Exciting news that the documentary feature I scored, Seahorse, is to receive its world premiere in competition at Tribeca. Directed by Jeanie Finlay and produced by Andrea Cornwell for BBC Storyville it is “one trans man’s pioneering quest to fulfil an age-old desire: to start his own family. This is the story of the dad who gave birth.”
It was a great pleasure to work with Jeanie on this documentary, which I scored for strings, piano, accordion, guitar and electronics.

Fantastic recording session yesterday at Sonica Studios with pianist Yshani Perinpanayagam and guitarist Ned Roberts for several tracks I’ve composed for Jeanie Finlay’s new feature documentary, The Seahorse. Jeanie was so rock n’ roll she flew in and out of Nottingham to lay down some beautiful cello parts. Thanks to Mat and Paul for great engineering.
I’ve really enjoyed working with Jeanie and editor Alice Powell on this excellent film, for Grain Media and BBC.
