Selected Work

24 Splashes of Denial

The first in a series of climate meditations in partnership with the collective, Writers Rebel. Incorporating spoken word with Neo-classical ambience, this 18 minute piece features the voice and words of acclaimed poet, Ruth Padel.

Listen to Ruth and myself discussing the piece on BBC Radio 3’s poetry and literature strand, The Verb.

Read a Q+A with the writer Toby Litt on the Writers Rebel website.

Read a feature I wrote for Classical Music Magazine about the symbiosis between writing music for work and the desire for self-expression.

Praise for 24 Splashes of Denial

Eerie and beautiful – Tessa Hadley, Author

Astonishingly Beautiful – Andrew O’Hagan, Author & Critic

An ethereal, elegiac response to the climate crisis via a beautifully fluid blending of music and poetry – Stephen Merchant, Writer & Director

Listen Without Listening

Long player featuring binaural field recordings of nature combined with ambient compositions.

“All the chills, the static and the shoreline, the wonder and the weather. Stick your earphones in and go lie in the park and take it in. Brilliant.” – Andrew O’Hagan, author and critic.

Fighting with My Family

Composer for feature film starring Florence Pugh, written and directed by Stephen Merchant, produced by Dwayne ‘The Rock” Johnson. Debuted at #1 at the U.K box office.

Fighting With My Family is a hugely likable underdog tale, packing plenty of crowd-pleasing comedy wallop, and boasting a smack-down turn from the indomitable Florence Pugh.” – Mark Kermode, The Observer

An Idiot Abroad

Series composer for 3 seasons of travelogue comedy starring Karl Pilkington, Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais.

With the additional benefit of some deft editing and a cheeky, Curb Your Enthusiasm-esque score, Pilkington can seem like the British equivalent of a Coen Brothers character, a rube dragged outside his comfort zone, to great comic effect.” – AV Club
