Very happy to announce I’ve been working on a brand new set of idents for BBC 2 – the first batch of which are out tomorrow (27th September). As both composer and sound designer on the project based at my London studio, my aim was to build unique soundscapes for each film that blurred the line between what could be “music” or “sound”… performing musical instruments in unusual ways and re-working recorded foley and sound effects into more “musical” forms. Most sounds are re-pitched, modulated, delayed and enhanced using a combination of vintage analogue studio equipment and digital techniques in the computer.
Working with BBC Creative and Superunion who oversaw the project, is has been a dream to collaborate with artists and animation studios including Aardman, The Mill, Kijek & Adamski (Strange Beasts), FutureDeluxe, Conlan Normington, David McLeod, Ari Weinkle, Helmut Breineder, Kenneth Robin and Mainframe.
