Take the whole family to save Christmas at Z-Arts in Manchester! Made by Slung Low, the show runs until Christmas Eve, and tickets are going fast. Shows are at 11am, 2pm, 4pm and 7pm most days from this Saturday (20th Dec) onwards.


The full album is available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and all other good online mp3 outlets.

From the Z-Arts site:

Things are very, very wrong – Christmas trees are behaving strangely, there are rumours of grumpy fairies and elves throwing baubles at shoppers! Someone is out to spoil the fun, the clock is ticking and no one can stop it but you – you have 59 Minutes to Save Christmas!

An interactive headphone journey around Z-arts for intrepid adventurers and brave parents (who might be useful to reach the high stuff).

***SPOILERS!*** Some of the themes from the show are here:

Holey Moley! plays on CITV

5 December 2014

I worked on this brilliant short animation for Kilogramme Animation back in October. It played on CITV throughout November. So much fun! And, *spoiler warning* the mole gets the upper hand at the end so of course I loved it.

From the ComposerWorks site:

The BAFTA-winning series, run annually by CITV in which children aged 5-12 are asked to write a one-page story and also draw an accompanying storyboard…

Entries are judged by professional animators and children who have won the competition in the past. Winning stories are turned into short animations which are then broadcast on CITV in October. The competition launched in 2010, and has been nominated for four Children’s BAFTA Awards, winning twice (in 2012 and 2013).

The Aviatrix: Capetown to Goodwood

2 November 2014 Film

It’s November, and I’m just wrapping up the mix on a Christmas Ad (more on that when it broadcasts…). Where did the year go?!

Earlier in the year I worked on ‘The Aviatrix’ (at the time, its working title was ‘Capetown to Goodwood’), a feature-length documentary about Tracey Curtis-Taylor’s recreation of Lady Heath’s first female-piloted biplane flight from South … Read the rest

The White Whale is Up and Running

5 September 2014 Theatre
The White Whale is up and running. It's sold out and the waiting list has been closed. Some people are resorting to turning up on the night just in case there are audience member no-shows (I'm not suggesting this as a course of action, but I understand that needs must etc.)

What I’ve Learned (so far) from Scoring ‘The White Whale': Part 3

Give the subconscious as much time as possible to do the idea-generating heavy lifting. Some time is good. More is better.

Women, Money, Success and The Bechdel Test

21 April 2014 Miscellaneous

The year is flying by. April is speeding to a close as I finish up the bulk of the music on a very cool project for the V&A Museum down in London. More about this challenging experience in later posts nearer the time the exhibition will open…

I’m starting work on a new feature film in May. Again, more about … Read the rest

Meandering Thoughts on the Ego

27 February 2014 Miscellaneous

Time is flying by, and we’re already nearing March of a year that feels like it only began a week ago. I’ve been working on Red Star’s latest animation this month, in a very different music style to my normal orchestral/sound-designy schtick! ‘Tis alway nice to have a challenge.

Next month brings with it more new and lovely challenges: preparatory … Read the rest
