Welcome to my media page, which contains short mp3 demo compilations of various genres of music that I have written, suitable for the concert hall, jazz club, film, TV or adverts....
I write in a wide variety of styles, influenced by my many and varied performing experiences, and can prepare tracks at my home studio to professional standard, using live instruments, vocals (I work with several excellent singers - male and female), midi tracks and samples, with parts provided if required in sibelius format. (All instruments in the sample selection below are performed, recorded and programmed by me in my studio in Manchester, UK).
I can also record sax solos from my studio to tracks sent electronically.
I also arrange for any combination of instruments, from small combo to full orchestra.
Many of my works (compositions and arrangements) have appeared on the concert stage, in jazz clubs and venues, and on TV advertisements.
