Academic

I completed a Music Informatics Degree (2.1) from The University of Sussex in 2012.

Music Informatics was comprised of both music and computer science modules.

Although it was a while ago now, here are some examples of the work I produced:

Dissertation: Sound Surroundings

An environmentally generated sound installation.

DSP Project

DSP coded in SuperCollider using wavetable synthesis.

Generative Creativity Project

Algorithmic composition based on randomness and first order Markov matrices.

Studio Composition

The piece portrays the struggle of the Afro-Argentinian slaves in the 1800s and is based around a classical guitar piece called Milonga. Drums are programmed using Cubase and I am playing in and recording/mixing the rest of the instruments.

Electroacoustic Music Composition

I recorded myself playing classical guitar through a Max/MSP patch that I built. I then turned the output into a composition using ProTools.
