I sometimes write plain music like this...
...but usually I work with bits of chopped up speech and other found sound.
Poetic speech with music. This was a collaboration with Ross Carter & James Yarker
The second rehearsal of a short choral piece commissioned by Oxford Playhouse.
From EP1 of Third Squad. Well recorded source material gave me the chance to create very detailed scenes and transitions.

Soundtrack composition and installation for MASS MoCA and Theater der Welt.
