Film/Visual Works

How to Undress in Front of Your Husband (2016)


This work for video, pre-recorded audio and live music was made using found footage from the 1940s and 50s and is scored for 14 musicians. The piece was premiered by Red Note Ensemble and Music Lab at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's Plug Festival in May 2016. The video shown below is from the first performance and is preceded by a short introduction which gives further information about the work.

Cloud Hands (2016)


'Cloud Hands' is a solo cello piece written for Jennifer Langridge as part of Psappha Ensemble's Composing for Cello scheme in 2015/16.

Between The Lines (2014)


'Between the Lines' is a collaborative music+spoken word+video piece by myself and composer Thomas Butler. A mutual interest in mixed-media work led us to devise a fictional story (narrated by me), accompanied by a series of still images presented as a video. The music combines sound-recordings of the scenes depicted in the stills and cello music performed by Laura Sergeant.

Perception of Layers/Layers of Perception (2011)


This is an excerpt from a film installation which explores themes of image, identity and gender. As an installation, two separate videos are shown simultaneously on facing screens, playing on a continuous loop. The piece was an initial exploratory attempt to work with autobiographical material outwith a musical framework.
