Composer

As well as composing, recording and performing my own work in the Demoscene (as Syphus) and in Irish traditional music circles, I've produced commissioned work for a wide range of clients including BBC Radio 3 Drama, BBC Radio 4 Drama, Sunderland A.F.C., the Centre for Process Innovation, We Are Strongness and FME, and for numerous video games.

I'm a trained violinist, guitarist and pianist, so as well as incorporating digital/analogue synthesis and sample-based sound design, my compositions and live performances also feature conventional acoustic and electric instruments.

Location Sound Recordist

I'm available for film and TV location work and can supply my own kit including: SQN mixers (4S Mini, 4S IV, 3m); Zoom recorders (Zoom F8, F4, H5, H2, H1); microphones by Sennheiser 416, Audix SCX1-HC, Oktava MK 012; a selection of Tram, OST and Sennheiser lavs; various studio mics by Neumann, Shure, Sontronics and Rode; radio wireless (2 x Sennheiser G2); and a range of options for boom work, cart work, portable voice-over recording and location Foley. I also offer audio post services.

My kit can be rented locally in various configurations - please get in touch to discuss pricing and availability.

Software/Games Developer

I have many years' experience as a web, mobile app & hybrid desktop app dev, having delivered projects for clients including the NHS, King's College London, Newcastle University, the Great North Children's Hospital & the West End Refugee Service.

Currently I'm freelancing in the games industry, where my skills include audio implementation/logic, Foley, sound design, composition, and dynamic/procedural music systems.

I also code open-source music software for fun - available free on Github!
