Perpetual Inertia: Listen
Sideband CD: Buy
I am a composer of contemporary classical music based in Sydney, Australia. I have worked as a freelance composer across a wide variety of areas including orchestral, chamber, electronic, installation and film composition and I am particularly interested in exploring notions of landscape and the physics of our natural world and universe in my work. Composition provides a way to express and understand the world around me and an outlet for the sounds conceived by my imagination.
