Dusk Rider

Ambient Music Composition

A composition inspired by the sight of horseriders taking a very late evening ride across The New Forest. I’ve tried to incorporate the sounds of their hooves moving by to create rhythmic interest in the piece, and attempted to use the sound of a hunting owl to form one of the principal melody lines.

Along the Stream

Ambient Music Composition

I composed this after taking the dog out along a stream near Blackwater. It was one of those beautiful still, sunny mornings and the sunlight was filtering through the trees and catching the ripples here and there and turning them into tiny diamonds that seemed to dance and sparkle as they flowed downstream. I was inspired to try to capture the scene in sound.

A Pillow of Clouds

Ambient Music Composition

Have you ever laid on your back in a quiet natural environment on a summer’s day and looked up at the clouds drifting by? I think that they’re endlessly fascinating. I remember thinking how they sometimes resemble soft pillows and set about trying to compose something to reflect that with this work that also features some backwards sound elements.
