It's been a while I know, but I'm back with a blog post to give you news of exciting things which will soon be appearing on new pages across this website. I will soon be posting new entries to my film music and film production portfolios as I have been busy over the last few months putting the finishing touches to a couple of big projects as well as acquiring a few more which I'm about to get stuck in to.
As you can probably deduce for yourself, this is the first blog post I've written here this year and I wholeheartedly apologize if you've been waiting with baited breath. There have been a few projects which have been monopolizing my time this year but I offer no excuses for the lack of activity on this site. Shame on me!
The projects I have been beavering away on this year have included remixing some old pieces of music to picture which I produced during the first year of my MA and the last year of my bachelors degree at Leeds Met. I'll be uploading these periodically over the summer and autumn so keep checking back here or keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter.
Alongside this remix work, I've been revamping my home studio, gaining new inspiration from different avenues, and generally enjoying life. But the biggest, most challenging, most time-consuming element of my existence this year has been my involvement in the regeneration of my workplace: the Imperial War Museum. We have been working behind closed doors to overhaul many of the visitor spaces and build a new First World War gallery to celebrate the centenary of the conflict.
My work on this project has taken a few different forms but has mostly involved contributing to the AV equipment specification and fit out, as well as producing video content to be displayed in the new spaces. This has been a mammoth job and on the 19th of July the public will get their first opportunity to see the fruits of our labour. For those of you interested to see some of the new content but can't make it to the museum, keep an eye on the social media wires and this blog as I'll be uploading examples of my film production work for the IWM to new pages in the Film portfolio section of this site.
The last titbit I have for you is that I have started work on my first original piece of film music since I left City University last summer. It's shaping up to be a great little project involving some immensely talented individuals...and me of course!
That's it for now but I'll be back with another update soon. In the meantime I'll leave you with this exclusive image from the new atrium space at the IWM. Exciting times!
