Playing with a new template for a TV series scoring project. Today, glitch effects πŸ™‚

I just finished submitting my entries for the
APRA AMCOS/Australian Guild of Screen Composers Screen Music Awards.

I've entered the Fanshaw & Crudnut telemovie for Best Music for Childrens Television, Best Television Theme, and (long shot) Best Music for a Mini-Series or Telemovie. Gotta be in it to win it πŸ™‚

I'm super proud of the work I did for the show, and very happy with how it turned out. Let's see if the establishment agrees with me πŸ˜›

Huge huge gratitude to Catherine Joy for helping me out with the lead sheet. I haven't had to use notation for a good while, and I'm rusty as hell. Thanks Catherine - it almost looks like proper music now... πŸ˜€

One of these days I'm going to resist the urge to fill a song with dozens of vocal harmony overdubs.

But not today...

Whew! I just realised I haven't updated this page in almost a year, but what a year... we moved to Melbourne for four months, had a baby boy, sat by his side in the NICU for 67 days. It didn't leave quite as much time for music as I'd hoped/planned.

So we've been back a while now, things are getting fairly well under control, and I thought I might dust this old page off and start using it again. I still have a new years resolution to get some new music released in 2018, and I have a few months left πŸ™‚

Just came home from the premiere of this documentary web series from three really great local filmmakers. I had the privilege and pleasure of scoring two of the three episodes, including this one.

They plan to profile several more women from around Tasmania, but they'll need eyeballs and dollars to get it done, so I'd love you to check it out, and if you feel so inclined, share as widely as you can! πŸ™‚πŸ‘

I've been cleaning out the MacBook Pro and getting it ship shape for working interstate in a couple of months, and stumbled across some OLD demos from the 90s, some of which turned into T3E songs almost a decade later. I had completely forgotten about them.

I might have to start doing the odd #tbt post πŸ™‚

Sometimes you forget you worked on something, and then several years later it gets shared on Facebook and you remember... and it's AWESOME πŸ˜†

I'm very proud to have voiced the chickens in this clip πŸ™‚

This video has no music on it, but somewhere there's a version that does 😁

I'll post it up just as soon as I can get permission to do so, but just wanted to briefly mention how much fun I had working on this short project for RedJelly and MACq 01 Hotel.

I spent a wonderful day recording the Palawa Kani language cast for this TV episode last year. It was an absolute privilege to play a small part in the show's production.

I've been working on some very exciting guest players for my upcoming release. I already have a blistering guitar solo from my erstwhile bandmate Adrian Scott, and a couple of other players pending confirmation. Very excited to put something out soon!

Haven't posted one of these for a while... New project work in progress!

I'm very proud to have contributed (in a very small way) to this series. Check it out on NITV April 28 πŸ™‚

I'm between TV/film gigs right now, so I thought I'd get back to my prog-rock roots. I did two albums worth of this type of music with The Third Ending, but this one's all mine! I'll be documenting the process as I go, so please follow for updates, and share if you think anyone else might be keen. πŸ™‚

Today's musical work in progress - channeling my inner Brian Wilson 😊

I just found this old behind the scenes video from 5 years ago (apparently heavily influenced by Official Frost* "Frost Report" videos!)

A couple of TV series gigs and a few other factors got in the way of me completing that project, but the video contains several early demo versions of songs that I'm planning to incorporate into my new album thing.

So there.

New project time! Either a shortish album or a longish EP at this stage. Song titles subject to change (and in some cases very much in need of it!)

I have some cool guest performers in mind too...

I had the pleasure of talking to Garrett Hope late last year for his podcast. Check it out below!

My take-aways: Wow, I talk fast, and apparently say "um" a lot πŸ™‚
