Hello! Things have been quiet from a news perspective, but there’s lots going on in the background.

My project with Steven Lambert is coming along nicely and I should have more to talk on that very soon, and in the mean time you can always head over to my Soundcloud page which contains a lot more examples of my work, and some of the stuff that I’ve just made for fun or practice lately.

In my capacity as one half of Surprised Man we showed off Fix Fix Bang Bang this weekend at the Bonus Stage event at the Loading Bar, Dalston. We hope to have a version of that people can play very very soon now.

I’ve decided to rotate out a few examples from my examples page, just because there are a few pieces of work I wanted to showcase there and a couple that I decided it was time to retire. I expect this to continue as I am able to share more of the work I’ve done lately.

I’ve also been pitching, or am in the early stages of a couple of other project, and I expect that to ramp up again very soon as my schedule starts to become clearer.

As always, feel free to get in touch with me about upcoming projects that you have, it’s never too early to reach out and start talking ideas. I recently attended a talk at EGX Rezzed from the wonderful Rex Crowle working on Knights and Bikes who talked a lot about how inspiration for your game doesn’t have to be visual-only but can come from audio places too - and in my opinion there’s no better way to get access to that perspective than by involving a composer early.

I hope to write up my thoughts on this and a few other topics on my blog soon.

It’s been a little while, but I haven’t been doing nothing!

The retro soundtrack for Super Skull Smash Go! 2 Turbo was released on just about every platform out there, and the game itself can be played on PC, PS4 and Vita. The music can be found on my bandcamp page as usual

As well a couple of one-off tracks for some projects that are under NDA or not quite ready to be talked about, I’m also involved in another project with the lovely TACS Games that I hope to be able to share more of soon, and the audio for a game with Steven Lambert which is shaping up nicely.

I’m looking for project for the new year, so if you have something on the horizon, now would be an excellent time to get in touch!

My second project with TACS Games, I was tasked with replacing the soundtrack for Octocopter's Wii U release for a brand new and upgraded release on Nintendo Switch. 

The game is out now and the soundtrack can be found on my usual Bandcamp page. Enjoy!

I was kindly invited onto the Sound of Play podcast to talk about my music and my influences and show off some examples of both. Listen to it on the Cane and Rinse website, here!

In the last month lots has happened!

The biggest thing is that I have made a move to composing on a part time basis, allowing me to devote a significantly larger chunk of time on projects.

That means that I've made a few changes to this website, and also my Soundcloud page. The latter is going to be the place if you're interested in listening to the latest things I've been working on that I'd like to and am allowed to share.

But this is the place to come for info about what I do and examples that I think show off a range of my work.

Apart from that, there are lots of interesting projects going on. 

First, there's ACORN Tactics, a turn based strategy game from TACS Games coming soon to Nintendo Switch.
Also from TACS is Super Skill Smash Go! 2 Turbo, giving me a chance to do another NES style chiptune soundtrack with a slightly different feel to Fix Fix Bang Bang. 
Speaking of that game, we've turned a corner on it and I think we'll have more to share very soon now. I've lost count of the number of times I've said that, but it really does feel close now. In the mean time, the soundtrack EP is still available on Bandcamp.
Finally, I'm working on a much longer term RPG soundtrack project. It's too early to be able to share much of the detail, but I think it's a very exciting concept and I think people are really going to love it.

With some of those projects coming to a close very soon, I'll be actively seeking more things to work on in no time.
