New Track – Systems Technology

This track is a re-recording of a track I performed at The Ashmolean. It uses the aps Thumbjam (which is where the Cello sound comes from and SynthX (well a vague synth undertone comes from). Both apps were linked played together (without having to set-up any odd MIDI settings – which is good as I do not really know how to do MIDI settings!

Live at The Ashmolean

After creating music on and  off for the last ten years I had a chance to play live for the first time ever (which was immense fun though quite exhausting). I was one of the musicians that played at a Live Friday event at The Ashmolean Museum as part of the 150 year celebrations for Oxford Brookes University. I played a set of about 90 minutes using various apps. As a visual stimulus (and to so people were not just watching me play I had numerous videos running which I played along to).

Some live tracks can be found below (the quality is not as good as what was played on the night!).

As my artist name suggest I mostly compose tunes that have an ambient edge. My main passion is creating soundscapes, be they soft drifting drones or more abstract and dark pieces. I mainly compose using apps on my IPad but also make use of whatever instruments I have lying around (my favourite is an Early Learning Centre keyboard.)

In the past my tracks have been played in BBC Radio Oxford and BBC 6 Music. Over the years I have collaborated with people from all over the world and love continuing to do so.
