Most of my professional life has been devoted to music. In the early days I worked as Musical Director and actor in the Hull Truck Theatre Company, followed by many years as a successful film composer for BBC and Channel Four documentaries. I spent a particularly memorable summer composing in the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and in 2012 co-curated an electronic music exhibition at the London Science Museum.
I then researched and wrote several books about the Avebury landscape, where I lived for 10 years. This, in turn, resurrected a love of photography and led me to visit many beautiful landscapes and ancient sites in Britain and abroad.
My articles and photographs have appeared in Sound On Sound, Performing Musician, British Archaeology, Wiltshire Life, Fortean Times, various publications by National Trust and English Heritage, and exhibits in the Alexander Keiller Museum in Avebury.
Since moving to Somerset I have returned to my musical roots and am currently creating immersive 3-D sound art, while also completing my written account of the history of psychedelic pop band Raspberry Parade having spent several years interviewing former band members and restoring their rare recordings.
In the past few years I have given many talks, both to local groups and large conferences, about Avebury, Bilocation and Archaeoacoustics (sound archaeology). The talks are accompanied by striking visual presentations, some with specially created soundscapes; all have proven extremely popular.
Upcoming talks, projects and music releases will be announced on my News page and social media.
