STAND EASY PRODUCTIONS
This May I am working as the musical director for Stand Easy Productions. Stand Easy uses theatre and theatre skills as a means of assisting the process of recovery for wounded, injured and sick military personnel. This will be a demanding role for me but one which I am really looking forward to. After three weeks of rehearsal the company will tour for one week with the production that’s created in that three week period.
I’m really pleased to have been asked to design an ambisonic installation for a cross-art collaborative installation developed by five artists. The installation is called Timefield and it weaves together stories of memory and forgetting, of nature and ageing and draws attention to the fragility of humanity as an integral part of nature. It is an exploration of the passage of time and its effect on the landscape of our bodies and our planet.
This is a cross-art collaborative installation developed by five artists and includes: projections of long exposure photographs showing the impact of time on the body, large scale painted wall-hangings that communicate the force of nature, and a soundscape that integrates spoken word and sound drawn from the natural world.
Timefield runs as part of The Luminate Festival from Sat 27th April – Sat 25th May 10:00 – entry is free17:00

I have just finished writing the score and completed the sound design for a short horror film written by Glasgow writer, Chris Kelso in Collaboration with American award winning actress and writer, Laura Lee Bahr. The working title is Strange Bird and it was filmed in Los Angeles at the end of 2018. I mixed the soundtrack at home in my studio and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Strange Bird is due to be released in late 2019.
