bespoke music and sound design for dance, theatre, film and more

creative commissions

I have enjoyed a wonderful variety of opportunities making emotive music and sensitive sound design for other artforms including dance, theatre, film and installations. Responding to each brief with my developed intuition and deep compassion, I love tuning into and then supporting the creative vision of others.

Examples of recent commissions


Via a research project led by Nottingham University, I was invited by The National Science and Media museum in Bradford to create a new (Covid adapted) interactive exhibit for families.  Inspired by their collection or objects from The BBC Radiophonic Workshop (the department in the BBC from 1958-late 1990’s where they made sound effects and music for TV and radio), I brought David Boultbee (BREAD Art) on board to create an interactive fun music making and sound sculpting web app. This project is part of a wider Sonic Futures project exploring how we perceive and understand sound.


My third time producing music/sound design for dance. I always wanted to explore the physical yet intangible language of movement with sound, music and voice. I produced and performed a live soundtrack for Company of Others, supporting a dance theatre show telling powerful stories of endings. Funded by Arts Council England, and many supportive partners.

It was such an honour to be invited to collaborate with artist/video art pioneer Madelon Hooykaas. Madelon worked with both Delia Derbyshire and Li Yuan Chia (look up both of these amazing humans if you don’t know them). Commissioned by Manchester Art Gallery, LYC Foundation and supported by Paul Mellon Centre.

Commissioned by The Robot Orchestra, we performed this piece for the launch of Manchester Science Partnerships. Produced by Squirrel Nation. Collaborating with Noisy Toys and Harry Ovington, we created a piece that chartered 24 hours in the city, including data sonification – turning Mobike usage data into musical parameters (such as pitch and rhythm).
