Hello, and welcome to my new website! First of all, thank you for visiting! I am really excited to share my music with you.
I will use this blog to share my latest tracks with you all - and give you a behind the scenes insight into my music as I publish it. I will also use it to talk about any projects I am currently working on. If you'd like to be notified when I post, please feel free to sign up to my newsletter!
Firstly, I'd like to thank Zoe Hutber for designing my beautiful branding! She did a really great job, and I'm delighted with my logo. I have always loved Art Nouveau artwork, so when I met with Zoe to discuss my designs I knew I wanted there to be an Art Nouveau vibe to it. It was great to work with Zoe, and I loved watching my ideas and imaginings come to life. PS: I wish my hair looked that good in real life!
Project-wise, I currently have a few projects that I am working on. One of those is a short documentary by Annika Meos, called Hurts So Good, which is currently in post-production. It follows ultra-runner Fionna Ross as she prepares for a 100K run. This documentary really spoke to me on a personal level, because my Mum is also an ultra-runner. I know how gruelling - mentally and physically - ultra running can be. Annika and I are working closely together to create a soundtrack that compliments the footage and highlights the highs and lows of long-distance running. This should be finished within the next month or so, and I look forward to sharing the music with you once it is finished.
And finally, last month I was lucky enough to get to work on my very first theatre project - a production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The whole experience was enlightening, and really helped build my confidence in my abilities. I had a very tight turnaround time of just three weeks to produce a soundtrack, and I am happy to say I met the deadline! My aim for this project was to create a cohesive soundtrack that could create a musical identity for the characters and settings within the play, but it also had to sound magical and mischievous - I mean, fairies! I was in my element writing the music for this project, and I combined elements of folk and baroque music with modern/futuristic synth sounds to create a hybrid soundtrack that could successfully underscore the centuries old play, whilst acknowledging its modern-day interpretation.
As a thank you for visiting my website and taking the time to read my very first blog post, I have made my opening track for A Midsummer Night's Dream free to download! You can find it as a bonus track on my A Midsummer Night's Dream album, over in the music tab of my website. Thanks for reading, and happy listening!
