maximal Drone Machine or a LYRA - 8 it dawned one me that I could just make something similar in Max, so I did. All sounds are Made using MaxMSP and VahlhallaDSP plugins. Visualiser made using Jitter.
I recorded this within minutes of receiving a Leaf Audio Microphonic Soundbox in the post. I promptly set up a ProTools session, plugged the SoundBox into a bunch of guitar pedals and recorded over an hour worth of material. Here are some of my favourite bits edited from that session. The generative visualiser is made using MaxMSP and Jitter.
This is a piece of music I wrote for the play Pilgrims in 2018. A sci-fi play about two strangers quarantined on a spaceship together. The generative visualiser is made using MaxMSP and Jitter.
This is a recording I made for fun. I was experimenting with triggering MIDI samples with a live guitar signal and recording them simultaneously. All sounds other than the opening whoosh and the percussion were performed live. Generative visualiser made using MaxMSP and Jitter.
This is a song I wrote for fun and had my wife sing on it. We're both really big fans of the Cocteau Twins and it shows in this tune. Generative visualiser made using MaxMSP and Jitter.
