Bastille’s Doom Days - Still Avoiding Tomorrow

I created the sound design for the launch of Bastille’s album, Doom Days. Working with writer Charlotte Bogard Macleod, and my team of Mike Winship, Ella Wahlstrom and Helen Skiera, we developed and designed three stories, told simultaneously using binaural sound over wireless headphones. The stories and sound design interwove themes and lyrics from the album with a binaural soundscape and Bastille’s music. After the 40 minute performance, the audience moved next door where Bastille performed the full album live.

I’ve designed the sound for this short film directed by long-term collaborator Susan Lynch, starring The Charlatan’s singer Tim Burgess. With beautifully recorded sound from Richard Miller, Foley from the Foley Factory, and mixing from Conor Kelly at Goldcrest. IMDB

V&A Unframed

I worked with film-maker Emily Harris, having previously working on her film for the V&A exhibition Glastonbury: Land and Legend, to create this film for the V&A’s exhibition at the 2019 Prague Quadrennial. We created a 5.1 mix for the film, plus placed specific sounds and interviews in speakers concealed in a model box created by Tortoise in a Nutshell’s designer, Amelia Bird.

Rekorder-land Magic Leap experience

I created the sound design (with associate Mike Winship) for this mixed reality experience at the Underbelly on London’s South Bank this summer. It uses a mix of strategically placed speakers and spatialised audio within Magic Leap headsets to transport visitors to a magical forest….


Moments of Silence - Imperial War Museum

I worked with 59 Production’s Richard Slaney to create this exhibition for the IWM. In the first space I created a soundtrack entirely out of the sound of sand, to accompany a projected abstract piece animated using sand particles. The second space, which was completely dark and treated to be acoustically dead, featured am ambisonic soundscape of a number of two-minute silences, that myself, my team and others recorded of a variety of memorial silences held across the world, from St. Pauls to a submarine, from Derby Football Club to the Everest Base Camp.

Anna Meredith: Five Telegrams: Sender / Receiver: First Night of the Proms and EIF Opening

I worked with 59 Production’s Richard Slaney and Anna Meredith on her piece Five Telegrams. The night before the First Night of the Prom, we previewed her composition, with projection mapped visuals on the exterior of the Royal Albert Hall.

Then using recordings of that performance, and from Anna’s actual First Night of the Prom (which had visuals mapped on the inside of the Royal Albert Hall), we edited and mixed a version to play for the opening of the Edinburgh International Festival.


Omay - BBC Radio 3 documentary

Working with producer David Waters, we created this documentary about anthropologist Laura Rival, who spent many years living in the Amazon in a Huaorani community. It intersperse’s David’s interviews with her, with her own recordings made there, and binaural recordings I made in the Amazon Rainforest.

Working with artists Sabrina Mahfouz, Rachel Mars and Paula Varjack, and Fuel, I created three ten-minute pieces responding to the theme of incarcerated women. These were exhibited at the Tate Modern museum, then at the Latitude Festival, with future exhibitions in the planning.

Tunnel Visions: Array

I worked with 59 Production’s Richard Slaney, on the recording, editing, mixing, system design and diffusion of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Karawane for Orchestra and Chorus. Starting off as a recording of the BBC Symphony Orchestra I created a sound design using 40 speakers and 20 sub-bass speakers spaced out down the Beech Street tunnel in central London (the dingy tunnel that leads to the Barbican).


Expedia 3D audio campaign

I worked with Create Future, Expedia and Brand USA to plan their Sound Travels campaign, highlighting aspects of a variety of American cities and locations to encourage people to visit. It eventually involved location recording in binaural sound across the USA by Clatter&Din
