I am delighted to announce that I have been awarded a Developing Your Creative Practice grant from Arts Council England. I will be using this grant during 2021/22 to develop my media composition skills.

Much of my work to date has focused on a sound based practice, composing music and soundscapes from found sounds, creating soundwalks from field recordings and designing sound for theatre. In recent years, commissions for theatre, dance and film have demanded more conventional instrumental music composition in a variety of styles.  I will be undertaking research and training in instrumental music composition, developing skills composing with sample libraries, composing for film and visual media, producing a body of new work and building a media composition showreel.

I am very grateful to Arts Council England for this award.
