Awards, Competitions & Scholarships

I was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship from the London College of Music in conjunction with the Faculty of Arts, at the University of West London (UWL) to undertake Cross-Disciplinary Practice PhD.  This practice led PhD is the first of its kind in the Faculty, and as such I have great freedom where I am lucky enough to be able to define my own methods and methodologies.  You can read more about my PhD on this page PhD Research

After completing my BA (hons) Degree in Music Technology where I obtained a First I was awarded a fees scholarship to undertake an MA.  The MA I chose was MA Audio Technology where I concentrated on interactive technologies, Max/MSP and held a three day solo exhibition/installation in December 2009 at the Acquire Art Gallery in Central London The Laundry Room Exhibition/Installation. The exhibition was a great success.  More details and photographs of the exhibition can be found on one of my portfolio pages The Laundry Room Portfolio 

 In 2007 I won the Native Instruments Sampling & Synthesis competition where I received an amazing prize from Native Instruments consisting of Komplete and Kore. The winning track is called Zeetar (click on blue title to listen) which was constructed from sampled and designed sounds including a drum kit which I designed from recordings of the sounds of different shoes. It also includes sampler instruments created from original recordings I did of the Oboe and my own voice.  I recorded, produced and mixed the track in my home recording studio, and also at Ealing Film Studios. Here I am receiving my award from Electronic Composer Tim Exile (right) and Stephan Ruehl (left) from Native Instruments.
