Oakley BikeRadar Iconic Climbs Film series - July 2014

Commissioned to compose music for 3 short films about the Tour de France's Most Iconic Climbs. Voted by the readers of BikeRadar, the films set about making  jaw dropping, muscle burning mountain climbs in the Alps. Shot on location, they define the history, mood and technical prowess of each of the climbs.

 Released on BikeRadar's "Feature Fridays", the films had to have the composition, sound design, narration and mixing complete for publishing  in a 5 week period . Working in tandem with the video editors, we worked closely on creating a different atmosphere for each film which was all done via Skype and Google. A wonderful creative process,influencing each others artistic decisions and exploring the possibilities, in different parts of the country!

A real pleasure mixing the masterful narration by Tony Haygarth.

 I took inspiration from the stunning composer Murcof and soundtracks of Moon by Clint Mansell & Solaris by Cliff Martinez. Erik Satie played a part in influencing the piano lines plus i've been hearing a lot Jesper Kyd's music recently too!

The video team consisted of the exquisite skills of Paul Stevenson (Visual Hybrid), Chris Urmston, Daniel Pearce, Thomas Lee, Alun Pughe and Jim Everleigh at Future publishing PLC.

Alpe d Huez - The first film has been nicknamed the Hollywood Climb so cue strings, brass and dramatic piano!

Ventoux - "Is the bane of cyclists and a gift to myth makers"

Galibier - "An act of adoration"

ReadBug Video Pitch for Seedrs - May 2014

Working with Visual Hybrid and Chris Urmston, we put together what's been said to be

"the best pitch Seedrs has seen in a long time"

and proceeded to get a standing ovation at the presentation at Google HQ, London.

For this project I created an up-lifiting, start-up, euphoric piece of music. I wanted to give it the feel of the old being replaced by the new. It also needed to have a feeling of excitement and to portray an atmosphere of gold dust. One of the key factors was it to be sparse enough to sit underneath spoken voice and for it to use instrumentation that wouldn't get in the way of the frequency of their voices. I was also required to create sound to punctuate and exaggerate the motion graphics. I had to get these to fit in the mix by pitching them in key with the piece of music and again for the frequencies to not clash with the voice and music.

YAS Waterworld, Abu Dhabi, UAE - April 2012 - Jan 2013  

client - Lightrhythm Visuals & Oasis Enterprises, Architainment, Al Shirawi group.

I was commissioned to compose and produce music that soundtracked 8 of the water slides that were equipped with cutting edge AV technology. Each tube has contact speakers that transmitted the audio to the rider as they descended as well as lighting and projections.

The audio had to be finely equalised to cut through the sound of water and also trimmed and syncopated with the speed the average rider would travel. Each tube has 5 theme options relating to the overall story of "Dana" and the "Lost Pearl" and all the characters that she met on the way. The music had to represent these characters and add to the already exciting journey the rider was on!

Many thanks to Helen Jenner for her amazing flute playing.

The music was scored and recorded using Logic pro and Reason 6.5 and a series of Sonokenetics sample packs.

Here are some examples of the themes and rides.

Audio Visual Academy 2011

Client - AV:academy, St Petersburg, Russia & Lightrhythm Visuals

Contributed to this online academy open to students internationally. I created content for the first 3 lessons in 'using music software as a sound source, generating sounds with synths, drum machines, samplers'. Also covering the details of basic recording, microphones and editing, while applying it to modern music, I'm afraid i'm not allowed to show an example of the lessons but follow links to see the magnitude of this extensive knowledge base. One of Fred moth's tracks is used for the intro music to their latest video here and you can see my bio on their list of contributors.

BikeRadar  - 2011

Client - Future publishing, Bath, UK.

A piece written for a Bikeradar viral video, one of a series, pitching man against machine on extreme terrains. This episode was filmed in Utah so went for a dessert, arid and driving style with the music. Have a look, if copyright in your country allows it.

  In the past i've also worked on projects for companies such as National Lottery - Sound design for a viral video Sony Ericsson - music for an internal promotional video DeLib - Sound effects for an educational online game produced for home energy awareness and a sound effects for an online 8bit ninja game that was used to promote an agency related campaign.
