New year, new look

So! This website has a slightly fresh coat of paint (it’s been using this new theme for about a month now but oh well) and has also had a rearrangement of the menu tabs, which should hopefully aid in navigation. Those interested in my musical activities can check out the Media tab. Those who know …

Year 4 Semester 1 Portfolio

This portfolio is a summary of the first semester of my final year at ECU/WAAPA. This semester has been unusually tricky for me, not with regard to the tasks at hand particularly, but with regard to summoning the willpower and creativity needed for both assignments and miscellaneous work, and deadlines have been more or less the sole …

“Realisations EP” released!

I have released a new 4-track mini-EP for free streaming and download on SoundCloud. Check it out below: Labelled under the genre of “Instrumental Rock”, this EP features three tracks that are upbeat and diverse, featuring pretty traditional rock instrumentation. Written mostly with assorted keyboard parts front and center, they are relatively simple compositions, and the …

Upcoming Music: My third-year recital!

It’s probably time I used this website to promote what I’m doing in the real world of music. Let’s give this a go: I have a recital coming up! It’s the culmination of the last three years of studying Composition and Music Technology at the Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA). I still have another year …

Year 3 Semester 1 Portfolio

My first semester of my third year – this being the fifth semester overall – is now over. It’s been oddly “easy-going”, but still highly challenging. There’s a sense that I have possibly not undertaken as much as I could have done this time around, that I’ve done a certain amount less composition in terms …

Twenty Sixteen

Hello all, I figured it’d be time to give you a bit of an update post, since I promised one roughly a year ago. 🙁 I do apologise for not actually uploading anything to YouTube like I said I would. I don’t know where this year went, honestly. Certainly it was a long, long ride, but at the same …

Year 2 Semester 2 Portfolio

Another semester done. This one has definitely been the most trying one so far. Nonetheless I feel accomplished having done the work that I could. Here’s downloads to everything I’ve done over this last semester: [Google Drive folder] Hit the button below for the full folio.

Album review: Marconi Union’s “Weightless (Ambient Transmissions Vol. 2)”

I admit that I’m not as into electronic music as I let on, but occasionally something comes along that I just have to investigate. The main track on this record achieved mainstream headlines last year praising its incomparable tranquility. This whole album is, to me, not just listening to high-quality, meticulously-crafted music – it’s a mood and mind …

Year 2 Semester 1 Portfolio!

This has been a hectic, often stressful, but nonetheless rewarding and exceptionally productive year for me so far. I’m continuously taking my music and other creations to new levels – elsewhere in the world, even – and have been putting my name and brand out as much as possible – certainly the Personal Management Skills lectures …
