about

What happens when you look for heart and humanity from within the clutches of technology?

In essence a snapshot of my studio would tell you all you need to know about my journey. Boxes, machines, synths, compressors, faders and switches. I have surrounded myself with these things and endeavoured to learn all of their workings over a long period of time. I have learnt a lot. But when the learning was over, it was time to create something human; and I then almost had to re-teach myself how to feel and make music about feeling. So I reintroduced my piano and I reintroduced harmony and melody and tried to create emotion from within the deep recesses of the machines at my disposal.

Using raw emotional inspiration such as Renee Jeanne Falconetti’s agonising facial expressions from the 1928 film ‘The Passion of Joan of Arc’, a mild obsession with walled gardens far and wide in an effort to understand what happens to the mind in these fabricated but solitary places and a general internal battle with the daily pressures and addictions of technology, I feel I have finally carved out something that has taken a step back in the direction of human feeling but is both of the heart and of the machine.
