COMPOSER / SOUND DESIGNER
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I am a Composer, Orchestrator and Sound Designer with a Masters Degree in Composition for Screen from the Royal College of Music. I have previously worked on a variety of projects, including movie trailers, adverts, games, animations and feature films.
I have a great deal of experience taking a project right through from square one, through every stage of production to deliver the finished project. I am a total production nut and a real perfectionist. Whether the budget dictates high quality sampled instruments or a large scale live ensemble I can deliver a high quality product.
Further to my ongoing composition work, I am proud to be the MA Course Manager at the longest running distance learning composition school ThinkSpace Education, helping students to achieve their musical goals all over the world.

I recently had the pleasure of working with author Virginia Burges and violinist Adelia Myslov on this piece to accompany the book The Virtuoso, available on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon Prime Music.
THE URSA MINOR PROJECT
TOOLS FOR COMPOSERS
This simple distored guitar sample library is designed for speed with the modern composer in mind. The heavily distorted, yet smooth tone is my usual go to set up for recording guitar with hybrid music. It sits well under most things, including orchestra, but can also be pretty punchy when it needs to be.
You get thirteen power chords premixed to my standard set-up played by four guitars, two left and two right. Play below velocity 64 and you will hear only guitars. Play above velocity 65 and you will get bass as well. Further up the keyboard you get the left and right guitars separated out. You can control the attack and release of each chord, as well as dial in a bit of reverb for those really epic moments. After all, even guitarists get fed up with having to plug their guitar in for a single power chord!
I have also included a reversal patch which can create some interesting risers.
XCHORD 2 is coming soon and will include mutes and octave chords.
