What I'm working on at the moment
I was working on "The Effect" (The Boulevard Theatre), "In The Blood" (Donmar) and "The Long Song" (Chichester) which have all been cancelled during the Covid-19 outbreak. One or all may be restaged. Prior to that, recent shows include "A Christmas Carol" at Bristol Old Vic, which has run for the past 2 Christmas seasons; "The Lovely Bones" at Royal and Derngate and two UK tours; "Out of Water" at The Orange Tree; Graeae's "This Is Not For You" at GDIF and SIRF. I previously took "Split Mixed" to festivals in France and Hong Kong, and more recently it was performed at Manchester Royal Exchange. Other shows include "Instructions For Correct Assembly" and "Bodies" (Royal Court), Betrayal, Echo's End and The Magna Carta Plays, (all featuring my original music), at Salisbury Playhouse.
Over the previous few years I have spent a lot of time as part of the design/operating team for The Encounter, Complicite (lead designers Gareth Fry & Pete Malkin), I operated microphones and live looping on Ableton for this headphone-based binaural audio adventure, which toured UK and Europe, and Broadway.
I am a sound designer, musician, and composer.
I like to create active sound environments throughout the process of making a show; whether it is running loops on Ableton, or getting casts to sing harmonies; and to collaborate as much as possible.
I also like to operate shows that have a special live component, like looping, or other elements that make operating the show a more dynamic, music-like experience
I also really enjoy running workshops in sound, and regularly lead these at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
