Compose Yourself for the BBC, September 2012

bbc found sound

Invited to facilitate a segment of a BBC programme for schools "to inspire young learners to produce their own musical compositions, no matter their skill level or musical experience". My segment focused on 'Found Sound'.

Generally quite happy with seeing myself on telly, but focus on technical matters meant descriptive words went out the window. Had to follow up with an email to producers: "sounds can be warm, cold, crunchy, squelchy, soft, buzzy, bright, hard, hollow, ringing, sharp etc."

Lauren Hayes from Hakemira and MSO also did a segment!

Radiophonic Workshop, September 2012


Commissioned by The New Radiophonic Workshop to design and develop a Kafka Interactive for Will Self’s digital essay on The Space. Did some chunking using some of the ByteArray methods in Flash (but also got it working as a demo in Web Audio API)
