Message from the Artist
‘I use my immediate environment as my canvas; my source for inspiration and motivation guiding me through the endless possibilities that sound offers. My hope is that uniting different modes of composition, the electroacoustic, the soundscape and the acoustic, into one harmonious battle speaks to whoever dares to listen.’
Hello everyone. Welcome to my site, a haven of musical adventure and experimentation -the definition of the term ‘musical’ used in a loose manner. I fell in love with the idea of music being more than just a few recognizable notes put together in a specific order. Particularly the fact that the music industry is adapting to the new technologies being created everyday and giving us musicians the chance to experiment and expand on our traditional notions of music and embrace the marriage between technology and music.
My journey into creating innovative sounds from scratch and using technology to push the boundaries and expectations of that one particular sound, resulted in a passion for composing sonic art. In my art, i embrace context rather than recognisability, feeling rather than rhythm – although, depending on how much you are in tune with self, there is some rhythmic quality to feeling- resulting patterns rather than initial progressions. My goal is simple, invite you into my interpretation of “things”, sonically.
From time to time, i also put on the Sound Engineer hat to satiate my immense pleasure in ‘fixing’ and ‘enhancing’ to create products that you, the audience, will experience and undoubtedly enjoy- there goes the ‘pride in my work’ horn peering out from underneath the confines of my ‘humble’ demeanor. I work mostly on podcasts and mixing and mastering songs. It all aligns, somehow, with my journey into sound manipulation, experimentation and exploration.
Anyway, continue scrolling down for more and thanks for stopping by. #LoveANDLight.
I have been abundantly blessed in creating and producing some sonic works that have been highly praised by composers in the field. I was able to showcase some of them in conferences and concerts, accepting that this is only the beginning.
Take a listen to some of my work;
Concerts and Conferences
Sound + Environment Conference 2017 |28th Jun 2017 – 2nd July 2017
*Fully funded by the University of Kent*
I got the opportunity to attend this conference at the University of Hull. This four day conference brought together artists and scientists to explore the ways that sound deepens our understanding of the environment. My electroacoustic soundscape composition-Waridi- was presented in one of the listening rooms on the first day of the conference.
University of Kent/Greenwich Student Electroacoustic Concert |25/05/2017
This was a joint electroacoustic concert between the University of Kent and Greenwich University. I presented a multichannel composition- Sonic Shores of Sheerness- that explores the soundscape of Sheerness (by the shingle beach in the South East of England).
Noisefloor Festival 2017- Staffordshire University |2nd- 5th May 2017
*Fully funded by the University of Kent*
I attended the festival and got the chance to perform my electroacoustic soundscape composition – Waridi. I also got the opportunity to participate and attend other activities during the 4 day festival.
The Sound of Memory Symposium: Soundtrack/Sound-scape |23rd Apr 2017
I attended the symposium and got the chance to live diffuse my electroacoustic soundscape composition – Waridi- using the MAAST system (42-channels).
Fixing, tweaking, adding, removing, again and again and again is the Sound Engineers daily routine. I take pride in giving life to sound and pushing it to its greatest potential.
I work as a freelance Sound Editor. Recently, my projects have focused on podcast editing and mixing/mastering songs, the latter being very recently, lets say 2 weeks ago.
This project entails working on curriculum focused educational podcasts for GCSE and A Level students, designed to complement teaching and aid students’ learning to achieve exam success. Cool, right! Basically, i add and edit music and sound effects where appropriate, for an immersive and easier listening experience. Have a listen;
This will be updated in due time, sooner than you think.
