I love my work! I studied at the Royal College of Music (violin and composition) and have always enjoyed variety in my music career. String arranging, recording and orchestration have ended up as my specialities, but via bands and radio commercials and music theatre (musical director for The Rocky Horror Show ’96 – ’99) and teaching.
I have a special interest in web tools for musicians – as learners, teachers and professionals. My wikispace documents my interests and research. Elearning for Musicians. I do some occasional guest lectures.
I live in Manchester UK with my wife and son.
In 2010 I did a new build for my studio, improving the acoustic recording space.
I use SE and Neumann mics, into a Metric Halo ULN2, recording in Logic on a Mac. Acoustic treatment by Vicoustic, supplied by System Workshop.
In 2011 I started a virtual intern / assistant project. Currently this is Julian Cole.
