Here are a few composing credits that were not born in a theatre.
For a full list of credits please see my CV page.
Naxos Audiobooks CD box-set. An unabridged recording of Boccaccio’s classic 14th-century collection of stories, with Simon Russell Beale narrating.
I wrote the music for all 10 songs which form part of the text.
Composition for saxophone and piano. Commissioned by ABRSM and now published as a Grade 4 piece in the current Associated Board syllabus book for saxophone.
Salem / Whiskas
This was my ‘catfood commercial’ job, literally. I wrote a melodramatic silent-movie style piano piece to accompany this cinema and TV advert for Whiskas.

The pieces were commissioned by the choir, and have been recorded by them and sung in competitions such as the National Eisteddfod.

I wrote a suite of jingles and station ident cues for this (sadly now defunct) cable TV channel specialising in classical music.

Once In A Lifetime
Theme tune, song and incidental music for this one-off comedy, for Carlton TV.
