Another recent theme that I’m proud of: the opening title sequence to the atmospheric horror film The Banshee (dir: Donncha Gilmore).
It was a lot of fun honing in on that John Carpenter aesthetic for the mood of the piece.
The year is 720-亵. Mega-Earth has fallen and the stars are in retreat.
Now Darkness eclipses Light and terror’s shadow turns the sky to salt.
But unearthed from the Archives, a glimmer of steel grants hope…

A few 2018 projects that I’m just updating now:
Night Owls (dir: Donncha Gilmore), a horror short with perhaps the best title font ever. Below is a short extract from the score, featuring some of my infamous viola playing.
Hello again! I’ve decided to upload my new score for Tom Rowley’s 2017 film ‘These Books’. I’ve been working on it for the past while and I’m very excited to finally share it with everyone.
The project was a lot of fun to work on, especially because of the stellar string performances by Elliot Murphy and Patricia Stepien.
Yesterday afternoon I attended the Irish premiere of Bonsoir Luna at the Indiecork festival.
The film received a great reception from the audience, and shared company with a brilliant selection of documentaries, dramas and animation.
Here I am, after a long day travelling, with director Donncha Gilmore!
Here is a snapshot of what I worked on as part of my M.A in Composition for Film and TV at the University of Bristol.
Included are re-scorings of the BBC documentaries ‘Wonders of the Monsoon’ and ‘Miracle in the Marshes of Iraq’, the Wallace & Gromit short ‘The Wrong Trousers’, and assorted work for Sci-Fi, Lifestyle, and Drama.
