Composer and Arranger
What is your musical background?
Mixing live performance with backing tracks is fun, and I’ve created many backing tracks for the Sydney Children’s Choir. I was nominated for an Art Music Award for my piece “Moon Fire” for Carillon and Electronic Track in 2017.
However I love working with live musicians! I had the best fun working on the arrangements and producing “Hooray for Song” with Lyn Williams and the SCC. I’m super proud of this album as it mixes live performance and soundscapes to create a journey through different environments.
What is your advice to singers performing your works?
With my works for children I would hope that they just have some fun and enjoy the “mashups”of two songs they may already know! The “stomp and clap” of Michael Finnegan makes adding body percussion rhythms to a choir performance more entertaining.
