2012 has been a busy year. Flown by. On the whole, rather a lot of fun, too.
- Converging Paths – a five-part, North-Yorkshire-touring, headphone show adaptation of a novel, including the composition of 6 new choral pieces, with adaptations, for 24-part choir, with Slung Low.
- Pandemic – a 3 act headphone show: part radio drama, part installation, part interactive theatre, in Singapore for the Arts Festival, along with sound design for the online site, again with Slung Low.
- A trailer for a new indie horror feature, Burning Room (for director Marco Van Belle).
- A bombastic, epic 3D CG animation adaptation of a classic sci-fi novel, for theme parks, with Red Star 3D.*
- (Then I got married 🙂 )
- 15 Minutes Live 2012 – a series of five new radio plays, performed with live actors, live foley, and a live band with me conducting (still a new and scary challenge for me…). Again, with Slung Low.
- A running game, for Team Cooper.*
- Another 3D CG animation with Red Star 3D.*
- A CG animation with Kilogramme Films, first in a series of four for internet security giant Kaspersky Lab.
- Northern Big Board, a play in a swimming pool in Shipley, with Slung Low, Chol Theatre et al as part of a larger installation, celebrating their community.
- The children’s christmas show at the Barbican, Slung Low of course, headphones and all: 59 Minutes to Save Christmas.
After which I’ll collapse. Then compose myself ready for some serious eating, drinking and general merriment over the holidays. And maybe then be in a fit state to think back on the year, learn the lessons and fully appreciate quite how epic, challenging and rewarding it’s been.
*Due to distribution/release rules I have to be a bit cagey about the work I’ve done with these companies. As soon as the information’s in the public domain, I’ll be banging on about these projects loads more…
