Point to Point Binaural Audio Walk

Very excited to have launched Point to Point, a collaboration between Louie Ingham, Lee Mattinson and myself and commissioned by Lakes Culture for the Lakes Ignite festival.

It’s a free, site specific contemporary audio experience based around Wainwright’s Walla Crag that’s available until the end of May.

Happy New Year

Lots of exciting projects in the pipeline for 2015.

Further announcements coming soon.

In the meantime, some of my composition and sound design work is currently on display at the Make / Believe: UK Design for Performance Exhibition from The Society of British Theatre Designers.

You can also see Jamie Harrison displaying some of his incredible puppet designs from Dragon, an award winning show we worked together on in Glasgow and China.

 

God Bless the Child Opens

I have just completed work on the music and sound for God Bless the Child at the Royal Court theatre.

It has been a fantastic month of rehearsals with an incredible cast and wonderful team at the Royal Court. Great to hear the audience debating issues about schools, children and the powers that be after each peformance.

It runs until December 20th.

Here are some excerpts from the score:

God Bless the Child

I am currently composing the music and sound for God Bless the Child, written by Molly Davies and directed by Vicky Featherstone at the Royal Court Theatre. It’s an incredibly powerful play that questions what schools should be and how children should be. I can’t wait for audiences to see it. It opens on November 19th

I feel very proud to be involved with the Royal Court’s new season. I’d wholly recommend seeing the Teh Internet is Serious Business and Wolf from the Door – contemporary writers looking at the strange times we are living in and reflecting back powerful ideas and stories.

Tomorrow in Glasgow

After performances at the Brighton Festival and Cena Contemporanea Festival in Brazil earlier this year it’s wonderful to see Tomorrow open in Glasgow – the home of Vanishing Point. I feel very proud to have worked on the show and the responses from audiences and the press have been fantastic.

And see the response on Twitter here.

Catch the final performances at the Tramway this week.

Tomorrow in Brazil

I have just returned from a great few weeks of re-rehearsing Tomorrow with Vanishing Point theatre for performances in Brasilia and Sao Paulo.

The show played as part of the Cena Contemporanea international festival in Brasilia and then further performances at the SESC in Sao Paulo.

Cena Contemporanea

It was great team to be a part of and incredible to see the impact of the show on Brazilian audiences.

The show returns to the UK for performances at the Tramway in Glasgow in October.

 

Dragon in China

I have just returned from an incredible month in China with Vox Motus and the National Theatre of Scotland helping to re-make Dragon at the Tianjin People’s Art Theatre.IMG_1236

It was a great experience working with a wonderful Chinese crew and brilliant to see the audience’s response to the show. The show now tours round China through 2014.

Tomorrow at the Brighton Festival

I had a wonderful time at the Brighton Festival premiering Tomorrow by Vanishing Point. It was wonderful to see it get such a emotional response from the audience and some really great reviews.

Very much looking forward to the stage of development in Glasgow and then onto the Cena Contemporânea in Brazil, before a run at The Tramway in the autumn.
