COMPOSITIONS

I am a songwriter, instrumental composer, and wanderer into radio & sound art! The BBC & Arts Council England commissioned my radio piece "A Fenland Symphony" for the BBC New Creatives - broadcast on BBC 6 Music. 


My band project Kinema has its first EP available on Bandcamp. I also have a podcast called Curious Sounds.

A Fenland Symphony

 BBC Arts Radio Commission

 

The following is a variety of compositions in a mixture of genres. This work showcases some commission drafts for podcasts, web ads, documentary intros, film & TV music. 

 

"It came to me in a dream - a black & white spaniel riding a flaming cassette tape descended from the high heavens. It larked and sang unto them sweet melodies and sick beats"

 
 

Voice Overs

7DB0866F-1B8C-4EC1-B2AC-6F91564DD7B4 2.J

My voice over work ranges from commercial ads, online animations, radio and film production. Recent credits include a new BBC radio play"A Graveyard Shift"

 

Do you need voices for video game characters? My natural accent is British RP, but I can perform texts in a range of dialects. I can also mix dialogue with added effects, if you're after something a bit different!

 

I can record voice overs at my home studio, including full editing and mixing before delivery. Finished audio ready to use.

MAKING NOISE

And a little about what I do...

About me

Chris Difford from rock legends Squeeze once told me “That’s great coffee, thank you”

 

My musical career started in the church choir at 6 years old. Cold Sunday mornings and bad haircut to boot for a good 7 years.

 

My background is in audio production, having studied music technology at college, then going on to work as a recording technician at The Hub Studios in Cambridge. 

 

I have made music & sound for the stage and screen since 2013. These career highlights include working as Musical Director (Butterfly Theatre’s Tempest, Macbeth, As You Like It) and Composer and Sound Designer for independent and commercial film.

 

My work has featured on two BBC/Arts Council commissions. I am writer & director of A Fenland Symphony, an experimental project which was selected for a BBC New Creatives commission. It was included in the Cambridge International Arts Festival as an immersive audio piece, and received Honourable Mention at the UK Radio Drama Festival. I am also the composer for Princess Of Darkness, a new radio comedy commissioned under New Creatives. 

 

I'm currently based in Helsinki, working across southern Finland on audio and sound production. My commercial radio work was recently nominated for an award with Kaiku-radiomainoskilpailu (Echo Radio Ad competition). I'm also studying a Sound and Sonic Arts masters module at Helsinki University Of Arts (Taideyliopisto). I completed the first iteration of my sound sculpture piece ‘Ice!’ which went on display in Helsinki in Dec 2021.  

My home studio setup is ideal for composition, sound design and voice over work. I still make a great coffee - Chris Difford wasn't wrong!
