About me


Hello! I’m a musician from B
olton, based in Manchester.
I’m interested in innovative and inclusive ways to create music, using new ideas and new technology.

I studied BA music at the University of Oxford, and then MA Composition at the University of Manchester.

I also write about music - you can find me reviewing at Silent Radio, and writing about music history over at Revoice! Magazine.

I’ve recently been working on project using new technology to convert sound into light. You can read all about it here

Want to work with me?

I’m available to hire for composition, teaching, writing, or anything else you think might be up my street.

02 Writing about music


For Silent Radio


I write reviews of new releases and live music in Manchester for a website called Silent Radio, which you can find collected here.


For Revoice! Magazine


Revoice! Magazine is an online music magazine launched in November 2016, ‘written for and by musicians who engage creatively and critically with history.‘ I’ve been writing about the song Wonderwall - you can read my first piece here, and the next one will be coming out in September.


If you want to write for them too, they both accept submissions from writers at all levels of experience, and are both run by really friendly people, so I’d definitely recommend getting in touch.

You can find everything I’ve written collected over at  https://dmcfmusic.wordpress.com/.
