"My love for music began when I was around 4 years old. I remember watching my father play the piano for hours on end. He would sit me down, play me a song and then teach me how the chords, melodies and rhythms came together. I would learn everything by ear focusing purely on what felt right, which harmonies worked best and what feelings these created. These early experiences gave me an ear and passion for all things 'music', I was compelled by how music and sound affects the way in which we communicate with both ourselves and others.
After years of nurture I went on to graduate from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and then fell straight into the world of media, composing music and sound to picture. This opportunity to experiment with sound in both a conventional and unconventional way allowed me to develop my skills as a classical composer as well as a sonic architect. For me it was important to not just play the correct notes on an instrument but to also portray an emotion using textures, reverbs and electronics to articulate these feelings.
Through my relationship with music I aim to communicate the ethos that music and sound does not have to be based on rules but instead passion, innovation and creative influence, just as I was taught all those years ago."
