SOUNDTRACKS

Below is a Soundcloud link to short excerpts of my work as examples of potential pieces for film and TV scores. Full length versions of many of these pieces are in the Music and Video sections of this site as well as my YouTube channel.

 

Two tracks from the album Composure (Form of the Dream and Composure) were included in the Ambient Music Guide.com 40th Anniversary tribute to Brian Eno's Music For Airports entitled New Music For Airports in 2018.

 

Also included here is the work I've done with Kingsley Melhuish as the duo Alargo. Many of these pieces are also highly suited to movie soundtracks.
