I’m thrilled to announce I landed some music/sound design in this trailer for Alien: Covenant. I’ve always loved the movies, & remember secretly recording Aliens on VHS aged 8, then scaring the shit out of myself & my buddies. It’s an honour to be even a small part of this series. Thanks to Pusher for the hook-up!
I played cello on Nocturne Wave’s track “One Fire One Fate” as used in the trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Excited to play even a tiny part of this awesome franchise.
Thanks to Pusher & Rinse The Sync for making it happen!
I really enjoyed visiting a scrapyard to record some big industrial smash sounds. Heavy drums? How about 1.5 Tonnes smashing down on cars & industrial bins? Quite weighty.
Hear the results on my Soundcloud Page on the tracks:
Thanks to Will & Smash for letting it happen 🙂
A newly acquired Pixiano. It looks pretty old, & needs some love to restore it. Real hammer keys hit on metal tangs. It sounds discordant & delicious.
I’m going to try a few different things with it, opening it up to access the twanging tangs with different mallets, an Ebow & my home made electromagnetic resonator.
Alternative Blueprint Records – music for specialists
I’m very pleased to announce I recently made some custom music for this Sprite advert.
This was a cut-to-picture edit of my tune “Step It Down” for Sprite, the full version of which will be released next year.
The full mix has a lovely warm wobbly analogue bassline from the classic synth Roland JX-3p.
I’ve got a new mini-release out, the first for a while. I’d love it if you had a listen.
Featuring an incredible female vocalist & wonky electronica. There are a bunch of different remixes of the track One Sweet Day:
You can also hear it on the new BBC Drama series “The Driver” – a gritty crime thriller written by Danny Brocklehurst, & airing tonight (23/09/2014) on BBC 1.
