I'm currently in St Ives working on time - trace - place. This week's blog post is on the project's website.
A few weeks ago, I attended an FEU webinar on Building Confidence. (If you don’t know what the FEU is, have a look at their website. If you’re in an entertainment union, you can get all their resources for free!). A webinar on confidence could not have come at a better time for me. time [...]
I've been keeping this one quiet because it's a present for Yubi... Here's a new album for The Mortal Path! Each piece is based on one of the characters (see if you can guess which one's which!) You can download the whole album for free on my Bandcamp but if you want to support me [...]
The long-promised recording of Caution. You are approaching the end... is here! This was originally supposed to be performed in March but it snowed, so the concert was cancelled. However, Gavin kindly recorded a version for me to upload. I hope you enjoy!
This post is just a chat. No planning, no in-depth discussion. Just my rambling train of thought. So grab a cup of tea. I'll wait... Got tea? Good. The reason that this post isn't planned out is partly because I wasn't well last week and that means I've got behind on most of the things [...]

Something that I think I've got the hang of now is organising all of the projects that I have going at once. I currently have six projects that I'm actively working [...]
Head on over to the time-trace-place website to read my post about a meeting between the collaborators on our time is different here... project. It was an interesting discussion, but having not yet visited Talliston Gemma and Gary were at a slight disadvantage! Explaining how time and place become distorted once you're inside is not easy...
Listening to music always conjures up strong visual images for me. I don’t mean in the way that it might for someone with synesthesia, where a certain note or chord might be a certain colour. It’s more abstract than that. For example, the third movement of Shostakovich’s 10th Symphony gives me a very clear mental [...]
I really believe in community singing as a way for anyone to have access to music making. You don’t need to be able to play an instrument, you don’t need to read music, you don’t even have to have been part of a music group before. Whatever your level of experience, there will be a [...]
