I'm an Anglo-French musician, composer, songwriter, producer, sound-designer and sound artist from London.
I work in Contemporary Dance, Theatre, Performance Art, Installation Art, Film, TV and Commercials and I'm recognised for my versatility and talent for collaboration.
I have worked with major artists including Rufus Wainwright, Lou Reed, Coco Rosie, Daniel Hope; directors Robert Wilson, Victoria Chaplin, Charles Chemin and choreographers Lucinda Childs, Marianna Kavallieratos and Jayne Port.. and many exciting up-and-coming artists.
My main passions are innovation and collaboration, whether I’m working in a 4000 year old amphitheatre, or a community theatre project in Hackney, (I did both last year.)
My work is stylistically diverse, ranging from contemporary classical to punk, and I'm currently creating cutting-edge concert works for electric guitars, the first of which, ‘Vengeful Ghost’ will premiere at Snape Maltings' Festival of New in September 2020.
I've produced and licensed music for clients including CBS, BBC, C4, ITV, hr2, SWR, RBB, Channel 5, KLM, INWI, Chow Tai Fook and fashion designers Hussein Chalayan, Issey Miyake, Conchita Perez and SHOWStudio.
I was lucky enough to learn my production skills in the studio, with some of the most talented and best known producers in the world, Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters), Andy Gill (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), John Smith (Blur), Alex Silva (Manic Street Preachers) and Jagz Kooner (Primal Scream).
I was signed to Warners UK and BMG in the early 2000’s, and toured the world with two of the UK’s most thrilling live acts: Sona Fariq and Queen Adreena, both championed by Eddy Temple Morris and Zane Lowe, touring with Marilyn Manson, Public Enemy, Sonic Youth, NIN. I've just released my Indie-folk duo, Emperors of Rome's, debut.
