Hi, I’m a Sydney-based composer. My formal studies have been in composition (MMus at Sydney University) and to date I’ve composed mostly music for acoustic instruments with the occasional foray into electronic/computer music.
Regarding music theatre, my efforts have centred around my first musical, The Jasper Musical, which is a contemporary take on the Charles Dickens novel, The Mystery Of Edwin Drood (jasperthemusical.com). With that task more or less finished, I’m now increasingly shifting my attention towards the challenging task of seeing The Jasper Musical realised on stage and work on my second musical.
The subjects I am most interested in pursuing in music theatre have to do with the struggles to stay afloat in a very competitive world shaped by capitalism and authority based on the paradigms of 1984 and A Brave New World.
