I wrote and produced this song, recorded in Logic with some granular synthesis software. There are some sounds I recorded on a ca. 150 year old Harpsichord at the University of St Andrews. Vocals by James Kenneally. I also directed and edited the video.
This short sketch was made exclusively using Piezo discs sampled using my Maschine. The discs are tapped, scratched, attached to tables and kitchen pots, guitar strings and my mouth.

Some ideas I put on Soundcloud.
A sound experiment I created for On The Rocks Festivals in St Andrews, largest student arts festival in Scotland. In April I organized a group of musicians to write an original score for a movie that was performed live while the movie was projected onto a wall in a dark room. The audience was able to watch the movie without seeing the musicians (a controversial decision as I later found out), being completely enveloped by the resulting recombination of visual and sonic stimuli. A black room and vigorous sound-checking increased the effect.
The idea was inspired by my love for film scoring. Original film scores were live performances by - usually - organ players in the screening room. In the modern age, the connection between the music as performance and the visual addition has been lost. I wanted to bring the music to life right there in the cinema. I organized a group of 5 musicians (including myself) to come together in my bedroom and write a score together. I organized an event with my friend Benoit that showcased our work to an audience of over 50 people while we performed.

I wrote/produced the music for this fashion video. It’s for a brand called My Way. The music is supposed to be edgy and raw, showing the energy and uniqueness of the fashion. Given the location, I decided to use some industrial sounding electronic sounds but still give it that deep electronic sound. The song was made with Reason and a Korg R3.
