My studio is in Newcastle upon Tyne (North of England).
I work with live piano and 'cello and my collection of percussion instruments alongside a host of synths, sample libraries and production tools which allow me to easily access and work with a wide pallette of natural and electronic sounds, often bringing them together. In terms of bringing in analogue processing for a textured, rich, less clean sound I also make use of my reel to reel and 90s sampler.
Wherever budget and schedule allows live instrumentalists
(in addition to me!) can be recorded as part of the service right up to full orchestra in which case the music would start here in my studio before being recorded at a larger studio/ venue and then either coming back to me or going to mixing and
