Afternoon,
I'm a guitarist, composer and music technology enthusiast. I like exploring new ways to create and perform music, and have a particular interest in cross-discipline arts and interactive music.

Data Soni & Circuit
Composition performed on the Novation Circuit, layered with sonification sound FX of Mark's original piece, the updated Data Streams. The building-looking parts around the still image were sonified, (I'll upload the sonified audio of this piece so you can see), and an animation of the original...

Fragile Tower:...
Partially-improvised musical response to Sam's Fragile Tower. The original still image was cut into various layers and animated as a 3D object. Some layers were then sonified. The first "non musical" noise is the tower itself at a right angle, while the outro noise is the hands which...

Shroom With A View
A light-hearted interpretation or Monique's original. Put this together whilst teaching some basic animation and rather liked the end result.

Fragile Tower Animation
I was attracted to Sam's still image, as there appears to be a clear narrative there already. I wanted to animate the image and create some kind of accompanying audio, but thought I'd show off the moving image, as is, before working on the audio.

Hi all, I was invited to the Inflated Inspirations build days to record audio, and create a musical piece out of the resulting samples. This is that piece! Audio was tinkered with in Cubase using Kontakt, Battery, Padshop and various other software. There's a video going into detail on this on my...
